Horrible Doctor.. Wouldn't listen to what I had to say. Did many test (never told me the blood work I was getting done) Made me believe I had M.S. when the results came back negative he wanted nothing to do.. When asked if I had migraines he basically told me I don't have headaches. My mother went with me; when she tired to ask a question he completely dismissed her and her question saying it wasn't about what I was sent there for. 2 visits i had with him-saw him for about 15 minutes total.

I would never recommend this So called Dr. He lead me to believe that I had MS. Once all the tests came back, with negative results for MS he wiped his hands of me. I asked him about my migraines and he said take Tylenol.

Dr Azurin discharged me from his practice for being late. The first he thought I was late, I had my previous encounter sheet in my car. I actually arrived ahead of time. They wouldn't hear anything about it. Last week, I just messed up. When I was first Dr. Azurin's patient, he or his staff failed to retrieve my records, though he told me that was his responsibility. No one called to reschedule. I got someone to cover me at work, left and sat in his waiting room to learn I had to come back.

Did not ask me to explain what was going on. No interest in listening to what I had to say. Guessing what he thinks might be wrong. Ordering tests that are not correlated too what is going on. Reaching for things. Will just keep ordering unnecessary tests. Waited 1 1/2 hours before he saw me. Not acceptable.
