Patient Comments (3)
in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL |
Dr. Awad is an excellent surgeon and saved my wife's life by completing a very major pancreatic surgery known as the Whipple procedure. There are only two surgeons in Jacksonville who do this surgery. We chose Dr. Awad for his experience and confidence he instilled in us. He performs about 40 of these surgeries per year. I can not say enough wonderful things about Dr. Awad. Whenever we needed him, I would text him, and within minutes, he would call me, or text me back.

From the moment we met Dr. Awad he gave us hope for a cure. Other surgeons ,with more experience than Dr. Awad, declined to attempt to remove the tumor where Dr. Awad was successful.His staff and support fellows are just wonderful helpful and caring professionals. Dr. Awad is a patient and understanding man and he was able to instil confidence in our trust with him. If you are far away and contemplating staying close to home for a surgeon; DON'T, get to Dr. Awad he will save your life !
Dr Awad is a miracle worker & an exceptional Surgen. However, post surgery office visits are difficult to schedule & be prepared to wait in the examination room for over an hour.
