What People Say About Dr. James Nagel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. Nagel, appears to listen to you but does not take into consideration what you are saying. For example, He will continue his protocol dosing levels even though you are not responding well to them. (even though you just finished telling him that you feel worse at the current dose let alone go to a higher dose) He just says tough it out, your body will adapt. I did as he said, I toughed it out for 6 months with each month getting progressively worse. I had several visits with him during that 6 months telling him each time that I was getting worse. He said keep at it. I did and was in the ER in less than 2 weeks after that final visit. My blood pressure was spiking and the symptoms I displayed were that of an impending heart attack. The ER doctor admitted me as a heart attack risk. He was concerned that if I went home it would become a full on heart attack. It took 6 more months to get back to myself.

I was seen in 2008 & at that time he wasn't taking new patients, but he got to the bottom of my problem & got lab tests then referred me to an endocrinologist. I know he is a very capable doctor. I am so grateful to him for helping me. Prior to seeing dr nagel I had seen 8 docs who dismissed my symptoms. We need more like you dr nagel. Thank you!!thank you!!

I came to Dr. Nagel because a friend recommended him. I have suffered with hormonal issues for years!!. I moved out of state and stopped health has slid down hill since!!! I was really wondering if the therapy was helping me, but going off of it made me realize HOW MUCH it had helped! I am starting back on, and looking forward to a better quality of life again! I am so THANKFUL for Quality of Life Medicine and Dr. Nagel!

Charged me $75 for a consult, no empathy, doesn't listen, you're grasping at straws if you see this man. He will happily help you if you have the dough, though! If you're looking for compassion, look elsewhere.
