This is NOT about mr Nair as MD, I can't speak to that from a 6 minute meeting. This is about the extremely dumb and arrogant "lady" handling new patients. I'm making $2M/yr and have the best insurance you can think of (100% coverage, no deductible whatsoever) but she just lacked the brain capacity to understand anything outside her small scope. Pathetic, not really interested in patients but only their own commission to collect a few pennies. Lost a client today, but I doubt they care...

Dr. Nair started treating me when I was admitted to Mercy Hospital for Heart Failure. I am 58 years old and this was my first hospital admission. I was in bad shape and did not think I would leave that hospital alive. Dr. Nair treated me and put me at ease with a positive attitude and a work ethic that I had never seen before. This man cares and will do everything possible in order to get you back in good health.

I would definitely recommend Dr NAIR . He is the best at caring for his patients . He will sit and explain everything even if it takes telling you a couple times until you understand . His office girls in the back are wonderful! They take time to know you and treat you very nice either on the phone or in person... Great staff!
