Dr. Azu's appointment availability at Lawrence Hospital is limited to 2 days likely due to her teaching courses. When I made the appointment, I was told to gather previous medical history records ahead of my appointment time and get the records to her office to review in advance of my appointment. I did as the office asked but at my appointment, I waited an hour and 15 mins to see her from the time of check-in. Unacceptable. Knowledgeable doctor but could tweak her office prep for improvement.
We had gone to 3 different surgeons for opinions upon my wife's diagnosis and Dr Azu was by far the most compassionate and thorough. She explained everything in GREAT detail where the others we saw just ran through the reports like robots. She gave us the education we needed to understand what we were dealing with. She is easily accessible and she really does care about her patients. All doctors should be like her.

Dr Azu is amazing. Rare to find a doctor these days that truly cares about the patients well being, not just physically but emotionally. Dr. Azu is extremely detail oriented and compassionate. I'm so glad to have been under her care. I consider her an angel.

I went to Dr. Azu for a second opinion. She was extremely down to earth and knowledgeable. She spent a lot of time with me discussing my concerns and reviewing my history. I know this is what is expected, but she did it on a superior level. I would highly recommend her.
