In general I did not like the visit, when they called I said I haven;t been to a primary care doctor in year like 10+ and I told them them I wanted a complete work up and they said okay. WhenI got there they did nothing because they said I needed to have an empty stomach for test which they never informed me. I also thought she criticized my diet plan way to harshly for not knowing the plan and for our first meet. She literally only talked to me so I paid a copay and nothing was done that I let them know in advance about.

I was very pleased with the ease as to which I could talk to Dr. Najam. I left the office with more information from my one visit than from 10 years at my previous doctor. I received a follow-up phone callthe next day. I feel like I am finally on my way to becoming healthy!
