I was very nervous about my visit but he was very thorough and assessed my situation appropriately. .overall I was very pleased
Dr. Awar took his time going over my medical history, asking questions and giving me the time to share my experiences and how I was feeling. He listened and offered up his thoughts. We made a plan. He seems to be very knowledgeable and has a softspokenness about him. He wants to be thorough before making any diagnosis, so I am happy to go through the testing he recommends. Great doctor.
Cared for patient, confident in his work.
Dr, Awar was excellent. He was reassuring and informative. This is the 1st time ever that I've experienced a cardiologist actually take the time out to monitor a Ultrasound as it was being performed on me. Kudos to Dr. Awar. I Highly Recommend.
Dr. Awar is a fantastic cardiologist! He has been the only one to question why I have high blood pressure and wants to get to the root of the problem, rather than just handing me some medication and say hope this fixes it! I highly recommend him to everyone!
The Doctor has a great "bedside" manner. He is easy to talk to and wasn't in a rush. I'm very happy with the whole experience and I will be using him going forward. Also his nurse is a great asset, great personality and helpful.
