Dr. Nathanson is arrogant and was not willing to listen to my history. He had poor hygiene as well. He was very judgmental and not willing to listen. He acted like everything was my fault and told me that I am my own worst enemy. I will never see him again and I called all of my referring physicians to let them know of my experience so they will never send him another patient.

I would never recommend him to anyone. When you call them and talk to the nurse you don't hear back from them for a day or two, and he doesn't have enough time for his patiences.
