I had no doubts about him caring for me and he really put me at ease. And the office staff are so pleasant and professional and the nurse really took the time to listen to whatever questions or feelings I needed to tell her. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nakhjo to anyone asking. As a matter of fact, I have already told a couple of people about him. The appts are scheduled and kept on time. No waiting for hours there. I would rate them a 5/5 and hope that they keep up their office professionalism and their attitudes about helping the "patient". Thank you to all staff and especially Dr. Nakhjo for helping me during this time.”

“Dr. Nakhjo did a great job repairing a left inguinal hernia for me. So nice in my case to not have a mesh placed inside! One less thing to be concerned about. And hey...just for the record, you don't have to go to Canada for no-mesh hernia repair. While mesh may be indicated for your particular case, it also may not be necessary. Talk to Dr. Nakhjo! He's the best" - Douglas Ayers, July 2023

“I am grateful beyond words to Dr. Nakhjo for his extraordinary surgical skill for my hernia surgery. Initially my consultation was going to just be a second opinion, however within moments of my consult I realized that I wanted him to be my surgeon. His demeanor and care put me at ease about the surgery. He took the time to answer all my questions, explain how the procedure would be laparoscopic and that I would go home the same day. In the weeks following my surgery I am moving with minimal pain without visible scaring on my abdomen. If you’re looking for a surgeon, Dr. Nakhjo does indeed deliver advanced minimally invasive surgery and his team at Newton Medical Center go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable throughout the process." - Joseph G, August 2023

“I’m usually terrible about writing reviews, of any kind. But this one was important to me to write. I really wanted to share my experience and my opinion. I wish I could give Dr Nakhjo and his amazing team more than 5 stars, as they deserve many, many more!! I couldn’t be happier with every aspect of the care I received. Everyone was wonderful! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! No one wants to have a hernia. No one WANTS to need surgery. But, if you do, Dr Nakhjo is the doctor you want. I would and will recommend Dr Nakhjo and his amazing staff to anyone who needs a general surgeon. There aren’t enough (positive) adjectives to describe just how terrific he is! ... After meeting him and his fantastic staff, that was it. I’d made up my mind. BEST DECISION EVER! The surgery went really well, I’m healing and looking forward to getting back to working out again... Thank you for being a great surgeon AND a wonderful, kind, caring person! To your fantastic colleagues… thank you all so much!" - Michelle S, September 2023
