Dr. Nagar is by far the most important Doctor in my life. Her compassion, caring, and knowledge is amazing. I owe her my life she saved me after months of various Doctors including another neurologist who told me I was fine. I had two rare autoimmune diseases that could have killed me. Dr. Nagar recommended a Rheumatologist for me to see and called them to tell them her findings and recommended I see them.

Dr. Nagar is truly a blessing in disguise. She had to cancel an appointment of mine in June due to a family emergency. I happened to be on vacation at the time and was unable to come in for the proposed rescheduled time and would otherwise need to wait until October to see her. I am in the process of getting scheduled for various testing at Mayo Clinic during my clinic week at the end of August, just finished up seeing a sub-specialty Neurologist at NorthShore for my ANS and had results and findings to report and am in the process of preparing for a move out of state to Georgia and will be needing to find brand new doctors. Dr. Nagar was able to fit me in at an 8:00am time slot (the only time Im available) at a date of my choosing just a couple weeks later. She stated that she was going to personally write a letter of introduction to a new neurologist I was scheduled to see at Emory University and assured me that she could still see me via Telehealth even after I move out of state, which is a huge breath of fresh air. I have never encountered another doctor that has been on the same page with not loading me up with new meds to cover up the problem and instead trying to find out the *why*. She is determined to uncover the underlying components involved and even commended me for sticking with it and not giving up when something turns up uncertain or I reach a seemingly dead end. Im so used to being dismissed by doctors when something isnt right and usually need to have my mom present in order for anyone to ever take me seriously and give me a second look. But Dr. Nagar *sees* me and never makes me feel like I am not heard or dismissed. There needs to be more Dr. Nagars in the world! And preferably in GA. And in every specialty on my list. That would be fabulous.

Dr. Nagar is 1 of only 2 doctors that actually take the time to help me and hear what I have to say. Ive seen and been sent to over 28 doctors and specialists/ sub specialists over the last few years to address a variety of medical concerns and problems and Dr. Nagar is one of the only ones that does not push me aside when routine testing comes back inconclusive. She listens to you and hears you and makes you feel like you matter and that your health is important. Ive been pushed aside by so many doctors because Im younger than the average patient and my health conditions are atypical for my age and often feel like Im talking to a brick wall with other doctors. But today I burst into tears. Because she is the only one that has ever actually listened to what I have to say. She talked through a plan with me and went through a series of tests she wanted me to get done and that she was going to help me get everything figured out. And that she would touch base with other doctors she told me to contact to give them a personal update herself. She assured me that it was going to be okay. And that even if I move away, it doesnt mean she will ever stop being my doctor. With as many health conditions as I have in conjunction with symptoms and problems that dont line up with a set diagnosis, finally finding someone who is actually willing to hear you and help you get to the root of the problem, instead of just treating the symptoms, is extremely rare to find and gets emotional when it does. I dont want to be medicated my whole life just masking the symptoms of pain. I want to know the root of the problem. And she is a rarity that is helping me through figuring that out. Ive cried twice at doctors appointments. My appointment a couple weeks ago because the doctor wouldnt help me or hear me even after abnormal test results. And today. Because Dr. Nagar *heard* me and showed more compassion than any other doctor Ive ever had in my entire life. She gave me hope that Im on a path to getting answers. And she wont stop trying until she figures it out.
