dr. nowzaradan is a saint, plain and simple. His empathy for people caught in an addiction that kills, but makes others see them as ridiculous and despicable, is unique. When he interacts with patients he maintains his kindly detachment and quietly goes about his work. He takes on the probability of endless lawsuits by working with such a high risk group of patients. He is clearly trying to do good and applies his formidable skills to that end. A noble man.

Dr. Nowzaradan was able to diagnose the condition of achalasia that I had suffered with for years. I had gone through numerous tests to figure out what was wrong with me with doctors in the Chicago area where I live and none of the doctors could tell me what was wrong with me. I flew down to Houston to see this wonderful doctor and he did a barium swallow xray and in five minutes told me what was wrong with me. I have an appointment with a doctor in my area to do the corrective surgery.
