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.
