Dr Nagib was tge best in his field at ine time, just ask him. He performed surgery on me that has left me with permanent paralysis. He has never once apologized or taken responsibilty. He is getting old and should retire for the sake of future patients.

Dr. Nagib would get zero stars, if that was an option. I also heard he was a great neurosurgeon. I don't think so! He's refused to see me in 2014, 2015 and again now, after being referred to him each time. And each time, he would NOT give me a reason why he wouldn't see me. I have Ehlers-Danlos...more
