One of the most caring and understanding Dr's I have ever visited. Listens and explains options and likely outcomes. Bedside manner is low key and discussions are never one sided.

in Dayton, NJ |
Dr. Nazarian was my fifth opinion concerning my lower back. I've been dealing lower back problems since 1987, cervical problems since 2008. I narrowed it down to two doctors who listened and Dr. Nazarian was one. I had a double fusion including cages from the front and back, it was pretty brutal but I'm glad I had it done, now three months in I'm chafing to go back to work. Not everyone can be happy but I'm overjoyed, no more egos and wasting my time with shots and therapy. 60 and lovin' life.
in Morrisville, PA |
I am a physician at Mount Sinai NYC, so I know how to take a history and do an exam. History taking was poor, the exam cursory and the recommendations for PT nonspecific. My husband's injury was acute and disabling and he basically told him he had arthritis. Totally useless visit. So, we went to my pain management guy at Sinai, who did a comprehensive exam, took a detailed history, diagnosed a facet joint injury, steroid injection and now my husband is almost pain free. Go to major med centers!
Trenton, NJ |
As I read the reviews I see 5 star ratings from patients who have had good experiences with dR Nazarian,HOWEVER,there are those who, like myself, have not. A surgeon is only as good as his ethics and morality and when that surgeon does perform a surgery such as a cervical fusion that ultimately fails, it is his ETHICAL DUTY to revisit his work and correct his mistakes. That is something Dr Nazarian was unwilling to do for me and thus caused me years of pain and anguish. THINK TWICE
in Princeton Junction, NJ |
So thankful for Dr.Nazarian & his entire staff for giving me my life back! Dr.Nazarian is awesome!! Very patient, empathetic and very thorough with explaining things in terms I understand! Beyond grateful for him and his help with getting me back on my feet after my laminectony & TLIF!!
in Princeton Junction, NJ |
Dr. Nazarian is very patient friendly, knowledgeable, listens and is patient to explain all aspects of issue and care. He came highly recommended and I too will highly recommend him. Danielle is outstanding as well. She always returned calls within 24 hrs or less. Only one issue I had was upon release from hospital. I didn't have med schedule nor was I able to get the opiod that night in the amount prescribed. In recommend the hospital give patients a few tablets or write two re, one for 2 days,

I visited Dr. N. for a 2nd opinion and have decided to use him as my surgeon. He was wonderful, spent the time with me to discuss my issues and the solutions in detail. I did not feel rushed or that he was in a hurry to get to his next patient. I truly left his office without a single question. Sharon, who schedules his surgeries, was amazing. Very kind and patient. I can't thank you both enough for making a difficult decision that much easier!!
