Dr. Aziz is wonderful, but it is very hard to contact the office for an appointment. They just ignore messages and never call you back.

Never discussed my mom's conditions with us now going on 4 days and nothing. Had to get the social worker to call and demand him to speak with us. He wanted to release my mother to rehab when she still cannot breathe on her own or even hit an on call button. We still don't know long term issues. We just hear he is very busy. Well my mom has fungal pnuemonia which is not the sniffles. Your lack of time management is not my problem.

Dr Aziz is the most amazing doctor ever, my niece Shelley had a tumor at the end of the brain stem thank God it was not cancerous. Dr Aziz and his team of doctors performed a 19 hour surgery on her that was in March of 2017 and we are very happy to say Shelley is doing great she has some side effects from her surgery but thank you to Dr Aziz he removed the whole tumor and we are happy to still have our Shelley with us today. God bless you Dr Aziz and your whole team.

If you want a intelligent, heart filled doctor go to dr Aziz. He's a wonderful person there are not enough positive things to say about him through all the doctors I been to and I've been to a lot he is TOP notch! And I would recommend him to anyone needing a neurosurgeon his follow up care is just as amazing. So if u have a issue that requires brain surgery please go to him and have every chance possible.
