Care Philosophy

All physicians have the same philosophy of taking care of their patients, it's their number one priority. What makes me different is applying that care not only when the patient is face to face, but from the time they are in my office; not waiting an hour to be seen, being able to get a hold of me promptly throughout the day and having phone calls addressed personally ASAP and taking the time to speak to family members when needed. I truly believe that all patients should be treated as family.Read more

Manchester Township, NJ |
Dr. Nagaria put me at ease right from hello. He and his staff are very friendly. He explained everything in clear and certain terms. And made sure I had all my questions answered.
in Forked River, NJ |
He's the best! I am so happy that my former Gastro referred me to him when he retired ten years ago. I am so confident in him, that I have been bringing family members as needed and all are very pleased with his care and commitment. He is very intelligent, astute in his field, and a keen observer, yet down to earth and very easy to talk with. He spends quality time with his patients and is very thorough yet I have never had to wait. The office personnel are hard working and very friendly.
in Waretown, NJ |
I was referred to Dr. Nagaria by my sister when it was time for my colonoscopy. His cleansing method was simple and did the job easily. The colonoscopy was a breeze and the pre and post colonoscopy exams were very comprehensive. I found Dr. Nagaria to be kind, thorough and very patient.
did excellent job - recommend

very helpful and caring
in Toms River, NJ |
The doctor and office staff were very friendly and professional. The surgery center was modern and punctual. I knew exactly what was expected of me and what the procedure entailed.
in Lakewood, NJ |
Amazing! He is everything a patient could want in a doctor - Knowledgeable, welcoming, charming, and honest....need I say more? I actually will miss not having to see him, now that my procedures are finished. That is how kool he is!
Toms River, NJ |
WILL NOT SEE YOU UNLESS YOU PARTICIPATE IN A FEW PLANS ONLY... AND IF YOUR PLAN CHANGES IN THE MIDDLE OF CARE HE WILL NO LONGER SEE YOU EVEN IF YOU WANT TO PAY CASH! SO DO NOT INVEST IN A DOCTOR THAT MIGHT SUDDENLY DROP YOUR INSURANCE AND THEREFOR YOU and then you have to start all over with a new doctor and wait months to be seen! not ok to toss patients around like this in the middle of a health crisis!
Ocean County, NJ |
Fairly good initial new patient visit. Knowledgeable with good bedside manor and answered questions. Office staff friendly and scheduled new patient appointment in about a week. After onset of new symptoms, personally spoke to me via phone but prescribed medication that even primary physician strongly agreed did not fit my symptoms. A new gastroenterologist was way more thorough performing a rectal exam and sending me for an endoscopy which found the painful inflammation I was experiencing.
in Toms River, NJ |
Already sent my husband to him and he was quickly diagnosed and treated successfully.
in Manchester Township, NJ |
If you are looking for an excellent internist that is caring and compassionate I would highly recommend Doctor Nagaria. I feel very fortunate that Dr. Nagaria is my internist, I know that he will spend the time with me to diagnose my problem and will have me on the proper course to address my problem. Terrific physician with outstanding people skills!

Dr Nagaria is very thorough and very pleasant as is his staff.
in Bayville, NJ |
I just read a bunch of recent reviews and couldn't agree with them more. Caring, patient, thorough, easy to talk to, sense of humor. I can easily say the exact same things about his staff. His older reviews on Healthgrades convinced me to make an appointment with him. I'm very happy with my decision.
in Toms River, NJ |
Dr. Nagaria is very kind and caring and takes time with you each visit. I would high recommend him to anyone.

A friend referred me and i'm glad she did. This was my first time to a gastroenterologist and he made me very comfortable from the start. He is very thorough, caring, and competent. His staff is very accommodating as well.
in Bayville, NJ |
I was recommended to Dr. Nagaria by Dr. Robert Simon. It turned out to be one of the greatest recommendations of my life. From the first time I entered the office, the staff and Dr. Nagaria couldn't have been nicer or more supportive. Dr. Nagaria took his time with me. Answered each and every question in a professional yet clear-cut method and explained the procedure he suggested I have done. He wasn't pushy nor over-bearing but sincere and understanding. He's the best!! Thanks for everything..
in Toms River, NJ |
Dr. Nagaria takes the time to listen and asks questions to help get to the heart of the visit. He is patient, warm and caring and has a sense of humor. So glad my primary physician recommended Dr. Nagaria to me.

Dr. Nagaria was helpful, courteous and respectful during all interactions. He took his time to explain all important information and answered all questions without rushing.
in Brick, NJ |
Courteous, takes time to explain, listens to your concerns, puts your mind at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Nagaria to friends and family.
I do not feel that Dr. Nagaria took my needs very seriously. I told him that I had been previously diagnosed with IBS but my pain was increasing. He decided the right test to send me for was an ultrasound on my gallbladder for gallstones, 3 weeks after my initial appointment. A week after my initial appointment I was in the hospital because the pain had gotten so bad. It was there that I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease by a different GI doctor. Dr. Nagaria never suggested Crohn's. Some doctor

Dr. Nagaria puts his patients at ease. He has a pleasant bedside manner and thoroughly explains the procedures he is about to perform. Also, he reviews the results of said tests in understandable language, never hurriedly and always in depth. He encourages his patients to ask questions and provides valuable insight.

Dr. Nagaria is a true professional both in the way he deals with individual problems in his area of expertise and in the way he treats his patients. He keeps accurate patient to appointment time schedules and provides a concise and professional yet easily understandable explanation of your condition as well as the treatment or tests that will be used in his findings. I consider him to be one of the best doctors that I have seen.
