Dr. Narayanan is very efficient but any questions that I had were answered and I did not feel rushed. I had insurance billing questions and the staff was able to resolve the issues.
in Valparaiso, IN |
Spent very little time explaining difference in choice of procedures. Just prior to procedure surgery setting I saw him maybe 30 second and never saw him again until two week followup. Just not enough time with patience. I have had to call nurse two times as of now due issues with procedure both times I am per scripted creams that are not working. Everything seems to be in a rush.
