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!
Verified Patient Reviews
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 gynecologist who 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 developments in 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.
Dr. Azad is an amazing person and a great physician. She really takes the time to get to know her patients and tries her best to help them as much as she can. Her staff is kind and quick in responding. I've been seeing her for close to 4 years now, and plan to keep her as my gynecologist for as long as possible!
Satisfied as usual. friendly environment and nice staff. Dr Azad is very knowledgeable and nice. And she answers all my questions.
Dr. Azad is by far my favorite doctor. She is very caring, supportive, and makes you feel like her only patient by spending time with you.
She is a wonderful doctor.
I travel all the way from Oakland (over hour sometimes) just to see Dr Azad. Not only is she one the most attentive and compassionate people I've ever met, but shes gone above and beyond to treat me as if I'm more than just another patient. Couldn't be happier w her and her staff!
Dr Azad is really great. Knowledgeable, transparent, easy to approach. This is my second visit since I moved to California and she will be my OBGYN as long as I stay here.
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 familiarize herself 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.
Very friendly and easy to approach and ask questions. Polite and warm demeanor.

It was a good experience. Dr. Sara Azad gave me enough time to get to the root of the issues I am struggling with. She is very experienced and I hope her diagnosis and treatment work well for me.
I went for my annual check up. Everything went well and it was great seeing Dr Azad again. She is very respectful and professional. Highly recommended.
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 health but 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.
Dr. Azad is very personable, non-judgemental and recommends the best for her patients. Thank you Dr. Azad for being a breath of fresh air when I needed it.
She is a very sweet and friendly doctor.
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 make you 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!
I'm about to have my baby anytime in the next couple of weeks and I definitely could not have had a better doctor. Along with Dr. Teng, they make a wonderful team. I'm so happy I have the best support in the most important moment of my life. I feel happy and safe! Thank you Dr. Azad, you're the best!!
I was very pleased with how thorough Dr. Azad was in answering my questions and concerns at my annual exam. I would definitely recommend her to other women, and was really happy to actually learn a fair amount about my own body from her!
This time I had to wait longer, which is unusual. Regarding the bedside manner, Dr Azad always try her best with gentle hands. And as I'm used to Dr Azad, She is always smiling, talking and her me back which is so relieving and drain any stress out of my body.
She is very kind and caring
Great as always!!
Although I arrived late, Dr Azad was nice enough to put me on her schedule and see me. I didn't wait at all. And as usual, Dr Azad welcomed me with her nice smile and checked my situation with her nice touch.
I adore Dr. Azad. ADORE her! Be prepared to wait beyond your scheduled appointment time but know once she is with you, you'll have her full attention. You're not just a patient to her, she truly cares and spends as much time as you need talking.
Dr Azad is professional. She has a light hand in taking swaps. She answers all my questions and advises me every time I see her. She has a very caring personality.
Absolutely lovely person! No stress, no discomfort, only good things to say about this visit!
Today's visit was very useful. the staff welcomed me and were very nice with me and mt 2 year daughter. Also Dr Azad was very patient with her and let her to be her little assistant! Dr Azad is professional and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and concerns.
As usual, it was a good helpful visit. everyone is nice and answer my questions with a smile.
I just had my first appointment with Dr Azad for an annual and she was wonderful! I felt like I could open up to her immediately due to her warm smile and engaging body language & mannerisms. She spent a lot of time answering my questions and I really appreciated that. I've been looking for a good OB/GYN in the area with no luck, so I felt very encouraged when I met her and knew I found someone who cared and gave me knowledge. I feel especially thankful as a young woman who is starting to put family planning on their radar in the next few years and knowing I have someone amazing to help with that important process. Highly recommend!
Dr. Azad has excellent interpersonal as well as listening skills. She is a competent professional.

Dr Azad is the best OB dr I have ever seen. I am so glad that I switched to her. And she gave me alot of info too!
I was referred to Dr. Azad by a friend and this was my first appointment with her. She was very friendly and made the appointment comfortable. She was very accommodating with answering my questions and a lot of great advice and information. I am so happy to have found her and I look forward to my future appointments.
I waited more than 30 mins because Dr Azad had to leave to help another woman in labor which I really understand and didn't bother me at all. As usual Dr Azad is very nice and professional. I love asking her questions and listening back from her. I love the fact she is organized and keeps me aware of what should I do next and how to take care of myself.
She is an excellent doctor! I love her!
She is amazing. Explaining all the information with lots of patience and smile.

