Dr. Awais and his entire staff are very caring, attentive and professional. I would highly recommend him and his practice to anyone needing his type of care.

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.

Dr. Awais was superb to deal with. He always made me feel very comfortable. He listened carefully and explained everything thoroughly. He always treated me as if I were his most important patient and never made me feel rushed. From the beginning I had a great deal of confidence in Dr. Awais. I am very pleased that I selected Dr. Awais to perform my surgery. Highly recommend.

Dr. Awais was knowledgeable, intelligent, pleasant,and compassionate. He listened to my concerns. He did not speak "down" to me. he was not arrogant. I can't believe he works for UPMC. UPMC is fortunate to have this fine provider!

I was very pleased with Dr. Awais and his care and concern. I am dealing with something new and still have many questions and concerns. Dr. Awais was patient and told me that I could call with any questions.
