I live in Sierra Vista and have not been happy with the health care service in the area. Always felt like I was just an insurance claim. So when a friend recommended Vail Medical Center, I had to give them a try. I tell you what, I will gladly drive the 1 to 1.5 hours it takes to get there. The staff is absolutely the friendless people I have ever had the chance to deal with in the health care industry. I am currently seeing Samreen to help with some weight loss and she is wonderful. You can tell that she truly cares about her patients. She has helped me lose weight and I couldn’t be happier with my experience at Vail Medical Center. I would highly recommend VMC.Dave B.
Dr. Azam is wonderful. but—i wanted to talk about his staff right now. they are the BEST —every one of them. they help me with my needs as if they were my best friends !!! really interested, concerned, and warm. and all this time they are quite professional. i’ve never met such a warm, shining bunch of people !!!!Suzanne
Everything was excellent from the cleanliness of the facility to the staff’s conduct. Dr. Azam and Samreen explained everything very well on how to start my program and what I need to do once I achieve my goal. I trust the clinic, it’s products and programs.Joe S.
Best place ever, great staff, Dr Azam cares alot about his patients, wonderful staff, Samreen is a great,awesome counselor in weight loss, very professional.Sharon
Dr. Azam is a GREAT doctor. He is caring and really takes his time to listen to you. He’s like that old country doctor. When my husband died, he took time out of his schedule to call me. Now what doctor today would do that? His staff is wonderful, always ready to help you with a smile.
I think his practice is the best in the southwest area!
Stop me if I start gushing too much….I came here with low expectations actually…I had recently relocated to the area and needed a General Practicioner, and settled on one I was told was awesome. Long story short, not awesome. Sent me (a guy) for a mammogram when I told them all I had was a strained muscle. Every symptom I had they diagnosed as potential cancer. I was stressing. Not good.
Then I came across Vail Internal. I made an appointment for a new patient and was told I had to see the Nurse Practioner first. “Here we go again” I thought, and scheduled the appointment.
When I arrived, everyone was so NICE!! Made me feel comfortable. Asked what I wanted to be called, and then I went to see the Nurse Practioner, Julie Easterday. She seemed nice as well, but does she know her stuff??
HELL YEAH SHE DOES!!! Julie had me healthy and treated in no time. I felt good for the first time in years!! So, I figured I’d try their weight loss doc. Hopefully they weren’t just a salesperson for some product, and new what they were talking about…
HELL YEAH SHE DID!! Samreen was friendly, encouraging, and new what she was talking about. She listened to ME and together we devised my weight loss plan based on my needs and abilities and LIKES!!!! Man, you just don’t know how excited I get every time I have an appointment! This place rocks!!!
A few weeks ago, a friend at work asked me which clinic I went to, and when I said Vail Internal, another coworker asked if I saw Julie…then we proceeded to tell each other how much we LOVE Vail Internal Medicine.
Quick note…earlier reviews mentioned a Nurse Practioner that wasn’t very good. I asked Julie about it, and she informed me she was hired to replace the poorly reviews NP. I’m happier than I’ve ever been with a doctor.
And in conclusion, when I left my appointment today, I got a hug. A freaking HUG!!! How awesome!!! Now, hurry along and make YOUR appointment….you will NOT be disappointed!!!!Moe M.
I had been looking for a Primary Care Physician who would take the time to listen to my health concerns and I am happy my friend told me about Vail Medical and Weightloss. The whole team at is a pleasure to work with. I have felt very supported and encouraged to take the steps I needed to in order to overcome barriers to get my health in order as well as lose weight. Thank you Vail Medical and Weightloss!Katherine W.
I came here 05/08/2017. My Sister and Brother-In-Law go here for All their Appointments because their Primary Care Is with Dr. Azam. He is great and the Staff is Friendly, Caring And Considerate Of Their Patients. They Are Professionals and Excellent Service. Would surely Recommend this Place to Families And Friends. Thank You for making Our Day
Samreen, Dr Azam and the staff are all amazing, caring individuals. I’ve been going to the practice for weight loss. I look forward to every visit. Samreen is so encouraging and supportive. She always greets me with a smile and answers any questions I may have. I’m definitely thankful for all of them and happy they are part of my weight loss journey.Amy V.
