What Patients are Saying About Dr. Charles J. Azzam, MD

  • "Fantastic person and surgeon. He performed a decompressive lumbar laminectomy and lumbar fusion with instrumentation and stabilization on me in early August of 2016. From the time I awoke from surgery till now I have not suffered one minute of sciatic pain which prior to surgery had me unable to walk without assistance. I am back on the golf course now and am feeling fantastic. I cannot recommend Dr. Azzam any more highly. Thank you Dr. Azzam"
