I can't explain how much Dr.Awan has changed my life he is one of the best doctors in the world. When I first meet him I was on my death bed he has helped and encourage me to want to do better my breathing is better and my life. He helped give me a second chance to be able to live and breathe agin. It's been 8 years since I smoked a cigarette and I think him and God. If it was more doctors like him in this world it would be a better place. Thank you so much for helping me and your other patients

Very knowledgeable, personable, and interested in my overall health. Spent adequate time to learn about all my medical issues beyond my obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Awan has a manner that puts me at ease. Highly recommend Dr. Awan as he has seen my wife for a Pulmonary issue a few years ago. He handled that with 'kid gloves' which was instrumental in my wife's recovery.

Felt that my husband got the best possible treatment and he owes his life to Dr,Awan and Staff! My husband might not be alive if Dr.Awan didn’t listen and insist on him going to the Hospital and follow his diagnosis and recommended treatment! Very caring and concerned!”

Very polite yet upfront. He doesn't beat around the bush but offers reassurance you will be OK if you follow his direction. He doesn't hide anything from you or hold back. His goal is to make sure you have a complete understanding of your diagnosis and prognosis. He's very cordial and encouraging.

I wish all doctors had the interest in their patients as Dr. Awan does. For a first time patient, Dr. Awan treated me like a person, not a patient and was thoroughly interested in all of my health issues, not just pulmonary. My appointment with Dr. Awan was like talking with a friend that I had known for years. My wait time from actual appointment time to the time I left the office was the shortest time I had spent in a doctor's office in I can remember when.

Dr. Awan actually listens to his patients. Also, he will not hesitate to be blunt with you if needed. I appreciate that. I like Dr. Awan so much I have an appointment for my husband. I trust Dr. Awan's medical judgment and the fact he listens to you.
