Dr. Solomon Azouz's Education and Certifications
Dr. Azouz provided emergency care for me for a sharp object that had penetrated deep into one of my fingers. He excised the object with exceptional care, not even leaving a scar. He also showed tremendous patient care, having to treat me after office hours due to the pain I was in. He always puts the patient first and I have complete trust in him.
