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.
