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.
