Patient Comments (2)
Lyndhurst, NJ |
I went to Dr.Awad based on positive reviews I read online. When he saw me, he told me that I have to pay for the visit up front (even though I have insurance). He spent 5 minutes with me. Nothing was done about my condition and he told me that I have to go to the hospital to pay for a test. This doctor is only here for money and lacks compassion for his patients. He is in the wrong profession. That was my first and last visit to his office. I would not recommend him to anyone.
in Oakland,New Jersey |
Dr. Awad is a very experience and skillful doctor His diagnosis is accurate his right medication is very helpful. I had an operation he came at 3AM to check on me at the hospital he is a patient doctor not a money doctor. Would trust and recommend him for his honesty and skill.