Samreen, Dr. Azam and the staff are so awesome… I went there to lose weight and that is exactly what I am doing! Not only do I get encouragement and questions answered about my health… I got a great analogy that I now live by. Eating like a caveman! I will let Samreen explain that one lol. I feel great, I look great and I know I will be a part of Vail Medical Center for a long time!Beverly H.
I was a 72 year old cancer and stroke survivor with health issues, no energy and weighing 180 plus pounds. The last thing I needed was another diet because I lost and gained back and failed on so many. Then, I met Dr. Azam and Samreen! Dr. Azam talked to me about my health and at this point my weight was just a number! So I quit saying I weigh ___________lbs. I’d say I feel great! After addressing my health issues, I was ready to start changing my life. Within the first few months my results were phenomenal. I was losing weight and doing things I couldn’t do for years. With Dr. Azam’s guidance, I was able to do a new lifestyle, lose weight and get my life back. I look forward to each new day and here’s why:
I went from 180+ to 144.8 And dropped 5 sizes and still improving and love every minute and day! Try the program, you’ll be amazed at all the benefits you’ll get from it, beyond weight loss. If I could do it, anyone can. Thanks to Dr. Azam, Samreen and staff for taking me in and giving me health, happiness and a new body. I don’t hide anymore. You’ll be so glad you’ve become a pair of their family; that’s how they treat you. Don’t put it off like I did. It’s so easy once you start!! You can do it!Ruth M.
I lost 60 lbs and changed my lifestyle. Dr. Azam and his staff are awesome and very helpful.B.D.
Just love this place and the staff!Maureen C.
Me and my wife were both having issues with our health. We are both in our 40’s and we were happy with our lives until our weight became an issue and we had to make a change. Dr Azam and his wife were very understanding about our predicament and set us on a path to start losing weight. We started in August of last year and we are 6 months into our treatment plan. I am very happy with the results that my wife and I have made and would recommend their plan to anyone struggling to lose excess weight and get their life back on track. Thanks Mrs. Azam see you next month!Robert H.
Vail Medical Center is a top-notched medical facility. Thank you for providing an amazing experience!Brian T.
The front desk staff is always nice and friendly. A big perk is that they have staff to draw blood on site. I rarely have to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be seen. Whenever I call to leave a message, the staff is professional and I always hear back from them on the same day or at the date and time I am told they will get back to me. My PA is patient with me and listens to everything I have to say. I have had some crazy health issues lately and she has competently helped me through them. I am very satisfied with the office. They are all very professional.Jody H.
Amazing staff who truly care about the whole individual. Dr. Azam is an amazing doctor and human being who thrives on making his clients feel whole so is Samreen and her staff are highly trained to help individuals to achieve weight loss via proper counseling and nutrition and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I trust this clinic with my life as they have come through for me many times.Mona K.
Samreen has helped me tremendously in the process of loosing weight. She really cares about the person and is willing to take as much time as you need to understand everything. She talks to you, not at you like most medical professionals. I can also say that I have never met a friendlier medical office in my life. Everyone at Vail Medical Center has been very friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome.Dayna B.
Great news! I’m losing weight and feeling better, thanks to the staff .
I enjoyed the process and not getting crazy about giving up my carbs or sugars.
This actually turned out great, ” I’m eating healthy ” and no withdrawals at all.
The other good side to this is not spending $$on fast food.
9/26: office visit….. Had a B12 shot , feeling good, didn’t check my weight because next week ” BIG LOSE”
10/3: weigh in day, lost 9 lbs, just ate right and followed a simple meal plan.Marc G
My mom and i are patients here and have been for awhile…my mom is 79 and i am 57…we have had several different primary care drs who ended up moving or retired…we have NEVER had such a good feeling walking into the door of a drs office! Everyone who works at this place is so sweet and nice and make you feel like you are special and they care about you! I also have done the HCG and i lost over 20lbs for my wedding this month and still dropping the weight without the HCG…I also get the lippo and the b12 shot every two weeks and get the protein bars and energy bars which help a lot! Anything more to say about this place? I could go on and on but just want everyone to know this is THE BEST PLACE i have ever been to..thanks to you all at this facility you make it the BEST!!!Leanne K
Vail Medical Center’s Age Management Program and Bio-identical Hormone Therapy have profoundly changed my life! When I shared with Dr. Azam how I had been trying for so long to help myself feel better through the use of various therapies, medications, and other healthful activities, he offered me a survey, which I completed right then, and the results showed many signs of hormone imbalance. Dr. Azam asked if I was taking the Hormone Replacement Therapy being prescribed by my gynecologist and he asked if any doctor had ever tested my hormone levels. Yes, I’ve taken my prescription faithfully for the past decade, and no, I was never tested or followed up with, other than the gyn asking if my hot flashes were under control.
