In numerous visits with Dr Nagarajan, I have always found him to be professionally approachable and friendly while giving clear medical information and advice. Although I have gratefully survived 8 years after pancreatic cancer surgery, I continue to have stressful daily health challenges. Dr N is a great "cheerleader" for me, always encouraging me to have fun, eliminate stress and live every day to the fullest.

Dr, Nagarajan is a wonderful person as well as a super doctor. Since I first met him in May 2020 and up until this last visit on July 7, 2021, he gave me hope and excellent advice all through the chemotherapy up until he announced that I was "cured". He is one of the most intelligent physicians I have ever met and he always answered my probing questions. As an engineer, I had many questions for him and he never failed to provide me with excellent answers. I have so much confidence in him and I followed all his instructions and protocols and tried to stay positive throughout the process and I achieved excellent results. He made it so easy for me as he is such an excellent care provider. I have spent many years taking my elderly parents through Mayo Clinic for all sorts of conditions and surgeries, and I can say that Dr. Nagarajan is without a doubt, the best doctor (in so many ways) that I have every met.

Cleveland Clinic Reply

Thank you for this feedback. It is how we all learn and patients teach me all the time. I have thought a lot about my approach with patients. On one hand, I want to make sure they feel informed about whats going on and the options available to them, so we can make the best decisions for next steps together. On the other hand, I want to meet people where they are and not overwhelm them. In my line of work, things can be scary for patients despite my best efforts. What I want every patient and potential patient to know is that I will be honest about what's going on and am on this journey with you. If its helpful for you to re-connect to address any concerns, please reach out to my office at 954-659-5840 and we can schedule some time together.

Oh my gosh where do I start! I cannot find enough words to describe Dr. Nagarajan, he is so caring and concerned about me as a person/patient first, he is an exceptional Doctor. I love that he goes above and beyond the scope of relaying info making sure I understand what my care/healing process looks like. He also allows me to make what I feel is the best choice of action and then if it's not the right decision "according" to the CDC he shows it to me, explains it and therefore I have the option to continue with my choice or, go the medical route. I love that about him. And, he is also very patient with me and he's never in a rush and that you don't find in Dr's now day's, they're all in a rush to get to the next patient. Thank you guy's for choosing quality staff.
