Dr. Nagar is a wonderful, caring doctor. When I started having migraines and migraine symptoms she was very thorough and listened to all of my symptoms and what I had to say. She ran many tests to check my heart, brain and eyes. Instead of just prescribing me medications she referred me to physical therapy which was SO HELPFUL in dealing with my symptoms. Upon my follow up visit, she took the time to go over the results of the tests and even showed me results from my MRI, CT, echocardiogram etc.. I cannot recommend her enough! She is a quality doctor and just so kind and understanding.

Dr. Nagar is extremely trustworthy and truly cares about her patients. She is the first doctor to reassure me what has been going on is not in my head. I have heard many excuses in the past. Dr. Nagar will spend all the time you need and answer any questions you have. After a year of my body betraying me, I have faith in Dr. Nagar. I have had a few changes to my insurance and have not had any problems working with Dr. Nagar’s team. I highly recommend Dr. Nagar! I love her kindness and caring.

My insurance company denied an MRI she ordered. I waited 3 weeks. I called my insurance company and they had no record of her resubmitting the request. Prior to this she ordered MRI, x-ray and blood tests and said she would call me back that day. I did the x-ray and blood tests that day but had to schedule the MRI (which ended up being denied by my insurance co). She did not call me. After one week I emailed her and told her the above and she still did not call me.Had to wait till my next appt

I had a vertebral artery dissection in 2011 and I saw Dr. Nagar at the hospital. She was by far the best doctor that I saw through this entire experience. She was extremely knowledgeable, caring and able to put into complicated explanations into language I could understand. She has always dedicated the time to make sure I understand what is going on and what to expect. I could not be more happy with my experiences with Dr. Nagar.
