Have been going to Dr Awad for several years now and have recommended him several times as well. He listens and actually takes what you tell him into consideration when making his diagnosis rather than just looking at a bunch of numbers from testsHe is extremely personable and spends an inordinate amount of time with you. unfortunately I have lots of doctors. Dr Awad is one of the best, I have lots to compare against!

Dr Omar Awad has given me the best care for my COPD and continues to monitor my condition with routine follow up checks. This doctor is the most efficient caring doctor I have ever had. I wish he was in all the specialty fields as he goes out of his way to be sure you know how you are progressing and does it in such a way that gives you the incentive to keep moving forward in exercising and developing good habits to prolong your good health. He takes a personal interest in your pulmonary health.
