Dr. Nahab exhibits compassion and empathy at every visit. He is a great listener and addresses every concern. As a movement disorder specialist, he sets the bar high with his knowledge and expertise. How blessed I’ve been to call him my MDS - a very kind, very special physician and person.

Dr. Nahab was a incredible sharp, caring Dr,with amazing bedside manners! I was very concerned with my symptoms, he said; don't worry we are in this together; and I could tell he was sincere. I was in the medical device industry for approx. 25 years and have dealt with hundreds of Dr.'s. I feel extremely blessed to have found him. He spends as much time with you as you desire, and calls you right back if you have a concern. He's amazing! One of the best Docs I've ever met. Highly recommend him
