Hello Dr.Now you are a great doctor and watch your show all the time, thank you for helping many people that need it. But one of your assistance is not very friendly, she always looks discusseted, when she brings the patients in. I have worked in a dental office for over 20 years and never had that adittude that your assistant has. Don't know her name because it doesn't come out on TV. But she always has a face that seems like she is discussed , not professional at all. But great full Dr that you help all these people out that need it.

Very unprofessional and gruff with patients. He made me feel embarrassed about my body issues. Instead of being helpful he was rude and disrespectful.

Dr Nowzaradan is a true general surgeon who cares for his patients well being. I was the Director of Materials at First Street Hospital for many years and I prided myself in getting whatever Doctor Now wanted for all his patients. He is truly amazing in the results and outcomes that he brings to so many. He is dedicated to no end...still working seven days a week out of several Hospitals and his Bellaire, TX office- seeing patients all weekend and conducting surgeries all week.

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.
