When I went in for my yearly check up, they had me re-fill out a form with my info, even though I already did it on Zocdoc. Due to the waiting room being small, I felt uncomfortable because it was filledand there where people coughing and I was ready to get out of there. The nurse was nice. The Doctor wasn't that great. She was in and out of the room, didn't really talk. For meeting her for the first time I expected a little better beside manner. I am looking for a permanent family physician who I can stick with, and I did not find it here.

As usual, Dr Nama was very professional and her bedside manner is great. She always checks on me "personally" as she is aware I am a widow and wants to make sure everything is going well, that my meds are workingas they should or if I have any concerns about anything. When she learned my insurance had changed as I recently retired early and no longer have as good a policy as I had before, even suggested an alternative way to handle some testing. She is a very good family doctor and I would recommend her.

Dr. Nama is not just your "Average" doctor. She is very efficient, competent and caring. She is well educated as the many different health issues. Always gives good advise. She does NOT over medicate her patients. I agree with this policy.She gets to know you on a personal level which is not only "unusual" for doctors these days but QUITE REFRESHING. Gives you hope that doctors DO STILL CARE! Her staff is excellent. I have never had a single problem with receiving a return call on a message I have left. Just a really OUTSTANDING STAFF, all around.
