I have been Dr Najjar patient 15 years while he was at NYU Langone. Ever since he transferred to Lenox Hill he abandoned his old patients . Not that it was impossible to get appointment with him anymore but his staff is very rude, unprofessional and most of all NEGLIGENT. I was left without my medication for weeks . Despise my 20 calls to his office They neglected to call back pharmacy and refill my epilepsy meds. I had several seizures and was forced to go to the Emergency to get help.

The doctor seems to be very good. However I spent months trying to get the office staff to get things done. Ended up going to another doctor
