August 27, 2015

Given the seriousness of my illness (tumor on left lung which is cancerous) and which appeared just recently and also the fact that my father passed two years ago from lung cancer/pulmonary fibrosis I was extremely nervous. Dr. Awais and his staff took their time, explained everything to me and assured me that I could call at any time with questions. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Awais and his staff and am confident I will receive the best care from them.
