Dr. Sarah Azad, MD

OB-GYN

Professional statement

Our goal is to provide excellent, comprehensive medical care and to have you feel comfortable and secure with the care that you receive. Open communication during our visits and your central role in your own health care will allow that to happen. My job is to address your health concerns and to help you understand your medical diagnoses. I firmly believe that your understanding of your own health is central to discussing treatment options and helping you make the best decision you can for your care. My love of women's health began with the mentorship of my mother, Arifa Azad, MD. Her commitment to her patients and the joy she received from her practice continue to serve as an inspiration and daily reminder of what it means to be an excellent physician. I regularly run into former patients of my mother and am afforded a glimpse into how much impact a good doctor can leave on her patients. Having delivered my first baby while attending medical school at Saint Louis University, my first experience with gynecologic surgery followed shortly thereafter. I completed my residency at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center here in the Bay Area with training in the latest gynecological surgical techniques. I find that I have the best job in the world. I care for women during the various stages of life. I have the honor of delivering babies and performing gynecologic surgeries. There is never a dull moment in my life, I love what I do!

Dr. Azad is fantastic... I trust her opinion and look to her for advice on my health when things don't feel right. Seriously, she is completely approachable and for the first time in decades I feel like I have a gynecologistwho truly cares about my health as a whole and I'm not just another patient.

I've seen Dr. Azad for the last three appointments while under the care of El Camino Women's Group. Every appointment, Dr. Azad is cheerful and friendly. She always asks if I have any questions/concerns or if there are any new developmentsin the course of my pregnancy. As a first time mom, I think she's a great doctor and helps me stay at ease during this whole crazy stage in my life.

It was my first appointment with Dr.Azad. She is very proffessional, knowledgeble, her bedside manners are very good. She did not rush through the appointment, did all the appropriate checks. She took time before the appointment to familiarizeherself with my medical history and dr.Sutherland's notes in my chart. Overall, the experience was relaxed, friendly and straight to the point. I felt I was in good hands.

Goodness...she was so welcoming and engaging. She understood so much of what was going on with my body and super comfortable talking about the options for current and future care. She took time to know me more than just my healthbut my family context too (mom of two teens for example!). It was a huge deal to switch to a new Dr. after having one for 21 years and she made the process amazing and seamless. I'm thrilled. Felt so cared for. Jennifer H.

Always a pleasure to see Dr. Azad. It may seem weird to be happy about seeing your gyno, but I am so glad I found this office. Very professional, but also friendly. I really feel like the office tries to makeyou feel comfortable and are very personable. After having my baby delivered in Nov. 2014 I definitely feel comfortable here. My visit today was to treat a very unwanted female problem and I was able to get a last minute, same day appointment. I had to wait only 10 minutes or so and was shown to a room, which was great for me to hang out in with my baby while we waited. The wait in the room did take a little while, but it was last minute and I overheard that Dr. Teng (the other office dr.) was out of town. Other than that my meeting with Dr. Azad was fast and I had fun doing a quick catch-up with her. She also let me hold my 8.5 month old on my stomach while she checked me. Talk about family friendly!
