Dr Nayar in 2009 performed a lower left lobectomy after being diagnosed with lung cancer. After discussing options I decided not to do radiology or chemo. I was told by Oncologist's my choice would lead to an early death. May 1st 2016 I will retired after 21 years at Rutgers University. Dr Nayar is an amazingly honest surgeon which helped my wife an I to decline radiology and chemo therapy. I will always be grateful to a great man
