ONE OF THE BEST

Very caring, competent physician. When emergencies arise, Dr. Naiem will take a personal call and/or see the patient almost immediately. He also is talented in bedside manner, protecting his patient from increased fear that might further aggravate a pressing cardiac situation.

Three Stars

If I could have provided an overall rating of 3.75 (vs. 3.0), I would have - however 3/4 ratings are not possible for individual ratings. Reading these reviews, and reviewing Dr. Naiem's credentials, he does appear to be a superb cardiologist. However for venous insufficiency issues as I had (reflux in the lower legs where the veins are not pushing the blood back up as it should) . A problem I experienced after my initial procedure (which seemed to go well) was not handled as it needed to be (if more time was spent here, a better handling of the issue would probably have resulted). And from a scheduling perspective, these venous-related procedures seem to be made only once every 4-5 weeks from my experience in trying to schedule my procedures. As compared to offices that specialize in vein issues, I have found that the usual time it takes after a consultation to schedule procedures is 2 weeks (or less). I hope this review is taken constructively and people find it helpful as a basis of discussion (things can always improve).
