Sam Awan, MD

Dr. Sam Awan earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Ill. He earned a Doctor of Medicine and completed his internship at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. His dermatology residency was completed at the University of Connecticut in Farmington, CT where he served as chief resident during his final year. During his time at the University of Connecticut, Dr. Awan trained under world leaders in psoriasis and skin cancer. He lectures regularly to dermatologists and other physicians, serves as a reviewer for leading peer-reviewed journals, and presents at local and national dermatology conferences.

Dr. Awan looks forward to working with patients in the McKinney office. “The variety of dermatology makes every day new and exciting,” he says. “A typical day involves skin cancer screenings, aesthetic consultations, surgical procedures and the management of complex rashes that patients have lived with for years. The best part of the job is developing lasting relationships with patients and families from all backgrounds and walks of life.”

He special interests include the detection and prevention of skin cancer, treating acne and psoriasis, and cosmetic dermatology. He takes particular interest in managing skin rashes from emerging cancer therapies.

“In dermatology, we’re able to make very concrete changes in people’s lives,” Dr. Awan says. “It may be as simple as a bit of filler to boost someone’s confidence or as critical as the early detection and removal of a skin cancer. Establishing care with a local dermatologist early on is an essential step for anyone interested in protecting their skin health.”

Dr. Awan is an avid sports fan and spends time playing basketball, biking, and traveling. In his spare time, he enjoys writing short stories and novels.

What Our Patients Say

Sam Awan, MD
5 Stars  My teenage daughter recently saw this provider. I was very impressed with the discussion he had with her and myself regarding her treatment options. He took a great deal of time to ensure we understood the diagnosis and answered all questions. My daughter is usually not comfortable with male physicians. Dr. Awan’s conversational techniques made her at ease, and she was comfortable discussing her healthcare needs with him and his staff. –

5 Stars  Dr. Awan explained us our issues very comprehensively, and was bang on with his diagnosis. He had wonderful bedside manner and patiently answered all our questions. The wait time in the office was short. We came in with a toddler, and the play area in the waiting room kept him sufficiently entertained until we were called inside. –
