Great bedside manner and he took his time to listen to all my symptoms. He listed a plan of action and asked me what I was okay with doing.

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!

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 bevery 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.

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.

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.
