Dr. Nakhle has monitored me for over 5 years now. Had a thyroidectomy due to cancer in 2016. Initially he took his time and thoroughly explained everything to me. On my follow up visits he looks at my lab work and sends me on my way, not rude, yet not overly inviting either. Well now, the office staff is a complete worthless bunch! I asked for the lab slip to take to get blood work done(just like I have been doing for 5 years) someone was to lazy to get up and get that for me, so now I have to go back in December to pick up this form. Not totally surprised, I have had multiple issues with the staff over a 5 year period.

He as well as his office staff are very hostile!!!! Does not listen or answer questions. Definitely has anger issues that causes his office staff to also be hostile because he does not treat them very well at all.

I have been to Dr. Nakhle about 3 times and the only reason for me returning is because of his lovely PA Adriana; however, I will never come back to see him because he is the most rude doctor I have ever came across. He talks down to you and doesn't like to answer any questions. On my last visit, he full on YELLED at me because I didn't use the medicine he wanted me to try (I wasn't comfortable taking it). My grandma also tried him as a doctor and he yelled at her too! An elderly lady!! See any other doctor!! Don't waste your time with him. I wish I could only see Adriana without seeing him. LOL

He is knowledgable, I believe, but Rude and Crude and somewhat abusive. He clearly has anger issues almost to the point of Elder Abuse. His PA tells you one thing and he tells you another. They are rarely on the same page. It is a stressful experience for most patients.

He is a Great Doctor overall. He is also practical that if you do not need the treatment he will tell you and be honest about the medication if you overuse it that the medicine will do more damage. He cares about the whole well being of his patients and not after you to go to his office more often for the fees. He will tell you honestly you are good and just continue what you are doing and see you in 6 months. He will spend time with you until you understand how some treatment and medications work even doing a chart, etc. He is friendly and very knowledgeable. I really like his personality. He is funny at times too. It is sad that I have to change doctor because I change my insurance.

My husband waited for almost 2 months to be seen just to be sent home without diagnoses. Didn’t even order a blood test for thyroid nor got a copy of thyroid blood test. Was a total waste of time and money...I left a message with the medical assistant and it took more than a week to get a call back and that’s after I called again and reminded them of their call back policy of 23-48hrs...THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THEIR PATIENTS! They should really-think their profession.

I highly recommend him. He listens to you, has good manners and is honest. Honestly, he cares and does his best to serve his patients. The PAs and nurses who work for him are equally good. He has to keep schedule but he is the doctor you go to when nobody else works. He reminds me of the TV character, House but much better personality!!

Dr. Nakhle is the most RUDE, CRUDE ignorant Dr. In las Vegas. He has no compassion if you do not understand his explanations and will yell, at you as if you were stupid. He gets so angry if you question him in any way that, he screams and gets in your face with spittle coming out of his mouth. He says Mayo Clinic does not know what they are talking about. He says he went to school for 20 years, not to sit and write papers. I suggest he return to school and see if he can learn a little control. I was never so hurt and angry in my life. I would never return to Nasty Nahkle and would warn others. Also was in the waiting room over two hours.

Long story short, I was 15 min late to my thyroid biopsy because it was pouring and traffic was terrible. I waited 2 hrs which I wasn't upset about. Dr's get busy. I get it. It happens. But when Dr Nakhle came in to do the biopsy, I told him I had been prepped an hour ago so I wasn't sure if the prep needed to be redone. He immediately berated me about how I was 15 min late so him being 2 hrs behind was my fault and he could have just cancelled me appt. For a full 5 min. I will not be going back

By far the best Parathyroid specialist in Las Vegas! The only doctor that within 5 minutes was able to find a parathyroid adenoma with PTH elevated but still within normal. After 2 years of searching and now with severe Osteoporosis, kidney stone and abdominal issues he allowed for me to receive the help I need.

Dr. Nakhle is a very unique doctor in Las Vegas. I wish that the members of medical profession would be close to his expertise and professionalism. Despite the fact that he is very professional-he explains things in a simple language and treats me like a ''partner in treatment '' rather than just a customer. His Physician Assistant (a lady) is also GREAT!

My father nearly died from Nakhle’s care from a thyroid condition and diabetes. He nearly killed me by giving me Byetta with the huge amount of insulin I was already taking. That was his answer for everything - pile on the medicine which didn’t help. He did inspire me to learn more about diabetes and the endochrine system. I learned that he is a dangerous doctor. At least he is doing damage in the civilian world and he is not at the VA anymore. Without a doubt, he is dangerous to one’s health.

He has been my Dr. Since 2013. Dr. Nakhle listens to my symptoms and adresses them. I love that he writes on a wipe board to explain more complex issues. It helps me keep up with what he is explaining. I have never experienced poor bedside manner! I see him as super smart and a little silly. I now travel from out of state to see him. He's worth it! I think with endocrinology we all want a magic bullet and sometimes go through really hard times. That could be a reason for some poor reviews..
