Omar E. Awad, M.D., F.A.C.S.

"Some people talk about how many surgeries they’ve done and one thing I tell my patients is that the one that I’m doing at that time is the most important one. I always try to do the best job that I possibly can so I can deliver beyond what the patient expects."

Omar E. Awad, M.D., F.A.C.S.
