Dr Awad performed a liver transplant on me on Jan 11 2013. He put me on the transplant list on wed the 9th of jan, on thurs jan 10th, the nurse came in and said they have a liver for me. that night at midnight i underwent surgery and at 730 friday the 11th of january i had a new liver and a new life. thanks to the expertise of Dr Awad and his team. I know there are many good and great doctors out there, but i personally recommend Dr Joseph Awad.
