Dr Awais is excellent. He listens and talks to you as if you are a valued member of the family. My entire family has met him and respect him as a doctor and as a person. After my procedures they were amazed at how he took time to answer questions and explain my situation and did not rush away. Anytime I needed to have a follow up appt a additional dilalation. The staff has been outstanding. Truly one of the best practices i have seen and dealt with.

November 24, 2015

I hope nothing with doctor Awais team ever changes they are great. The fact I am traveling back and forth from ft. Myers florida to see him should tell you everything.
