Dr. Awad was called upon by our request after another surgeon performed a procedure incorrectly on my wife. He informed us of the next procedures that would need to be done, and essentially saved my wife's life. I am forever indebted to Dr. Awad and cannot thank him enough for his kindness, skill and overall compassion for our family during a very difficult time in our lives. I believe that Dr. Awad is one of the best Bariatric surgeons in the state, and highly recommend him.

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.

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.
