Dr. Nanavaty is a super nice guy who really does want the best for you. I switched Dr's only because of his staff. I was having elbow surgery and they scheduled me with a Dr that only does hand surgery. Not only did I waste my time, but also wasted $138. I called the staff and Monique blamed me for going to the wrong dr. Then when I showed her the paper where she wrote down the phone number of the office when she made the appt she was ok. She gave me Kim Goldens number who never called me back.

He's a great doctor. Gets right down to the problem and provides options. Explains what is happening and takes the required time with his patients. He is a little old fashioned with his notes because he still has them dictated.
