She and her staff are competent, concerned, have a great attention to detail and treat me as if they truly want to get to the bottom of the problem. They have taken my medical difficulties seriously (which even I myself am fed up with, for it feels like the issue has lasted far too long) and they are always responsive. Dr. Nagar is professional, never dismissive, and clearly has a firm handle on her expertise. She has an obvious combination of both a high IQ and a high EQ, with a good bedside manner. She is undoubtedly a feather in Northwestern's cap.
