Dr. Nathan was guided to save my life. He is a testament to what God can do. It is God who poured into him as he performed my brain surgery and restored my life. I survived an arteriovenous malformation and I am alive today. Thank you God for allowing Dr. Nathan to do Your will.

Didn't recommend unnecessary surgery, manages chronic condition well, ease in scheduling appointments and dealing with staff, never a long wait. Only issue is they don't call with reminders and I can be forgetful, need to set an alert to treatment ntmy appointment.

He is rud and give me any medication I want when I pay him money under table . I got affection to bad medication of him and I'm in rehabs now . Dishonest and never listen to you what are talking about . He care about his portion of money more then any thing else . Then he recommended a surgery just to make money not because I really need it . Every time I go to him never let me to talk about the pain I have in my back . Just give medication and good bye for next visit .

He did not listen to his patients and no caring at all ,very very rude doctor .
in Frederick |
Most of the office staff was pleasant. The doctor was very rude. Would not recommend. After I had surgery he was rude to me when he walked into my room and saw me crying. Told me to stop that it wasn't going to help. When I tried to explain how much pain I was in he did not address it. When I called his office post surgery, lady on phone was rude when I said who I was. Told them I was still in so much pain and he told me to take advil and call in three days if not better. Dr did not seem to care
