Patient Comments (3)
Exeter, NH |
Dr Azar completely missed my family member's thyroid issues even though she was specifically given symptoms and asked about testing. Not recommended at all for thyroid conditions.
in Portsmouth, NH |
I came to Dr. Azar with chronic: sinus infections, earaches, cluster headaches and sore throats. She offered to scope my nose. Then told me that I have empty nose syndrome due to previous surgery. She suggested I try steroids and said there is a small chance that it will help. She offered to give me a sinus rinse, which some people find comforting. I agreed. I was stunned to see our very brief visit would cost me for two surgeries and a consultation that came just under $2K. What?!?!?!
She does not explain possible side effects of surgery. Especially long lasting side effects that could make one choose to opt out of surgery. Full disclosure wasn't offered. Explained procedure in a casual, no big deal 30 second way. Does not have your best interest at heart. I suspect money is the motivator with Dr. Azar. Or just burnt out. Car salesman type of appt. The quick, slick kind. Drop your insurance and go to Naturopathic Doctor or Chiropractor instead.
