in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr Nizar explains everything in detail, so that you can understand and he take the time to answer all your questions he's not like other Dr's that are in a hurry to go to the next patient. His staff is kind and friendly.
in Bakersfield, Cs |
I was with Dr. Nizar as a patient for approximately five years the primary reason was because he had a really good physicians assistant who left as he was not treated well according to that person eventually left and was replaced by another good PA who eventually left and now they have a PA that does not strike me as the best this doctor is unconcerned uncaring and in my opinion is not a good doctor there have been several instances where I needed to get state disability.
