Patient Comments (47)
Fenton, MO |
While Dr. Azzam was friendly and nice, he did a poor job of addressing my concerns. He diagnosed something without and exam to verify his conclusion. Additionally, I had to inquire about pain relief and an order for physical therapy. I much prefer a doctor who will tell me how to treat the issue. I shouldn't had had to do his job. It was a very disappointing experience.
I personally take each patient's history and perform an exam. X-rays are taken and read immediately in the office. Advanced imaging is ordered when clinically indicated. I discuss my treatment recommendations at the end of each visit, and a physical therapy prescription is provided before the patient leaves the exam room. We are always looking for ways to improve the patient experience. If you would like to discuss your particular visit, please feel free to call the office at your convenience.

He was the best surgeon that I have had. He fixed my thumb and his sutures were so tiny that the scare will be very minimal. His caring and bed side manner was wonderful. He is a very caring Doctor!

I had a rotator cuff tear from a accident back in June. I did not know it was a tear at the time. After a few weeks I saw Dr. Azzam. Got the MRI and verified it was a rotator cuff tear. Within a week I was having the surgery and immediately started recovery. I didn't have any questions at first but after a while, I thought of some. Answered all of my questions. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I would most definitely recommend him.
in St. Louis, MO |
I was so relieved to find same/next day appts. The online reviews were most helpful and true! He's friendly, helps you understand your injury, and listens to your concerns or questions. He tried pt first and when that didn't help he gave me the option of surgery or not; my choice. He calmed my fear of surgery with a thorough explanation about the procedure in a gentle, concerned manner. Post-op info was very helpful! Very helpful/friendly assistant and staff. I highly recommend Dr. Azzam!!
Fort Myers |
Dr. Azzam was fantastic. I had a complete tear in my rotator cuff. I'd heard horror stories about the pain after the surgery. Dr. Azzam calmed my fears and explained exactly what he would do during the surgery. After surgery he explained what he did and provided pictures to my friend who was taking me home. He patiently answered my questions during both of my post surgery follow up appointments. Thank you Dr. Azzam!!!

I am 58yrs. old and have been thru several major surgeries In my life by fantastic surgeons. Dr. Azzam is at the top of that list. His professionalism, preparedness, knowledge, and compassion to let his patient know he cares and will do whatever it takes to give them the quality of life prior to the injury. The protocols for pre-surgery readiness and the post -surgery structured layout for his required therapy enforces the commitment for his patients. Excellence! Describes the care you receive.

Dr. Azzam performed a ACL replacement using 2 of my hamstrings. There's a technical term for that I am sure. He did a wonderful job! I am 3 months out and doing excellent. His bedside manner is caring and thoughtful. He obviously knows his craft as evidenced by the tiny scar the made to perform such a complex surgery. I am thrilled and would recommend him to anyone looking for a orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Azzam repaired my rotator cuff and I am very satisfied with the results. I was told what to expect and given clear instructions. He was very professional while having a very good "bedside manner" and I would recommend him to anyone I know.

Dr. Azzam was informative and understanding. I trust his medical judgement and I am impressed with how well he helped me recover from my hip surgery.
in Imperial, MO |
Thank you Dr. Azzam and your staff for taking such awesome care of me!!! I am fully recovered, back to full force, and right on schedule!!! Dr. Azzam was very careful with his diagnosis and made sure we did everything possible before surgery. That included 2 MRI's and a round of physical therapy before we confirmed what he thought my injury was. A complete tear of my bicep tendon, labrum and AC joint. I would not wish shoulder surgery to my worst enemy..if it's the only option choose my DOC!!!

We could not be more grateful for Dr. Azzam' s care of our 93 year old mother. He repaired her broken femur with great skill and continued to care for her for several months after. His encouragement helped her to believe that even at her age she would be up and walking again. His caring , kindness and skill have worked in amazing ways in our mother's recovery! We are profoundly grateful to him and his caring staff. The best!

I would definitely recommend Dr. Azzam to family and friends and have. He takes the time to explain the situation, but explain in terms that one can understand. I had an issue when he was out of town at one point and he called several times to check up on me to make sure I was doing okay even when the issue had been taken care of. He was able to get my Dad in on an emergency basis as well as my daughter.
in CEDAR HILL, MO |

Dr.Azzam saw me for a recurrent injury on my right shin. He was personable and listen to my concerns attentively. I wasn't rushed through my appointment. X-rays were done and read right in the office. I left my first appointment with a diagnosis and plan for physical therapy.

I saw Dr. Azzam by chance the first time Nov of 2016 for a broken ankle. I didn't need surgery for that fall and he assured me that I would heal up nicely, which I did. Not three months later, I tripped off the porch while not paying attention and this time needed surgery on my ankle. I was confident in his assessment and what I needed. Surgery was a breeze everything healed perfectly. I recommend him highly. His great personality, a definite plus!
in House Springs, MO |
Dr Azzam was very friendly and informative. He explained my injury and how he would repair my wrist. He also got me scheduled quickly so the surgery could be completed before the end of the year. He always answered all of my questions. When I had a CT scan he called me the same day with the results and his plans for treatment. Everyone in his office was friendly and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Azzam.
Fenton, MO |
I was having shoulder pain and feared I may need surgery. Dr. Azzam performed a thorough exam, and ordered x-rays that I was able to obtain in his office that day. He reviewed the x-rays and explained no need for surgery at this time, and recommended we start with an injection and therapy. The injection relieved my pain and I started therapy the following week. A BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Azzam and his team for taking great care of me. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr. Azzam was excellent! He took the time to listen when others did not, performed my surgery, and now I am pain free and my quality of life has returned. Dr. Azzam is an excellent physician I would recommend him to family and friends. As a healthcare manager I have the experience to know good quality care and I had no qualms about recommending that my primary care physician send his patients to Dr. Azzam should they need his services too.
in St Louis, MO |
I went to Dr Azzam for a broken wrist and a large hematoma on my right leg from an auto accident. He performed the surgery to drain the hematoma and found additional damage to the leg. He did not pretend to know everything, when it came to the health of the skin above the hematoma he sent me to a specialist because he wanted me to have the best care possible. There was never a wait for my office visits and the staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. I can't say enough about this doctor, great!

Dr. Azzam did a great job with my hip scope surgery! I had pain for months and was told by other doctors that it was a strained muscle.
