in Washington, DC |
Absolutely incredible proccess from start to "finish"... I absolutely recommend the entire stall of doctor Narayanan's staff as well as Surgcenter. Without a doubt the best doctor I have ever worked with!!!
Arlington, VA |
Phone calls are never answered and voicemails are rarely returned. She is only in the office to see patients 2-3 days per week. Appointments have to be made nearly a month in advance because she is on vacation an entire week per month and she is hardly in the office. She is about 2-3 hours behind schedule with appointments.. no exaggeration. She is trying to work as a neurosurgeon AND a neurologist and failing horribly at managing time between the 2 tasks.

Based on my first visit with Dr Narayanan, I would recommend her to my family and friends. She seemed knowledgeable genuinely concerned about what she saw on MRI's and written reports.
