Dr. Azzam is a great surgeon and truly cares about his patients. He recently performed rotator cuff and bicep repair on me. He did a wonderful job of describing my injury as well as describing the procedure. I am very satisfied with the outcome and would recommend him to anyone.

Great experience! I had never broken a bone until I fell and broke my elbow. Dr. Azzam assured me I didn't need surgery OR a cast. Under his guidance and experience I recovered good as new. Thank you sir and your staff for a comfortable experience.
