She is an amazing physician! Would recommend without hesitation. It is rare to find someone so compassionate.
in Detroit, MI |
She cured my vertigo and I got my life back. Can't thank her enough.
in Flat Rock, MI |
Dr. Naumann is a fantastic doctor! Not only does she have impressive expertise, she also has excellent communication skills. She is very personable and takes as much time as needed to take care of her patients. My daughter has special needs and some complex medical issues. Dr. Naumann has greatly improved the quality of my daughter's life. It is true that the office environment at Harper Hospital may be fair but if you are looking for a top notch doctor, Dr. Naumann is the best!

Dr. Naumann did surgery on my ear and I am glad I found her.

We got to the DMC about 10 minutes before our appointment, and was met by an incredibly rude receptionist. After waiting for almost an hour, we finally were taken back where an incompetent nurse measured my toddler, but first had to fight with the measuring stick and hit my daughter in the head with it. He then took us to ANOTHER waiting room where we waited another 10 minutes, and now are seated in the room waiting going on 15 minutes. Never again will I return here.

This was for my appt. with her at DMC in Detroit. It was for 2PM, I arrived at 1:45 and had another appt. in the same building for 3:30PM. I waited and waited and waited. At 3:28 I got up and told the receptionist that I had another appt. and had been there for an hour and 45 minutes and had never even seen a doctor! She just shrugged her shoulders, was very rude, and asked if I wanted to make another appt.! Um, yeah, what do you think? Might be a good dr., I don't know, never saw her!
