Dr. Awasum was the best! I left really excited that I found a doctor that cares and very concerned about my issues. I feel confident that I'm in good hands.

Never met a Dr so calm, ready to listen, and assist as Dr. Awasum. He is phenomenal, I honestly appreciate his care and support to our family.

Dr. Awasum is a very passionate doctor that will do anything possible to get to the root of your health problem. He takes the time to listen to you and really pays attention. I really respect him.
in Spring, TX |
I found that he sets a mind set about what is wrong with you based on a mindset, and not about what you are saying is wrong. This mindset allowed me to go into a full flare for 6 weeks before he adjusted his treatment. The treatment changed only because I ended up in the ER.

Dr. Awasum is an excellent Dr. He is caring, and takes the time to answer all of your questions.
in Conroe, TX |
I found Dr Awasum very efficient. His staff was also efficient, but not very friendly. I visited him for an initial visit and then for a procedure. He told me they would follow up and he would discuss with me how to best deal with my condition. I received a call a week later expecting to schedule a follow up, but the girl who called, said, no, he doesn't need to see.you. I consider him my doctor because he was the last to do my procedures, but I don't feel I have a very good relationship.
in Montgomery, TX |
Dr. Awasum is wonderful clinically and personally. His bedside manner is excellent and his ability to really talk with me about my specific condition is wonderful. He really wants me to understand my options. As with all providers, plan on having to spend a little time working with his staff if you want to do anything out of the norm, such as using a different infusion clinic than they normally use. You can get it done - but it takes a little effort.
