He is not only brilliant and will properly diagnose when others have failed, he also has a heart of gold. You want no other doctor by your side for a complex autoimmune condition. He said "This too shall pass". I know it will.

with the office manager, they neglected to tell us that office policy for late appointments allows for a 15 minute grace period and the appointment will be canceled!?!?! This is the most disgusting practice I have ever had to deal with! There is no compassion and zero empathy!!! Horrifying!!!!

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
