Parkville, MD |
When I saw Dr. Naff, he kept me waiting for over an hour. When he finally entered the room, there was no apology for keeping us waiting. He never looked at me. He sat down near me, with his back facing me to look at my X-rays. He then scooted over with his back still facing me to his desk. He didn't get up and go around to his desk chair, but sat on the wrong side with his back to me. He said he didn't see anything on my X-rays, gave me a slip of paper for physical therapy and sent me on my way!

I was sent by workmans Comp for this appt and this was the first shock. 2nd spent 10 mins with me after waiting over 30min. In his report he left out many of my issues, my pain level, and my continued symptoms. Said things that were upsetting but most of all that my injury had nothing to do with my work accident. What is sad is there are other workman comp Drs that said it was related. So disappointed in this Dr. Beware workmans comp cases what you say to him, he will sell his soul.

I broke my back and went to Dr. Naff, he performed 3 surgeries on my lower lumbar spine over the course of 9 years. Later I had a c spine surgery. Dr. Naff performed all 4 surgeries and they were all successful and with minimal pain and minimal down time. I actually love and Praise God for him, for now I am walking upright, with no pins, no crutches, no metal in my body and you wouldn't know I had an issue if I never told you! He and his staff are very knowledgeable about neurosurgery! love him

Don't go to him. He's untrustworthy! Arrogant!
Westminster, MD |
My experience was very disappointing. I expected more from a doctor with such outstanding credentials. After sitting in his office( not waiting room but his actual office) waiting for an hour, he then came in and spent no more than 5 minutes with me and never even went over the results of my MRI. He stated I see something there, but don't know what it is. I will never go back.

I had an incident where I was suddenly struck with sciatic pain. It was terrible. I went to 4 other doctors before I saw Dr. Naff, who was highly recommended to me by a coworker. Dr. Naff recommended surgery right away and I was able to schedule it at Sainai 5 days later. A disk in my lower back had slipped and was constricting the nerve. He fully explained my situation and my limited options. The operation was a success. I fully recommend Dr. Naff

My primary care dr. Sent me to Dr. Naff after experiencing back pain and numbness down my leg for 2 months. From the first visit, I was very impressed with his kindness and professional matter. Two weeks later, I had surgery. Dr. Naff and his office staff and the staff at Sinai were absolutely wonderful. All were kind, caring, and very empathetic as I was extremely nervous. I could not say enough good things about them and would highly recommend him.
