Today was my first visit w/ Dr. Azar. He was very thorough and took time to explain things to me. I've never had a more caring doctor who actually took time to make sure I understood my diagnosis and treatment plan. He is the best doctor I've seen!

I went to this practice 3 times & never saw actual Doctor only PA. Would of had to go a 4th time before seeing Dr. Azar to schedule the actual surgery, had not even seen him after the MRI was told by PA that surgery was needed. Too many delay tactics after I got steroid shot was told to wait a...more
