Very knowledgeable & compassionate. Rare to find that combination.
in Linwood, NC |
Dr. Azar has performed 2 total knee replacements and shoulder surgery on me. No problems at all. I highly recommend him. He treats his patients with care & understanding. His staff is great, as well.
in Thomasville, NC |
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!
in Thomasville |
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 month to see if it was going to get better on it's own. Terrible practice!

Dr. Azar has treated me 3 times for broken bones. Him and his team are great and helped any way they could . They are what I call real professional in medical care.
Dr. Azar is an excellent surgeon. PA Jonathon Adams is the absolute best PA ever! I love seeing him as much as Dr. Azar. They both listen well and tell you/give you treatment needed. Jonathan always has a kind and helpful and sympathetic demeanor while being professional. Dr. Azar can have off days with his bedside manner but not Jonathan. I am absolutely satisfied with their care and treatment - from checkups, to shots, to surgery, to post op follow up. I highly recommend them!

Dr.Azar is a straight shooter and he will try and get you back to normal and without wasting your time. Very good surgeon and would recommend him to my family and friends.
in Thomasville, NC |
He was very kind and considerate of my daughter and for me as a parent! My 9 yr old broke both radius & ulna and needed surgery after he tried to set it twice in the ER. Dr. Azar was very easy to talk to and understand when he explained everything. I was so impressed with his bedside manner.
in Denton |
Dr. Azar displayed a passion for his work that translates into great care. I felt like he was excited to put my knee back together after I suffered several breaks from a fall. I wish all my doctors were this optimistic and caring.
