Amazing Experience.
Dr. Azi is not only professional but very caring toward his patients and staff. While maintaining a high level of professionalism toward me, I also witnessed his playful side with his staff while they were working on my file/insurance. Such a breath of fresh air to see a doctor treat his staff like family. He is extremely gentle during the exam, and explained everything in detail, including my options. I had an emergency visit and he and his staff were able to schedule surgery the next day. I have already given is name to a colleague, so when she is ready to have surgery she knows who to contact.

The right doctor
After 2 surgeries from an ER doctor and one from another doctor, my fistula kept flaring up. I decided to get a second opinion from Dr Azimuddhin, and I was convinced to go for a third surgery. Right after the surgery I felt this time it would be all fixed. Because he did the procedure so clean and the incision was thoroughly stitched. I have never given any reviews, but the pain and the procedures I went through last year literally took a toll on me. Thanks to Dr. Azimuddhin, he treated me and solved my issue in merely couple of weeks. Please don’t wait or be scared to get help if you have any colon issues, go to him and get his expert opinion.

Dr. Azi performed emergency hernia surgery on my 83 year old father a month ago. He was straightforward and honest. He saved my father’s life and my family is so grateful to him. God really him thru performing the surgery which was considered complicated. I recommend Dr. Azi to anyone especially for an elderly patient who is scared. His kindness and compassion goes a long way. May god continue to bless him as well.

Awesome doctor!!
Dr. Azi is the most caring doctor I have ever had! He has helped me through a blood clot, two colonoscopies, he's also helped me through a surgery while I was in the hospital. He truly goes above and beyond. Not only is he an awesome doctor, he is a friend.

I found Dr. Azi in 2018 when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was extremely impressed from the first visit and trust his judgment on what needs to be done. He has an awesome bedside manner and truly cares for his patients. (His sense of humor isn't too bad, either!) He is very thorough and made sure I understood exactly what was going to happen. He is THE best... I wish I could have him as my PCP. 10 out of 10!!!!!

I was referred to Dr.Azimuddin by my GI and PCP doctor for my diverticulitis and he came highly recommended. He recommended surgery and since I have never had surgery in my life I was nervous and had questions. He explained the surgery and answered all my questions very patiently. I am very glad I went to Dr.Azimuddin and had my surgery. He has a very good bedside manner as well and the surgery went very well and I am 5 weeks Post-Op and feeling so much better. His staff are nice, friendly and helped me with my medical leave forms...(thank you Cece,Gaby and Evelyn!) I highly recommend DrAzimuddin.

I visited Dr. Azmuddin for a routine colonoscopy, and he did an excellent job. He is very competent, intelligent, and friendly. For the first time, I experienced almost no recovery time from the procedure. After a short stay in the hospital, I walked out with my husband to enjoy a large breakfast. I am also pleased that Dr Azmuddin gave me a choice of 2 good hospitals: Houston Methodist-Willowbrook and St. Lukes. I chose Houston Methodist, and was very happy with all of their services.
