I had never had a major surgery before, so he sat me down and walked through each step to make sure I knew exactly what was going to be happening. He was super personable and very helpful.

Dr. Nawab performed a partial knee replacement for me in March of 2018. Dr. Nawab is kind, patient, and most of all competent. He took as much time as I needed to ask questions. I never felt rushed. I would highly recommend Dr. Nawab to anyone.
