in Albuquerque, NM |
I am a fairly new patient. I spoke to Lauren and Bill several times. They were both very kind and helpful. i had to change my appt. at least 2-3x because my move date kept changing. Omg, Lauren was soo sweet every time. My first appt. lasted an hour, at least, while Dr. Nairn reviewed my health issues. His PA is extremely caring. I believe he only accepts presbyterian. He is pricey, even for a specialist but it's a small office and lol, what isn't expensive today. My remedy, switch ins. :)

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.
