Zero stars does not even come close to how horrible of a person this Dr is. She treated my mother in law so badly & my family. Not to mention every visit or test took FOREVER to authorize because of her disorganized staff. She showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for what she was going through. She at one point told my family "we are too emotional". My mother in law was falling, losing her ability to speak, dropping her utensils & was progressing rapidly. These are all signs of ALS which anybody can google that! I had a strong gut instinct that she had it. But Dr. Nassa would not listen. She insisted she had MS. She ended up in a wheelchair & told my grandma that we "made her that way" she told us "she can walk" my family left in tears several times. We all wanted answers, some sort of comfort. My mother in law passed away 3 months ago. Dr. Nassa misdiagnosed her with MS, told her she had had it since her 20's, she was going to possibly get better & was having her do extremely expensive infusions for months; which was making her worse. Not to mention signing off on meds for MS (which drs gets paid for when they sign) when we had already switched Neurologists and we let them know several times that she had ALS & will not be going back there. It took her new Neurologist one day to diagnosis her by looking at her MRI & spine test. Dr. Nassa robbed us of our time with her. Made us believe she could get better. We could of done so much more for her if she diagnosed earlier. Instead she passed away 3 months after her diagnosis. I am writing this so this does not happen to anyone else. I hope Dr. Nassa sees this and might decide to be a decent human being & follow the oath she took when becoming a medical doctor!!
Continues to be the worst doctor I've ever visited. I took one of my kids to see her when they were little. She was dismissive, rude, suggested multiple visits and follow ups... and got testy when I asked questions. I'm an educated professional and her attitude and demeanor were... bizarre. That might fly in a 3rd world country, but not here. Just terrible. Please avoid at all costs.
This doctor was 2 hours late to her own office, she was very rude and did not even introduce herself. She was very vague about my sons diagnosis. She said is completely normal but than offered meds and basically implied that if I dont give him the meds i am admitting that there is nothing wrong. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE, And she treats her workers like garbage.

Aside from being 2 hrs LATE....when she finally came into the room she did not even introduce herself but sat at the computer with her back to me and fired off questions. She decided that my month of headaches was from sleep deprivation and gave me an Rx for Amitriptyline. I took it one night and had horrible hallucinations. I went back to her and she gave me an Rx for Risperdal (scary stuff). I told her I wouldn't take it because I live alone with my 2 yr old and was afraid to be drugged and hallucinating all night. She told me that her loyalties were to me, not my child. She then ordered an EEG. When that was normal she wanted me to wear an EEG machine with electrodes and goop in my hair for three days and also a SPINAL TAP! I did not take the drugs or do the tests. I went to my chiropractor who told me to stop sleeping on my stomach and my headaches stopped immediatly. She was rude, didn't listen to what I said, didn't answer my questions and charged me to get my results from her.
Please avoid this Doctor at all costs. My son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and at the advice of our pediatrician we took him to see this neurologist. She spent 10 minutes talking to him and I after which she declared “He is not smart enough to have Aspergers, Aspergers people are brilliant”. This of course is the most ridiculous statement I've ever heard and shows she has no knowledge of the syndrome. Then she told him that HE was the problem and that he'd have to change his attitude as his attitude was the problem, then only moments later she told me she suspected he has tourettes even though my son has no noticeable tic and never has, not visible and not in his speech! She finished up the session by telling me that my son would have to be on very heavy medication for a long time and proscribed Lexapro and Risperdal, one of which is a powerful anti-depressant, the other is a powerful bipolar drug!
All of these amazing diagnosis after only 10 minutes of discussion, and a prescription for two incredibly powerful drugs. This is pure insanity!
In my opinion this doctor is a monster, plain and simple, drugging and medicating children who do not need it. Read the other reviews and you will see the same things I have stated here. Do NOT let this doctor see your children ever, and if you have children under treatment with her PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take them to another doctor for a second opinion. This was the scariest 10 minutes I've ever spent with someone who calls themselves a doctor.
