I also had a horrible visit. I was very sick and pregnant. She told me not to talk and to only answer the questions she asked. Then when she was done she pushed me out of the office. She is worthless.

SHE WAS A JEWEL!!! I visited her at UT Physicians location in Houston for an enlarged thyroid nodule. Dr. Nader-Eftekhari was very thorough, clear and straight to the point! A wealth of knowledge and she is very experienced. Like stated in previous reviews on Healthgrades, she did type her medical notes with her index fingers instead of hand writing them while asking medical history questions and cross referencing with previous notes/labs. Being that the office is generally busy, you may feel a bit rushed which is why she doesn't like answering a ton of questions until she fully reads and interpret previous lab results. I kinda knew what to expect so I made sure that all of my labs results and previous medical history related to my thyroid nodule was already in the system before I arrived. I would definitely recommend her as your Endocrinologist with over 40 plus years experience, she knows her stuff!

If I could list ZERO STARS I WOULD ! ! I have been a nurse for 20 years. This is a terrible prvider. Horrible bedside manner, does not listen to the patient, arrogent, pompus, depends more on her experience rather thsn what the patient is experiencing or feeling. Will not let let you speak upon first meting you. HORRIBLE. I fired her as my Endocrinologist. People you have that option as a patient. THere are OTHER Dr. avaialbe out ther. DO NOT STAND FOR LESS THAT EXCEPTIONAL TREATMENT!!!

If I could give less than a star I would first and only medicine I took from her permanently gave me anxiety issues that seem to be irreversible. Tried going back years later with new research studies I found and she completely ignored all I said. I tore up the new meds she prescribed me after researching and finding out that they'd be terrible for me too. Even kept insisting O go on a med after I started I wanted nothing to do with that kind of medicine. Worst doctor ever.

Shockingly terrible provider. Echoing the sentiments of the other reviewers, Dr. Nader spent 95% of the appointment on the computer going over my medical history. She left no time for discussion or an actual exam, and when I asked the only question I could, she quickly dismissed me and implied I was being inconsiderate for going over our time limit (she was 40 minutes late). Very abrasive personality. This is job is simply a paycheck for her and you are just a number. Look elsewhere.

ZERO STARS. I saw Dr. Nader in 2016 for thyroid issues. She followed my labs for 3 months & tried to convince me I had Graves' Disease & wanted me to take some serious medications. I voiced concerns with this plan because my labs were improving, I tested negative for the Graves' Disease marker, & my symptoms were resolving. She told me if I didn't take the medications I would die. I got a second opinion a month later and all of my labs were normal. Dr. Nader would have ruined my thyroid for life

Dr. Nader-Eftekhari had not reviewed my medical records prior to our first (and only) appointment, but her lack of knowledge and understanding of my medical history didn't stop her from telling me that every physician I've seen in the past 4 years, including some who treated me for years, was entirely wrong about my diagnosis. She was condescending, despite being totally unaware of the recent medical literature in her field related to my condition. My experience with her was abysmal. Stay away.

This is my second time seeing Dr. Nader and I regret coming back to her after transferring to another provider. She did not review my records prior to the visit, spent 90% of the visit reviewing my records and reading her own prior note loudly and typing the note obsessively. She cared about getting her notes done during the visit more than answering my questions and concerns. She interrupted me multiple times so she could type on the computer. She had good knowledge but poor bedside manners.

Worst bedside manner I've ever experienced. Didn't introduce herself, was harsh, discourteous, asked same questions over and over. Took my medical history for an HOUR and entered answers into computer by typing with her index finger. It took an hour for her to take my medical history, then her actual exam was 5 minutes.

This doctor states she doesn't have not will she take time toward care for her fragile diabetic patient. Horrible bed side manner an willingness to work with her take time to help if it's not a simple fix. Left in tears with no help for my high blood sugar levels an being told I should find another doctor an how she has twenty other patients an I'm taking up to much of her, she is very rude. Office staff on the other hand are caring an go above an beyond there jobs to comfort patients.

She was rude and only wants to say what she wants then gets up to leave.Spent time telling me about a drug that's overpriced when she knew my A1C was normal then I called office to get a RX for my test strips and lancets. She called me back to tell me no. It would be irresponsible of her to write a prescription for that. I said how do you think my A1c was in good range? Because I check it after eating to see what raises my sugar and what doesn't. She obviously has no common sense for a doctor.

The worst experience I have ever had. She spent the entire time typing on a computer, has no bedside Manner, made my 19 year old daughter extremely upset, and didn't take the time to sit with us and understand my daughters symptoms. I have never written a review but feel compelled since our experience was so upsetting.
