  Overall Patient Rating - January 2020
This was the first Doctors appointment where my wife was completely engaged and felt that a care provider gave me, us his complete attention with plenty of well understood explanations to our questions. Dr. Naiman is the first I've had that himself is active, healthy and willing to address and include my own pursuit of athletics into my treatment plans. We both left my last appointment quite satisfied and well regarded. Dr. Naiman has changed my diabetic life dramatically with advice on a new insulin treatment to match my own dietary choices. Nailed it! I feel confident that when I see him I will be helped quite well. Dr. Naiman helps diabetics become self guided and informed.
