Professional!Superb!Brilliant!!! These are just a few words that can describe the care i received by Dr. Awais and his staff. I cannot say enough good things about my recent surgery and care given by Dr. Awais. UPMC should be so proud that they have someone as brilliant and kind as Dr. Awais working for them. His staff is so professional and so organized. His office run like a well oiled machine. My family and I are so grateful for the care and expertise that he provided during my recent hospital stay. We cannot say thank you enough!!!

when the doctor left the room I didn't know if I should leave or if I was to wait for prescriptions etc. I had to go out and ask the assistant who said someone would call me today about scheduling tests but no one has called me.
