Some doctors choose their career paths for the right reasons. They genuinely want to help people. Dr. Al-Azzawi is one of those surgeons. I know because I am a nurse and did my research. Dr. A recently performed major abdominal robotic surgery for colon cancer. I had never had surgery before and was terrified of the complications. He was reassuring, explained everything. Amazed at the outcome. Very little pain. No infection. Short recovery. Competence. Skill. Intelligence. Caring. Great team!

Dr. Al Azzawi performed my colon cancer surgery. I could not have been in better hands.  Dr. Al Azzawi is a highly skilled surgeon whose operative skills are matched by his calm,  patient and informative demeanor.  As per his instructions, I was up and walking the very same day as my surgery which clearly enhanced my recovery time. After two days in the hospital I was able to go home and two weeks later resume limited activity at the gym. His staff, Shurla and Wanda are tremendously supportive.

Dr. Al-Azzawi explained my situation so that I easily understood. He drew pictures and answered all of my questions before the surgery. He is an exceptional surgeon. Aside from the precautionary weight lifting restriction after surgery, I experienced no downtime. I felt little or no pain. Friends could hardly believe that I had had a colectomy. His bedside manner is kind. I highly recommend Dr. Al-Azzawi!

I has Robotic colon surgery by Dr Al-Azzawi and the entire experience was a positive one. He was patient, explained every detail, and never rushed. He is highly skilled in colon surgery and was fellowship trained at Cleveland Clinic. So, not just a nice guy but one with the training and experience I wanted. I was 3 days in hospital and home with no issues, he is follows new protocols with proven faster recovery times. He returned my calls, his MA, Analu is excellent, I highly recommend.

Dr. Al-Azzawi is very kind and professional. His expertise allayed any concerns I may have had during my post-op recovery. I'm very pleased to have had him as my surgeon. It has been very easy to schedule follow-up appointments, and he and his team continues to show compassion and urgency for my case. Thank you, Dr. Al-Azzawi!

My mom was diagnosed with colon cancer. It was a blessing to find Dr Al-Azzawi who was very positive and guided us through the next steps. He took the time to explain the risks of a colectomy surgery and what to expect. He was caring, kind, and sensitive to our worries. Thanks God and to Dr Al-Azzawi, my mom is cancer free, and recuperating very well. The fact that Dr Al-Azzawi is an specialist of the colon and an expert in robotics surgery made my mom's surgery a success and less risky.

I found Dr.. Al-Azzawi a warm, caring, professional surgeon. He explained everything in detail, and followed up after the surgery with a details explanation what had been found, and what following steps were going to be taken, and why. He coordinated with my primary physician, and scheduled additional needed procedures.

Dr. Al-Azzawi is a fantastic surgeon. He took great care of my father over the span of 2 years, and was always more than willing to spend the time to give us the info about his healing. My father was in the hospital for a month straight after his first surgery due to complications, and there was not a day that passed that Dr. Al-Azzawi was not in to see him and give us info on how he was doing. Truly a wonderful man, and made my father's colostomy, and the reversal much easier on us all!

When I was admitted to the hospital that’s when I met Dr. Al-Azzawi, he patiently explained the procedure and the expected result to my husband and me. He calmly answered all of our questions. He made this difficult experience easier to handle. He saved my life, I highly recommend him! Wanda and Mary Lu are fantastic as well.

Dr. Al-Azzawi is a wonderful knowledgeable, caring surgeon. He listens to concerns and explains in a calm caring manner, not with any pompous attitude. He is devoted to you while at appointments and in his care. Absolute favorite doctor saved my boyfriend's life, he did not give up until he got to the source of the problem. Anna- Lou is his right hand woman!!
