Accurately diagnosed what other physician's missed. He spends time with his patients. He listens and is caring. He is also the most intelligent physician I have had. Trust his diagnosis and treatment plan. It works! He has had me in remission for years.

Dr. Namey is the best for a multitude of different diseases. He is extremely knowledgable and friendly. He also takes the time to know exactly what is going on instead of popping into the room and leaving. I can tell he really cares about his patients.
