This doctor is all about money and does not care about people! His staff is exceptionally rude! I had a seizure at work and ended up in the ER. The ER Dr. originally told me was going to give me a prescription for anti-seizure medication for my own safety. When I was discharged, he said he was uncomfortable letting me go w/o anti-seizure medication, but that Dr. Awad had insisted on seeing me w/o medicine and promised he would get me in within a couple days. That was a Wed, the soonest he could get me in was on Mon, and the obnoxious staff made a big deal about how he was doing me a ""favor."" I took off work to be there, and got a phone call in the parking lot mere minutes before my appt from his rude office manager telling me that my appt was cancelled and that I couldn't be upset because he was trying to do me a ""favor.""
So I took Thurs morning off too, and upon arrival, found out the limited temporary insurance I have maxes out at $2000, which was eaten up by the ER. They wouldn't see me. I tried calling the ER doctor back, but the nurse wouldn't let me speak to him saying that it is policy that once a patient is discharged, they won't call in a prescription, and that I'd have to be readmitted to the hospital, which I now cannot do.
Please please please do not see this doctor. He does not care about people, just your money. If I have another seizure and get injured (or worse, fall down a stairwell and die) because I can't get medicine to protect myself, then that is on his head. This is not my first, so it is not unlikely that I will have another. This doctor should have his medical license revoked.
