Dr. Azar is the best. She has helped me so much in many ways. I have been through breast cancer and it has been so hard for me. She makes me feel like her friend. She really cares. Her staff are very kind. They are willing to help work your appointments out and calling other doctors that Dr. Azar would recommend. I am very thankful to have Dr. Azar.

My experience was great. I really love this doctor and will be dreading the day I ever have to switch. No one likes going to the doctor but Dr. Azar makes it a little easier. SHE IS THE BEST. I recommend her to all of my friends and mention her anytime the word Doctor is brought up in a conversation. Always an A++++ in my book!!

I would recommend Dr. Azar to anyone. She is not only a very good doctor, but is truly interested in your best health benefits and treatments. Her staff has been very accommodating to my needs when I have called and left messages. You can't ask for anyone better to take care of you than Dr. Rena Azar and her staff. AND with two days of the week in the Chattanooga area, it makes it even easier to see her.
