About Dr. Nadeem

Philosophy of care

Finding out that you have cancer life altering not only for the person with the diagnosis but the loved ones who suffer with the person. Soon after realization sets in for the new diagnosis the first instinct is to learn as much about the diagnosis as possible. Unfortunately, in the era of social media navigating the landscape of the diagnosis is challenging. Far too often misinformation can cause more harm than the initial news.

My goal is to provide information that can help you make the right decisions during these trying times. Medicine is indeed a shared decision process with the physician and the patient (along with the family). I hope to provide the relevant information to help you navigate your diagnosis and treatment plans. I hope to help you navigate the process and provide you the optimal support for you and your family.

Why I entered medicine

For me, medicine was the only career choice for me. I cannot see myself doing anything else or practicing any other field of medicine. Before the age of 10, I was heavily involved in helping my mother design her clinical practice. In my teenage years, I spent a lot of time in several hospitals in the city volunteering in various departments to get more exposure. In my undergraduate training, I spent time in a cancer lab that focused on drug design. Naturally the next step was medical school.

Community involvement

I do feel that health care is basic human necessity. While in medical school, I helped to staff a volunteer clinic with medical students as well as helped with fundraising for the clinic. We were able to see the patients free of charge and we had gift cards for those who needed it to help them with the cost of their medications. We were also able to assist the patients with nutrition since the clinic was part of a food bank. I hope to start/participate in a similar clinic once I am established here.

Personal interests

Outside of medicine my biggest interest is in in cosmology – the origins of the universe. We live in such a vast universe that spans such a grand period of time, one can only imagine what lies outside our own solar system. I've had the privilege to travel to remote sites around the country and gaze at distant stars with the large dome telescopes.

My family and I love to travel and see the world. Each year we travel to a different area of the world and see beauty the of the world and its cultures. Because there is so much out there to see, we make it a point to try a different place every year although we do have some favorites.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
