Service

I been seeing Dr Azhar for awhile now and evertime I come the staff and the service is always over and beyond very friendly always willing to help. I love how you get to see Dr Azhar and she spends and gives each patient the time and service they deserve and need of course each patient is different so the amount of time you have to wait may or may not be the same but it’s worth it because she will give you the same service as well :)

A Wonderful Doctor!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Azhar for about 14-15 years. She has been amazing!! She always takes her time with me, listening to my concerns, as well as my accomplishments. She has seen me at my worst, and also at my best. She always makes me feel very comfortable during my appointments. I will be moving soon, and will miss her very much!! I would very highly recommend her to anyone out there who is looking for a great, caring doctor.
