I had a degenerated upper spine disc which caused me extreme pain. Dr. Nazar operated and took away the pain immediately. He is a very professional, great surgeon and physician. I have referred him to several of my friends with spine problems.

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....more
