I was having a problem with my parathyroid. I saw Dr. Azizi and he knew exactly what my problem was when he examined me after 5 years of misery. He sent me to UNC for surgery and I have never felt better. He is an awesome doctor and his staff is wonderful.

Will never recommend this doctor. Incredibly intelligent and also incredibly arrogant. Clearly making enough money to refuse patients. Just bear in mind that if you miss a total of 3 appointments whether you pay a fee or not, Dr. Azizi will REFUSE to see you. They will refuse to acknowledge a cancellation and mark it as a no-show. Even if you have an emergency and contact the office, it counts as a no-show and will add to your “no-shows”. Before becoming established for 10 years at this practice and becoming familiar and comfortable with this doctor, be sure and go ahead and know if you’re going to have an emergency and not be able to attend your appointment? With intelligence and accomplishment comes arrogance and insensitivity. Concerned with money, as if there is a lack of. Good luck.

I always recommend Dr. Azizi to everyone. He cares about his patients and very thorough. He explains everything clearly so you understand. His entire staff is outstanding. I have been a patient since 2006 and I drive 2 hrs to get to appointments, I will not go anywhere else!

Dr. Azizi rocks! I have never experienced a doctor more on top on his practice than Dr. Azizi. Within a week and a half, new patient set up was complete, labs done, ultrasound, nuclear thyroid uptake test at the hospital, results, and Rx meds called in for treatment. I wish every experience at a doctor's office was this smooth. Amazing practice and staff! I could not be more pleased with them. This office goes above and beyond to deliver a Personal Patient Experience! Genuine staff, thorough, and responsive. This doctor runs a tight ship and I LOVE it!

Dr. Azizi is not only brilliant, but also personable. He truly cares about his patients! He and Michelle are very kind and knowledgeable.

Whenever I went for my appointment, the staff are always helpful. They explain and questions i may have about my insurance, procedures, etc. Dr. Azizi explained to me how important it is to keep my appointment and even congratulated me on my weight loss success that's helping improve my thyroid. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.

I am so glad that Dr. Azizi was available to see me when I had an issue with thyroid nodules. He was very aggressive in his diagnosis as opposed to my previous endocrinologist. The final results were good, but he recommended a genetic testing on my tissue that reassured me that the nodules are non-cancerous.

I have been a patient of Dr Azizi for 13 years now. When I first went to his office, he determined I had 3 nodules that looked abnormal. He put me on medication for 3 months & had me to return for another ultrasound. He biopsied them & 2 of them were cancerous. He set me up for surgery right away for a complete thyroidectomy. After surgery, he was able to get me on the correct dochage of medication. I see him every year for an ultrasound and am doing great. It’s always such a pleasure to visit

Dr Azizi is a wonderful example of a doctor who takes his oath very seriously. He is professional, compassionate and in my observation cares for all people with the same level of proficiency. It would take an essay to share all of the fine qualities of Dr Azizi. The staff at Wilmington Endocrinology share the same level of professionalism, dedication and care that Dr. Azizi models. The office is very clean, warm and inviting and the staff make each person that enters feel welcome. Exceptional!

Dr Azizi is great! After having thyroid cancer and having it removed, he has been to careful to do ultrasounds to be sure the cancer hadn’t spread. I drive 2 hours to see him and would drive twice that much gladly because he is the best!

I have never had such a pleasant appointment. From the time I walked in the door until the time I left, I saw a total of 6 people. Every single one of them were extremely courteous and helpful. I even called back the next day to tell the Office Manager about my experience and she was courteous as well. I don't recall ever seeing a doctor and the doctor telling me that it was nice to meet me when he walked out, but Dr. Azizi did. Great experience!!

I would recommend Wilmington endocrinology they saw me when my health was at it's worst and took the time to explain to me what was going on and made recommendations for treatment that would best meet my needs. Dr. Azizi is very passionate about his work cand shows great compassion in treating his patients. He and his staff treat everyone with great care with concern for their well being.
