Needing 2 hernias fixed I searched for doctors in my area (PB county) and wasn’t comfortable with the ones I met with as many did a lot of other procedures. That’s when I found doctor Azuaje. I felt completely at ease after my iniShow moretial visit and knew he was going to be the one. Having never had surgery before I was very nervous,yet he totally put my mind at ease. It’s been 2 weeks today since surgery and he explained how I would feel and he was spot on. I would and will recommend him and his staf

Jose R • July 03, 2024

I work for a Major US corporation and our lead Medical Advisor recommended Dr. AZUAJE. We live outside of the United States in a country with good medical care, but I wanted to find the best Hernia Surgeon. After reading all of the 5 Star reviews I have to admit that I was thinking no way could it be this good. Well, I did the appointment and surgery all within a week. The whole experience was amazingly good. Great positive team at the Surgery Center and the recovery is going great.

Anonymous A • May 08, 2024

No busques más y has una cita con el Dr. Azuaje para tu cirugía de hernia. Si no tienes seguro y hablas más español que inglés, este es el médico perfecto para ti. Mi mamá fue operada la semana pasada y está sanando perfectamente. El Dr. Azuaje se aseguró de que mi mamá recibiera la mejor atención posible durante y después de su cirugía. Mi mamá no tuvo que esperar mucho tiempo para conseguir una fecha de cirugía y está muy contenta con la operación.
