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
