I have been a patient of Dr. Nahar for a few years and I have to say that she is a true professional. Dr. Nahar listens and asks questions and then determines what treatment is needed. Her advice and instructions are easy to understand and the conditions that she is treating me for are all under control thanks to her. Having Dr. Nahar as my doctor makes me feel relaxed knowing that no matter what is wrong, she knows what is best for me. A better primary care doctor you could never find.

Dr. Nahar has been very kind, always professional and thorough, She is knowledgeable and easy to speak with, ready with referrals when needed, and will hound you (always in a nice way!) to attend to her recommendations. She is prompt, and her attention is focused on you, the patient. I have been able to communicate quickly and easily with her through the Lahey on-line system, no problems, and always fast responses. Her support staff is very good. I really like this doctor!

Don’t waste your time because that’s all you’ll get out of seeing Dr. Nahar. I’ve been lied to in order for her to appropriate blame elsewhere, I’ve never gotten call backs when they were urgently needed and requested....I could go on all day. I’m really not surprised at all to see the other reviews here to be honest and think they’re appropriate and even a bit nicer than what I’d expect to see. I’ve consistently had the experience of her walking out prematurely during appointments!

I became as patient of Dr Nahar because my doctor left the network. Absolutely the worst experience I have ever had with someone in this profession. Its is very clear to me that she is more interested in prescribing pills rather than actually listening. I found her to be extremely insensitive and callous.

She became my PCP after a suggestion from my OBGYN and it has been a terrible experience. I told her my issues and she basically ignored me and didn't seem to care. I ended up getting super sick and passing out and giving myself a concussion based on one of the issues I mentioned to her.
