in Lake Arrowhead |
absolutely the most caring and professional doctor I've ever encounter. Some doctors are near his equal but none are better because of is experience but most of all his patient caring.I highly and totally recommend Dr. Nazzl having known him for the past 4 years since he saved my life on the operating table during a 4-way bypass.

I have been seeing Dr. Nazzal for years. He is truly a lifesaver in every aspect of the term. He is kind, compassionate, and dedicated to his patients and his work. He works with an incredible team of Doctors and his office has been so helpful in getting us seen within a reasonable amount of time. I couldn't be happier with the care we have and continue to receive.
Crestline, CA |
My complaint is about the office staff. The person that answers the phone was not helpful on checking medical information sent to the office. She hung up on me when I requested her to check on the information. She has my cell phone number and refused to answer my calls for over one month. She cut me off from all contact with my doctor. I am leaving my doctor who has been treating me for 9 years due to the office staff. The office manager did not return my call when requested a month ago.
