It has been almost 3 years since Surgery and I am slowly losing the rest my weight. I had a Total Gastric Bypass surg done by Dr Awad. He is one of the most caring person that I felt completing competence in having my surgery. I am so glad I did. Outstanding Surgeon and always concerned about you after you have had surg. My blood pressure was on the way up and so was my blood sugar. I am almost 3 years out still no blood pressure problems or diabetes. Thanks Dr Awad.

This doctor is horrible. He performed surgery on my Aunt and did not close her up right. my whole family has seen my aunt suffer for more than 3 months already. She has been in and out of the hospital because whatever he did to her now is infected and she can't eat or do anything she is always in pain and throwing up. Her insurance finally got fed up and transferred her to Irvine. The doctors over in Irvine even suggested she sue Dr. Awad for negligence. If anything happens to my aunt it is

Recently had hernia surgery. I was seen by Dr. Awad at his office first. He was courteous and friendly towards me. Carefully explained about the upcoming surgery and aftercare. Surgery went great and I am now very well. Still recovering but very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Awad to a relative or best friend. Thank you.

He was all energy on the first visit, after he diagnosed an ulcer he and his staff became almost impossible to reach. They refused to do follow up even though they were paid, they were incredibly rude and unresponsive, even though the process was now completely ground to a halt as a result of their inaction. After reviewing many other online reviews from a variety of websites I saw the same complaint over and over again. His staff is horrible...smiles at first...venom later. Do not go to him.
