What People Say About Dr. John Azar, MD

He treated my mom after she was diagnosed with lung ca. I went to a couple of appmnts with my mom and I was not impressed. He had been seeing my mom for a couple months before I went to an appointment (I lived 4 hours away) and he didn't even know she had a daughter. He didn't ask who I was during the appmnt. I asked about her condition afterwards and he asked me who I was. How do you treat a cancer patient and not know about their children?? I feel like he treated the disease and not the person. Also, he never talked about hospice with her. She was terminally ill and he NEVER brought it up. My dad went to all appmnts and told me it was never discussed. He also gave her a dose of chemo one week before she died. She had lost > 40 lbs, was not eating well, was falling, and her pain was worse. Why would you give chemo to someone so ill? Also, after she died, we never heard from him again. No sorry for your loss, nothing. I work in palliative care and would not recommend him.

My husband was treated for 3 years by Dr. Azar for esophageal cancer after we moved to Morgantown. His original diagnosis 7 years ago had an average survival rate of 3 months. Dr. Azar was always attentive and caring. My husband and I both trusted his recommendations and his explanations.
