I have been seeing Dr Aziz since 2003. He has always had an excellent bedside manner. He has gone above and beyond in his medical treatment. I have had surgery done by Dr Aziz. His post operative care was exceptional & his diagnosis accurate. Dr Aziz is an oral surgeon I would highly recommend to anyone needing any type of oral or surgical treatment. In fact I had been misdiagnosed by 2 dentists before seeing Dr Aziz. And he is responsible for making a correct diagnosis and making it possible for me to eat solid food.
