My husband had an appointment today his first one for pulmonary fibrosis we got back come to find out he wasn’t seeing the dr he was seeing a nurse practitioner who has 3 years experience working under dr najjar ok they said my husband would not be seeing the dr at all that dr najjar only comes in on Tuesday and Thursday for 1 hour. Are you kidding me. I said no I will not put the life of my husband in the hands of a nurse practitioner who has worked under a Dr she sees 2 hours a week, how much can she learn in 2 hours a week. So I got our copay back and we left. I can understand a nurse practitioner working with a dr who Is there so if the patient needs answers they can get them from someone with more than 3 years experience 2 hours a week. I’m sure she’s a good nurse but when it comes to lung disease that has no cure a person needs a Dr with experience that is up to date on treatments and new medication.

No patient care at all!!! The doctor doesn't even provide healthcare to his employees! Only cares about money ! They don't even have a registered sleep tech to do the sleep studies! High turnover in employees , which is due to management! Very unprofessional business. No employee or patient loyalty! I feel horrible for the patients that pay for their services! You will never see the doctor! The business cannot even pay their employees right, or the people they have do work for them!

Dr. Najjar is very unprofessional. He doesn't like to stick around for any questions you may have. If you have a loved one in the ICU please do not allow him to be your Dr. He orders unnecessary tests and he keeps patients on life support far longer than they should be. Overall I wouldn't trust him with my dog. Smh

He has been my doctor since 2011, but I have not seen him but 1 or 2 times in 2years or more. The p;roblem is when I am paying for a doctor I would like to see that doctor. I have requested to see only him but doesnt work. Another thing is the billing process..If they have a new person in office and not approved by insurance co yet, then you have to call and fight with insurance co to not bill OUT OF NETWORK. big hassle..happened to me twice now.

After I left I received a call from them asking why I missed today's appointment. I explained I went did test and cancelled appointment for later in week that I had originally rescheduled to. Got informed they didn't put in I came nor cancelled appointment for later n week.

They are an AWFUL place to go to. I *worked* there and they are horrible to patients and staff. All they care about is money. They schedule too many patients in a time slot and are way behind with appointments. Patients have complained of bed bugs in various rooms with nothing being done. The doctor and manager are degrading towards women. When patients make complaints, they do nothing about it. They do not care about anything except being paid by insurance.

He keeps overcharging my insurance. I have been using him for the past two years and have only seen him twice. His nurses are never the same, always has new staff when I go for appointments. Keeps asking for test that I do not need just to bill my insurance. Would not recommend him as a good doctor.

As others have pointed out and I've been seeing and hearing, Najjar orders a bunch of extra tests that cost insurance a lot of money and his reasons are absurd, since many tests have been done very recently, yet he wants to re-do and re-do them again and again, also double bills insurance, have seen ALOT of things that are just WRONG, but what are you going to do when he's all your insurance takes in the area, if you got choices, don't choose Najjar, Decatur Sleep and Pulmonary!!

Arrived for a sleep study and was too they overbooked, so they wouldn't have a bed for me. Wait over 30 minutes before being called back for an appointment with no one else in the office, and I have only met Dr. Najjar twice in several years, you see another Dr.They also are constantly recommending extra tests that you do not need. Not who I'd recommend.
