We met Dr. Nassiry in the intensive care unit. Our loved one was critically ill and Dr. Nassiry displays no compassion or interest. He's completely detached from the patient and the family. When pressed for questions, he appears to be making things up as he goes along. it felt like he'd already written off our loved one for dead, and therefore his care really didn't matter. The problem is you are stuck with Nassiry if you go to Queen of the Valley hospital. You can't choose your "hospitalist".
Dr. Thurber was amazing. I have to go to Emergency very often because of a chronic medical condition. He was very knowledgeable about my medical problems (very uncommon actually), compassionate, and spent more time with me than any other emergency physician ever. He's absolutely the best I've ever dealt with.
