What People Say About Dr. Nigel Azer, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Acer is awesome, he did my first knee replacement in 2004, before surgery he asked me if he could pray with me and he did, no doctor ever ask if he could pray with me before surgery. When I needed a second one in 2004 on the other knee, no one but Dr. Azer, he has fantastic hands. I told my Pastor about him and he said he never met a doctor that pray with patients and he had to meet him and he did with the revision of the second one in 2013. When I messed up Rotator cuff, it was Dr. A. ??

Dr. Azer is absolutely fabulous!!! Several doctors recommended knee replacement. I suffered and put it off for years. I couldn't take the pain any longer, and Dr. Azer performed a knee replacement. - best thing I have ever done for myself. Haven't had a bit of trouble with it. To top it all off - the ultimate kicker on why I love him? He says "God bless you". He is an unapologetic believer in God and prayed with me before the surgery.

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.