Made my day...!!!!
It was my first time seeing Dr. Azad today and, as the reviews had said, she is great! She's very personable, knowledgable and makes you feel comfortable. I'm very glad that I chose to see Dr. Azad and will continue to do so.
An awesome doctor who listen's to you. She is really concerned about the health of her patients. She is a doctor filled with warmth and compassion.
I loved my visit with Dr. Azad! She was careful, thorough, and descriptive of each step she was doing . She wrote down what was covered in my visit and gave me a list of things I needed to know. She didn't make me feel rushed at all which is rare with doctors nowadays. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Azad was fully present and engaged, read my form before-hand so was already familiar with my situation. She's experienced, informed, and has the best bedside manner of any doctors I've seen.
She is an angel if you dont know her is a time to do Sarah is the great doctor . I am glad to be her patience.
I have been satisfied for the visit. We have discussed prior things before the treatment to be started. This is my first doctor who discussed about the treatment. With my previous doctors it was always they recommended other specialists which is of know use.
pleasant as always. Couldn't be better.
She is the BEST !!!
She lived up to the expectations I had after checking the reviews online.
Dr.Sara Azad is an amazingly friendly doctor I have ever seen. She is very good in giving each detail at the appropriate time. I am in my third trimester with my second child. She always gives high confidence after every visit. All the questions asked will definitely be answered by her with lot of patience even though some may be very silly questions. I highly highly recommend her for any expectant mother. God bless her for the service she is providing.
Dr. Azad is very knowledgeable and update to date on new research and she has great bed-side manner which both are very important to me. She was referred to me by my doctor when I was pregnant with my twin boys and am very grateful to the doctor for the recommendation.
I have been Dr Azad's' patient now for 4 years and highly recommend her. I would never switch to another doc for as long Dr Azad accepts my insurance. She is patient and takes time to get to know you... I never feel rushed with Dr Azad. Each visit feels like you leave after chatting with a friend. She has helped me through a difficult and emotionally painful miscarriage and a happy, healthy pregnancy and I feel lucky to have had her by me for both. She rocks!!
Dr.Azad is the best. She makes us comfortable and relates to us. After the appointment I always feel good.
Excellent bedside manner. Very informative and thorough.
Dr Sarah Azad is the best doctor I've seen in the whole world.. I would recommend this doc to all my family and friends.. I luv my doctor.. Jazakallahu khair Dr Sarah Azad for making me your patient..
No Dr. ever gave good long time to me to deal with my health problems though having good reviews on yelp. I had my first visit with her and I am deeply thankful to her for answering my queries and taking care of petty details of my health to be dealt in a perfect way.Thanks to Allah for giving me the opportunity to meet the really caring doctor!
This was my first visit. Dr. Azad was very thorough and reviewed my previous reports so as to get to know my case. She was patient and very knowledgeable and gave me great advice and suggestions on how to maintain my health moving forward.
Dr. Azad is great! Very kind and easy to talk to. She's very responsive to questions and followed up to see how I was feeling after my visit. I got back from a trip and needed a prescription called in urgently. She immediately followed through even though she was already on her way out the door for the day.
Dr. Azad is warm, friendly and never rushes an appointment. I've been seeing her since early 2013 and she has helped me successfully conceive; we're now expecting our first baby. I appreciate her excellent care and no-nonsense, practical advice, all which made my pregnancy stress-free. I've always left her appointments assured, satisfied and more educated than when I come in. Highly recommended!
She is really warm and knows how to comfort the patient. It's really easy to talk to and she give you all the time you need to ask her questions. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Sara Azad is very friendly. Always, make us feel safe during each visit with her kind words. She always maintain high professionalism. I am so blessed to have a doctor like this!! I will highly recommend her for expecting mothers.
If you want to see a great doctor, then go to Dr. Azad. She's excellent and always makes you feel comfortable. The admin staff is a little cold (i.e. making you feel bad for asking questions, talking in other languages in front of you), but Dr. Azad herself is wonderful and worth going to if you just want to see an excellent doctor.
Dr. Azad is so very personable and I haven't enjoyed going to an OBGYN before. She's got a fantastic bedside manner and really takes the time to make sure all your questions are answered.
Love dr Azad she's the best

