    The receptionist, Lauren, was incredibly rude. Dr. Nairm was in the room for 10 minutes. He didn't examine me and charged me $300.

    I have gone to Dr. Narin for many many years. He has always been compassionate and concerned with my pain issues and has tried to help me as much as anyone could. He has answered any questions I have and listens to any alternative medicine solutions I brought to him.
