Dr. Awad, as well as his staff were extremely well mannered, respectful and caring. Dr. Awad actually spent time with me, getting to know me, my concerns, my history. My prior experience with doctors in other areas in recent years has been 10 min maximum with an actual doctor, and then handed off to a PA or nurse. My visit to Dr. Awad was the opposite - I found a compassionate, sincere, and extremely knowledgeable physician who seemed to actually care about his patients. All of the care providers we have seen at Baylor- Plano have been likewise. We drive from Argyle (apx 40 miles) and the trips have been so worth the effort. For the first time in many years, we (myself, husband, family) have more confidence in the doctors and staff we have seen and put our care into their hands/hearts/minds. Thank you Dr. Awad, and others at Baylor-Plano.

Dr. Awad is the most caring and informative doctor I have ever experienced. He is totally present when he is with me as his patient. He is encouraging. He is informative. And he gives me great feedback to all my questions. In the past, when I needed to reach someone on a weekend, I actually reached him. He immediately walked to his car to give me his undivided attention. And he diagnosed me carefully and sent in a prescription for me. His intervention resulted in my avoiding what might have been a medical situation that escalated to the Emergency Room but didn't.

Dr Awad listened to concerns, used notes from other care providers, considered my individual situation and developed a plan with me. He spent the right amount of time (did not feel rushed). With all the office staff, you can see / hear the improvements - the greetings were clear and involved me and my husband. Additionally, the interactions were genuine and patient centered - with the right amount of soft skills.