Dr. Azad is fantastic... I'm so glad she was recommended to me. I found my new doctor after six years of not going to one!
I absolutely loved Dr Azad. At first I was a bit flustered with the wait time, and I wasn't impressed with the front desk staff that helped me at all, but as soon as I was taken back and got to meet with Dr Azad (this was my first appointment) I was thrilled with my experience. Like other reviewers, I found Dr. Azad to be COMPLETELY attentive, willing to take any amount of time I needed or wanted, and made me feel perfectly normal and at ease during the appointment. I found myself wishing she was my doctor for everything! :)
Like most other people, I'm not a fan of going to the doctor. My visit with Dr. Azad was by far the most pleasant experience with a medical professional I've ever had. Dr. Azad was kind, caring, and even made me laugh. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, she is absolutely fantastic.
Dr. Azad is great. She is kind, efficient, and very knowledgable. Highly recommend.
I really liked it. She is super nice and warm and makes you feel comfortable.
The front staff was helpful and very nice, despite my not knowing how to fill anything out. I was able to be seen right away and even have more done than I had scheduled. Dr. Azad also had perhaps the best bedside manner that I've ever encountered. I will highly recommend her to my friends.
Amazing is an understatement. Thank you for making me feel comfortable and confident!
I cannot say how fortunate I am to have found Dr. Azad. She embodies all of the qualities I look for in a medical professional; highly knowledgeable, warm, kind, and caring. She has gotten to know me as a person and has offered options for my medical needs that fit my holistic views of care. I trust her implicitly with all of my needs as a "mature" woman. She is absolutely the best!
Dr. Azad is very attentive and caring. As someone who was extremely anxious during her entire pregnancy, she knew exactly how to quell my worries. She's a great doctor.
I have gone to several doctors. Looking for that right one. Sarah was referred to me by another patient of her's. She is very informative and explains everything to you. She really takes the time for her patient. I would recommend her to any one.
Love her! She delivered both my daughters.
She is very nice and kind doc. Very knowledgeable, take good care of patient's concerns, give tips and suggestions. I am definitely going back for my next baby birth.

I found Dr. Azad very friendly. She listened to all my problems very patiently and counselled me in a way that took all my fears away. I would strongly recommend her.
I'm very happy and grateful because I've visited this most wonderful doctor. I've been very tense before i going forth but then i felt comfortable alot after it. Despite that long-distanceme between me and the hospital because I live in San Leandro to but it's actually worth it. Thank you very much

Sarah is very caring and easy going. She is a good listener and would give you related information without asking. The best thing about her is her smile. Makes me feel comfortable all the time.
I had a very pleasant experience .
Dr. Azad carefully reviewed my records and made sound recommendations, both long and short-term regarding my health. She cited recent research and specifically related it to my history. I carefully shopped for a doctor I thought would meet my needs here in California, as I left an outstanding doctor in New York. Dr. Azad is excellent and I feel fortunate that I was able to find her.
Dr.Azad is very professional and a wonderful doctor! I would recommend her to any
She is so friendly. Definitely has the knowledge. And she likes to hear from the patient first. I highly recommend her.
My schedule had been pushed back by 30min since she had a surgery. Although 30min delay, she never rushed my examination and listen to my concern very well and wrote down everything what she said for me. She is very professional and knowledgeable.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Azad and it was a great visit. She was extremely easy to talk to and I immediately felt very comfortable with her. She was efficient but did not make me feel rushed. She seems extremely competent and gave me practical advice on managing my health, but didn't nag, lecture, or talk down at me. Looking forward to being in her care for many years to come!
Dr. Sarah is a really nice doctor! She listens to you and explains everything in detail, unlike some other doctors who are always in a hurry to get over with the appointment!
Professional, smart and very warm. I really liked her.
Dr. Sarah Azad is very pleasant. She is very easy to open up to. Her interest in you as a patient is sincere. I normally dread visiting the Doc, but this is the first time where I felt like having the "annual" check up isn't so dreadful.
Dr. Azad was kind, clear, high spirited and straight to the point. My wife will definitely continue with Dr. Azad.

My visit was wonderful. The office is beautiful, the staff are friendly, and Dr. Azad really took her time with me. She listened to me explain my problem, she clearly explained to me her plans for testing. And she even took the time to talk about my diet. Except for the time I had to wait to see her (about 30 min), it was one of my better doctor visits.
She is realy professional and she is one of the best Dr. that I had visited. You don't need to visit her more than once to know that about her.

She managed to be both serious and friendly, which was exactly what I needed. I would definitely recommend her.
