Guy can't even tell you whats causing pain. Gives garbage text book answers and fails to even go slightly in depth. Performs a lumbar discectomy and then when it fails acts like it was my own doing just a month after surgery. Won't even offer advice and pretty much leaves it to me to figure it out. Never should have had surgery, but no big deal for him it's just another payday. Unless you have something straight forward and not a compounded problem I would look at another DR.

Dr.Nazar has given me my life back. I had a spinal fusion done in Nov. (9mo) ago. My recovery was great! I did everything he and his team said to do. I have no pain, a very small scar and a backbone made out of titanium! How great is that! I had no quality of life before, living on pills that didn't really help, and I couldn't stand, walk, sit, and lastly couldnt lay in bed to sleep. THANK YOU DR. NAZZAR FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.?? Thanks for giving me my life back!

23 years ago he preformed a cranial facial on my 7 mouth old daughter. Her scull had fussed together and her front of her face was bulging out, and in the back side also was caving in. He preformed the cranial facial and saved her life. She is the love of my life,she don't live with me now lives with her mother now, her phone is her love of her life now. she graduated high school, and was awarded a 3 year scholarship to UOFL Thank You 23 years later. Now I will be going to you for my backprob.

I went to Dr Nazar for a 2nd opinion. He came into the room, admitted he never looked at my records, looked at 1 of my numerous x-rays and rambled about for 15 minutes. He never answered any of our questions We waited over 2 hours to be seen. I was disappointed and hope they don't send me a bill. I DO NOT recommend him to anyone.

He did a wonderful job healing my back problems. I will be going back to him to fix my neck.
