  • Sep 11, 2019

    I just wanted to say that I think that Dr. Naik is a talented surgeon and does a great job. My only complaint or suggestion would be that she improve her bed side manner. I was laying in the hospital bed getting ready to go into the OR and the nurse said that she would be in to talk to me. I was having breast surgery and she didn't, she just stood at the door and wave to me. I never talked. She never talk to me one time. Before or after the breast surgery, so I guess that would be my my one complaint that I would like.

  • Sep 05, 2019

    Dr. Naik is wonderful. Having surgery was scary for me but she took the time to answer my questions, never made me feel judged or insignificant, and really knows her field well. I am a nurse practitioner and felt very well taken care of by her. Fantastic doctor. Everyone who was involved in my surgery was wonderful. Her resident...I think Michael? I can't remember. He was very nice too.

    Hi, this is [Name] calling. And I'd like to give you my feedback on... on Dr. Naik. She's a wonderful doctor. She's so calm and reassuring and she listens to everything that I have to say. She's never in a hurry and I usually don't have to wait too long. I've had cancer 3 times and she was my surgeon to remove my breast and I was told by my masseuse that there is very little scar tissue there. So she did an excellent job with the surgery. Thank you.
