Dr. Awan performed an appendectomy on our daughter at 2am. At that late hour, he was patient, alert and reassuring. He answered all of our questions and gave us great confidence in the procedure. His follow up was thorough and professional. We hope to not have need for a surgeon in the future, but if we do, we will definitely return to Dr. Awan.

We met Dr Awan during an emergency trip to CHOC for my 11 year old son who subsequently needed an appendectomy. Dr. Awan came in prior to the surgery to introduce himself. He not only spent time explaining the procedure to us but allowed my son to ask any and all questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Awan who was just as thorough during our check up as well. Thank you for taking the time to allow me to feel at peace during my son's surgery, I knew that he was in good hands.

My son had an emergency Appendectomy at CHOC, with Dr. Awan as the surgeon. Dr. Awan prepared us for any issue my son might experience and made us (mom and dad) feel completely comfortable and trusting of Dr Awan's knowledgeable experience in this area. Absolutely EVERYTHING Dr. Awan prepared us for happened without alarm. We thank you for your compassion and fantastic communication at every step. Top notch!

Dr. Awan performed the Kasai surgery on my daughter when she was less than three months old. He was very thorough, made sure we understood my daughters condition and the procedure/care required. Dr Awan was very patient and always professional. Dr Awan always made himself available to us even after the surgery. Recently, he removed three hernias from my daughter and again he went above and beyond what we expected. ALL scars are VERY minimal you can hardly tell even with her belly button hernia.

We had the best experience with Dr. Awan who performed an appendectomy on our son. He explained everything so well, reassured us, and explained to our son about the procedure. He followed up with us afterwards and gave us the play by play and reassured us. His office staff was so friendly and helpful on our follow up visit. Our experience with Dr. Awan was excellent. He is calm, knowledgeable, and truly cared about our experience. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Awan performed hernia surgery on my 7wks old baby. He did a great job. I truly appreciated the level of professionalism he and his team provided. I also asked so much questions, and Dr.Awan was patient and answered them all. It was a stressful time for me as a parent to see my baby go through that, so to have a surgeon who can put you at ease was needed and appreciated. I recommend Dr. Awan.

In 2014, Dr Awan performed a Kasai surgery on our 2 month old son after he was diagnosed with biliary atresia. Extreme care and urgency was required, and he talked us through the procedure and process. He explained his training in the procedure and the risks and results. My son has not seen the inside of a hospital in over two years, and hasn't had a fight with cholangitis since the summer of 2014. He is doing extraordinarily well. Dr. Awan was instrumental in my son's survival.
