I had been referred to him by one of his patients after I shared that I would not be able to see my doctor for 3 months. Dr. Awtrey listened to my concerns and immediately put orders in to address my problem. He called me the next day, as promised, to consult me on my results. I would recommend Dr. Awtrey."
