I've heard so much greatness about her, the wait to see her was over 3+ months, but worth it!

I've been a patient of Dr. Nagar's since April 2004 we've been together for 15 years this coming April 2019. We've tried several treatments over the years found what works and doesn't work. My current regime is what has worked best for me. She always lets me know what the latest treatments are available and we discuss if we'll try it or not. I love her. She's the best Neurologist I've had, very caring and listens to me. Appreciates I take her suggestions to heart and implement them into my routine if possible. Together we've found what my triggers are and what to do to help/prevent them if possible. When I have flair ups decide which meds are the best treatment to do. I cannot say enough about her and the treatment she's given me all these years.
