My doctor prescribed me 400 mg single dose cefixime and 1 g azithromycin single dose 2 weeks apart for a suspected pid. Is this effective?

Maybe not: The Azithromycin will treat chlamydia. Cefixime is no longer recommended for treatment of gonorrhea in the U.S. Because of drug resistance. The recommended treatment here is with a 250 mg injection of ceftriaxone.
