December 2017
In my 20yrs at VM, and after 5 PCP´s I feel I finally found the right PCP for me. My issues are with diet and lifestyle changes. Dr Naiman is a "diamond in the ruff" in this area. He is a pioneer in re-instituting the correct and safe nutritional regimen that is currently different by the mainstream guidelines of US healthcare. He practices what he preaches(for at least 20yrs) and backs it with fact and statistics. Mainstream/popular guidelines back it with debatable figures and "feel good" statistics. Other MD´s will take it for granted that you tried to lose wt. and just prescribe meds(that you truly don´t need). Dr Naiman has a proven realistic plan that works. Treasure this physician, he is a gem.
December 2017
I´ve recommended Dr. Naiman to several friends, we all think he´s great.

The doctor (Dr. Naiman) was impatient and disrespectful of my stated needs for treatment. He presented an attitude of arrogance and condescension.
June 2017
Dr Naiman was very concern about my previous diagnosis (from different doctor) for egg allergy - he explain me why the tests I took may have been wrong and proposed better tests. As it turned out I don´t have any egg allergies. He was very knowledgible but at that very concerned about my health. His comments were very clear to me.
June 2017
I sought out Dr. Naiman for his nutrition viewpoint to health. I was not disappointed. He spent plenty of time with me, explained information at a level I could understand (I preferred more technical & detailed explanations) and answered all questions I had. It was a terrific experience that I´ve never had with any other doctor.

Dr. Naiman is hands-down the best doctor I have ever had, bar-none. Even if my experience had been bad elsewhere in the clinic (it was great), he more than makes up for it in skill and knowledge. I recommend him to everyone and will continue to do so. If I could think of higher praise, I´d write it here.

I sought out Dr. Naiman because of a special medical focus he has around low carb, high fat diets. He is every bit the authority I had hoped he would be. It´s the reason that I decided to make him my primary care physician. It wasn´t so much that I was dissatisfied with my previous doctor at PMC. Dr. Naiman is a better fit for me.
