I can't say enough good things about Dr. Awad--he was honest, supportive, and caring throughout my experience. He candidly discussed risks and issues and made sure all my questions were answered. During a difficult part of surgery preparation, he was encouraging and supportive. Dr. Awad made sure I knew what to expect for recovery and was quick to respond when issues came up. I'd recommend him for any patient in a similar situation I was in.
