I have visited two other doctors of pulmonary however this doctor was different. I recently was hospitalized for Covid and upon discharge I needed to follow up with a Pulmonary physician. The one that was listed on my discharge papers didn’t have a clinic. So I called the hospital’s directory and chose Dr.Awan… immediately I recognized her as one of the physicians that visited me in the hospital. I felt at ease. She has a intelligent bedside manner and is efficiently thorough in my care. Her staff is incredible. From the front office to the back office this office runs on one accord. They are very knowledgeable and dependable but most of all polite. I recommend Dr.Awan for all your pulmonary needs. Try them you won’t be disappointed!

Family was in hospital and she never once visited them. Only saw them on television screen. Unfortunately it’s probably the reason they passed. The nurses said that Matagorda let’s her run the hospital on a television screen but never coming to visit them. The fact that this is allowed shows how crappy this place is. The top people should not allow this behavior.

Dr Awan was recommended by a friend who told me that she is a very smart and thoughtful doctor. I was very impressed by her demeanor. Despite being very busy, She took the time to answer all my questions and explained to me my very complicated diagnosis . She treated me and literally gave me my life back!

Very disappointing patient experience. Nice lady in person. Not sure about medical competency, My disappointment is with the three follow up appointments at her offices. I had three appointments following a fairly serious lung condition. She was very late for all three appointments. Failed to read my files prior to our appointment and missed a potentially very serious issue, which was the main reason for the appointment. I had to remind her of the issue.