Dr. Azam explained his Age Management Program of on-going hormone testing and the creation of an individualized bio-identical hormone, to be re-evaluated at regular intervals. I believed the HRT I had been on for years was bio-identical…turns out it’s still a synthetic version created in a lab; and at best, it’s a hit-or-miss system of prescribing standard doses of hormones when a post-menopausal woman complains of obvious symptoms, like hot flashes or night sweats. Those obvious symptoms were being somewhat relieved with the pharmaceutical hormones, but the less obvious symptoms of my increasing depression and feelings of hopelessness about going on in life, were only being treated by mental health providers who couldn’t seem to help me make a difference. In my desperation, I talked to Dr. Azam, shedding tears in his office, and at that moment it was obvious that he was the first professional or medical person to actually “see me!” When I shared that sentiment with him, his response was, “That’s because I look at the whole person.” That’s what is so desperately missing from our medical “care” system…we are rarely seen as “whole people,” unless we go outside of the traditional medical system, and that is often unaffordable for those of us who depend upon our medical insurance for coverage.
So, with minimal effort, and at minimal cost, I’ve now been on Natural, Bio-identical Hormone Therapy for two months. My body has changed in wonderful ways, my mind is clear and focused, and the spirit for life that I thought I had lost forever, has returned with years of life left to enjoy!! So grateful for this one-in-a-million doctor, Syed Azam, M.D., who chose to locate himself here in our midst, and sooo grateful that I found him before it was too late. It is no exaggeration when I say that Dr. Azam saved my life!!
Thank you, as well, to all of the professional, courteous, and helpful staff who consistently go above and beyond to make a visit to Vail Medical Center and Weight Loss a pleasant experience! You are all the best!!Connie Krug
Dr. Azam has helped me improve my health and loose weight. A doctor that actually cares about your well being is hard to find.Dennis C.
I absolutely love the staff!! I am very happy I made this call and went in! The price for the weight loss help is very reasonable for me! I hope that the results will be AMAZING so I can add a review of how effective it is with with maintaining the diet recommended….Jana T.
After having a very rough beginning to the year with a great loss to our family I was very depressed and had a lot of emotional stress eating. The staff at vail medical has been incredible with the support and knowledge to help me get back on track and stay there with a healthy lifestyle. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needed any help.Amy A.
Super friendly Staff and really helpful and Awesome!! The appointment process is easy and flexible. They are extremely supportive and take their time with you. My first month on the program I lost 15 pounds!! I’m liking the result so fare, and moved forward to my 2nd round to reach my goals can not wait!! Mrs. Samreen & Dr. Azam along with there team are amazing!! They have a smile on their face and professional, sincere and very knowledgeable. I love knowing that there here to help me to achieve my goals, can’t wait to see the end result. The programs are good, the diets are straight forward and easy to follow, and the staff have always answered whatever questions I’ve had in a concise and straight forward manner.
That being said, this is a weight loss clinic and weight loss takes work. Plus the fact this is a medical center. Here to help me with my health issues along side me through the process.
These guys make it more manageable but they can’t do it for you. You’ll only get out what you put in.Shawnee H.
I’m so glad I found this practice! I was nervous about going to my first appointment because I’ve put on so much weight, but my first phone call to just make the appointment put me at ease. The front desk staff are very friendly and welcoming. Ms. Samreen, along with Dr. Azam, are both professional, sincere, and knowledgeable. The nurses and assistants were also friendly and efficient. I can’t express enough how pleased I am. I’ll definitely be a long term patient!Melissa S.
