Dr Nagar exceptional bedside manners were remarkable . Her ability to communicate complex medical information in a way that was easy to understand demonstrated a deep respect for her patients' knowledge levels.She actively listened to my concerns,addressing each one with patience and empathy . Her remarkable skill of making me feel heard and valued as a patient left a lasting impression What truly distinguishes Dr. Nagar is her total confidence in her specialty.

Her confidence was not just a display of expertise BUT ALSO A REFLECTION OF her dedication to staying at the forefront of medical advancement..The Hospital should be immensely proud to have a physician of Dr. Nagar's caliber on their team.

I was lucky enough to get her after an iffy year with another doctor. It asked for help and a case manager called and got me into her. She took time and really listened our first visit. She wrote an RX and when I hesitated she suggested I think it over and research. I took the meds and it helped me sooooo much! Yay Dr Nagel! So grateful from NW

I wish I could give Dr. Nagar an 11/10! Instead of just saying “your MRI looked fine”, she still showed me the images and explained all that “looked great!” She instilled Hope that my memory issues and brain fog were treatable or at least manageable. She also seemed trauma informed in her interactions, not being dismissive about my symptoms or experience. I am so grateful to have found her.

I saw Dr. Nagar on the [ ]. She is always professional and friendly and listens to concerns I have as well as my husband's observations regarding my medical problems. The only concern I have is that she focused more on my husband when explaining issues and did not focus on me as much when addressing the issues discussed during this visit. I appreciate that she included both myself and husband but I do prefer that she look at me when I am discussing my health issues and not look at my spouse when I am asking questions regarding my health issues.
