My family has used Dr. Awantang multiple times and have been 100% satisfied with our care every time. His PA and staff are amazing as well. We never wait long to get an appointment and the wait time in the office is very reasonable.

My wife experienced numbness, tingling, pain, and swelling in her wrist that continued to get worse as time progressed to the point where she dropped things regularly. Went here, the doc came in to see us and finished the visit in less than 10m. Didn't even sit down, just made a passing glance at it, said nothing was wrong and rudely to asked why we even came. Seemed annoyed that he had to get up from his desk in the other office to see a patient. Needless to say, had wrist surgery elsewhere

I have had 2 surgeries on different fingers and had excellent results. I recently had more extensive surgery on my hand and am recovering now. I feel the doctor and staff explained and took care of everything. If I needed surgery again I would return to this office.
