Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

He is very informative, professional and listens well. Wait times in waiting room can vary depending on time of day. His nurse practitioner and other staff is too.

Dr. Azar for example could not care less about his patients and seems content to write scripts and cash his check. The last dozen appointments I've had with him were all easily under two minutes during which he appeared uninterested. Another source of irritation was about a year ago when I asked for an increase in my medication. As soon as I suggested increasing the dosage, he looked up and said I had to take a "random" drug test (which I found hilarious, as if the requested increase in dosage had nothing to do with the drug test). I passed but had to pay for the test out of pocket... I have not requested for further increases or changes in medication out of fear that I will have to pay out of pocket again.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I had an appointment on Saturday August 8th and they canceled on the 7th because I asked about FMLA paperwork for my employer. They would not even reconsider after I said to disregard the paperwork. It seems they don't care about mental health all that much. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! THEY SUCK!!! If I could give zero stars I would.

I would not recommend Dr. Azhar to anyone who values his or her time. He runs at least 30 min behind schedule every time. Last time it was an hour. No one from the front office bothered to call. There are so many other options.
