Dr. Azam has been wonderful in helping me find the right treatment. He has a pleasant disposition, and made it easy for me to speak with him, even on our first session. It is clear has had a lot of experience, and understands how to make the diagnosis/treatment. I am very happy with my sessions and would highly recommend him to future patients.

I’ve always had low level anxiety, but after going back to work during Covid, I started having terrible panic attacks. I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Azam. He is caring and warm, non judgmental and understood my issues. He placed me on the correct medications. I started feeling better straightaway, and now almost three months later, I’m feeling great. I’m so grateful to get my life back. I can’t recommend Dr Azam enough.

Dr. Azam is a wonderfully professional and knowledgable psychiatrist. From the moment I first visited him, I felt comfortable with his relaxing demeanor and his obvious understanding of mental health issues. His guidance and expertise have helped me better navigate some of life's more demanding challenges.

Dr.Azam is a personable, kind, sensitive and competent psychiatrist. He listens and attempts to develop hypotheses about the nature of your problems. He is careful about medication and is easily accessible should you need to contact him between appointments. His office is inviting and cozy and you don’t feel rushed to leave. I would recommend Dr. Azam without hesitation.

I have been going to Dr. Azam for over a year. He has been helping me primarily through medication management for my Anxiety and ADD. His office setting is relaxed and I find him to be an intelligent and calming person. While we do not delve deeply into issues through therapy, he does offer advice and suggestions where appropriate.

I was a patient of Dr. Azam for 9 years in Gainesville, FL. He was always patient and really took the time to listen to what I had to say. He was always very respectful and polite. One of the best things about him was that he was always accessible if I had a question, a problem with a prescription or needed to make another appointment. I would highly recommend Dr. Azam and I wish him the best of luck in the future!

Dr. Azam is absolutely wonderful! He is the best Psychiatrist I have ever been to. It is difficult to get an appointment with a psychiatrist in Miami, however I was able to get in with Dr. Azam no problem. He truly cares and listens to you. I had never had a Psychiatrist actually talk to me, and treat me like I’m normal, till I met Dr. Azam. He treated my anxiety and I believe he saved my life!

I was referred to Dr. Azam by my PCP for work related anxiety and stress. I found him to be comfortable to talk to as well as a great listener. He was very compassionate with my situation and I felt very comfortable talking to him about my work situation. I am a psychologist and had worked with many psychiatrist over the years and found Dr. Azam to be one of the finest professionals in this field and I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing psychiatry services.

Had a horrible experience while looking for a new psychiatrist. He was abrasive, and upon questioning my religious views i felt uncomfortable. He did nothing to re-evaluate the medication I’ve been on for 6 years and all but tossed me out. I don’t know if i got him on a bad day or that’s just his bedside manner, but I’d never go back even if his overpriced payments were free. I left in tears and anger and had an anxiety attack to boot from my experience. Horrible doctor.

Finding a good psychiatrist can be a challenge and I feel very lucky to have found Dr Azam. He is a great listener, and conveys concern for his patients. He is hopeful and optimistic and is respectful of his patient’s concerns and feelings. He is conscientious and respectful of the patient's time. He is warm and empathic and has a manner that makes it easy for patients to feel comfortable confiding in him. I highly recommend Dr Azam.
