Dr. Azer is amazing. After having continual nose bleeding and visiting the ER to no avail, Dr. Azer was able to diagnose the fact that I didn't have a bloody nose, I had a ruptured artery. Every other ENT I contacted told me they didn't treat active nose bleeds. The ER put a clip on my nose and sent me home. When I was at my wits end, Dr. Azer came through. He wasn't covered through my insurance, but he was the on-call ENT at Sharp Memorial. I would highly recommend Dr. Azer.

When I could not get an appointment with ENT thru my 5 letter san diego medical group, UNTIL after the first of the year, I found Dr. Azer. He got me in the next day to diagnose an chronic ear infection. Correct prescription and procedure to clear it up in a week, after follow up. The office in not the most up to date décor. But old school medical attention works!
