Dr. Awad, listens to me as a patient. He voices his concerns and addressed my needs. He answered my questions professionally and with honest. He was very careful in regard to distancing. He wore a mask, gloves and washed his hands when he finished the exam. He put on fresh glove to hand my paperwork to me. He requested a return visit. All was done with safety in mind. He has great "bedside" manner.
