I travel over two hours away just to ensure I still receive care from Dr. Awais. He is the most knowledgeable, compassionate, and excellent doctor one could ask for. I've been seeing him as a patient since 2005. I wouldn't go elsewhere. I cannot say enough positives about him. I trust him with my ongoing health issues; he has helped me tremendously for the past 12 years.
