I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
