Dr. Azer, is an excellent doctor. His bedside manners is phenomenal. He is a religious person an that gives me comfort knowing that he knows the word of God. I have had two total knee replacements. My knee was deformed, but now I am walking normal. Thanks Dr. Azer for being a great surgeon.

Dr. Azer is nothing shy of amazing. He is warm, compassionate, knowledgeable and so very talented. I could not have asked for better. He performed a full hip replacement and I was able to get back to work less than three weeks later. I will be forever grateful to him and his entire staff for giving me back my freedom. Thank you, Dr. Azer!

I saw Dr. Azer, so patient with me. I have seen over 10 Ortho doctors and they all never even had time to look me in my face to talk to me. This doctor (even tho I waited over 2 and one half hour for other things done) is such a blessing to his patients. He is a Godly man that really loves his mother, and I have waited long enough, I'm trusting him with my knees this year! This is where I have been directed!!! He made me so comfortable. Thanks Dr.Azer!

Dr. Azer is a terrific surgeon. Down to earth, excellent at explaining the surgery and what to expect afterwards. I had a total knee replacement 7 weeks ago and spent only 1 night in the hospital. After 2 weeks I no longer needed a cane and I was back to driving! Dr. Azer uses the most current technology and has veered away from old past norms that no longer provide meaningful care (eg; the passive motion machine). Dr. Azer's Staff is very professional and efficient.

I would not be walking without pain right now if it was not for Dr. Azer. He went over what I expected of him, redid a defective surgery, and helped me to have a life again. I will forever be grateful. His staff is right on as well. Thank you all.
