During my first few appointments with Dr Nawaz I found her very helpful and would listen and would not rush me. She had no qualms about refilling existing prescriptions as I was a new patient. The next few appointments I had were drastically different. I am used to getting a lecture about my health problems but I did not expect to be made to feel ashamed for them. She was also reluctant to refill some of my existing prescriptions that she had known I was on during my first visit. I left in tears.

Over the past few years I have observed Dr Nawaz with patients having special needs. Infact, at my first appointment I observed a very calm and respectful interaction. As a retired SpEd teacher, of 32 yrs, who worked with children on the Autism spectrum, of various ages, I recognize it is important to help those who are willing but without knowledge, learn how that individual best responds to new and/ or stressful interactions. Dr Nawaz like many, needed direction. I'm sure it is exhausting, but educating them helps everyone. She is not judgmental, willing to learn and very calm, as well as an excellent physician.
