Ratings for Dr. Richard Nahas
Creepy, creepy man. Was a patient of his for a short time for chronic pain due to a spinal injury. Pushed expansive alternative therapies. Spewed a lot of bs with great confidence. Worst, usually felt the source of my issues was somewhere down my pants and don’t take kindly when I wouldn’t let him “treat” me... can’t say I’m surprised he’s been charged with sexual assault.
Dr. Nahas began successfully treating me, Diana, 58 years old, with his staff at the Seekers Centre in Ottawa in 2011, re issues of depression, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, chronic fatigue, severe knee joint/muscle pain, among other ailments. These had plagued me for years. My body had rejected many of the traditional medications, which had produced severe side effects and I sought more naturopathic ways of healing. Curiously, however, the naturopathic help from Dr. Nahas also had totally unexpected benefits: my myopic eyesight corrected itself and I have had 20/20 vision for the past 7 years. Another crazy benefit was that my gum pockets over time became half the size they had been 7 years ago and a decade before that, to my dentist’s astonishment. At that time, I was unaware of even more serious medical issues I would have from years of stress and poor health habits. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, Dr. Nahas supported traditional oncological treatment by Letrozole, with naturopathic supplements that significantly reduced side effects. My left breast tumor has now shrunk over time from 6 cm. to two tiny sludge-like bodies totally in necrosis as of last year; this is pretty unique and I am lucky. Dr. Nahas was then and faithfully remains today a deeply caring doctor and my hero. I am amazed at the health improvements I have experienced over the decade. Without exception, he has always been respectful of me, a true gentleman, and deeply worried about successfully resolving my issues, which, one by one were brought to manageable levels. As always, Dr. Nahas would conduct a thorough integrative and complementary analysis and assessment of my issues as they arose. He combines cutting-edge individualized and scientifically-based complementary and nutraceutical treatments with traditional approaches. He treats the whole person, in addition to just treating observable or reported symptoms. He always takes the time to listen carefully to my issues, never treating me like a number, and meticulously manages my health concerns. As I was a curious patient, he has always encouraged me to check information on the internet about diagnoses and treatments. I did, always, and always, he was right in what he prescribed. Dr. Nahas has an excellent back-up team, starting with his intelligent, competent and beautiful wife, Dr. Shadi Nahas, PHD, Director of Operations. Then there are the exceptional clinical associates (e.g. Haider), nurses (e.g.Yudith and Zannat) and administrative staff (e.g. Farah and Sam), etc., making this clinic unique.
He was very professional and very respectful. I only wish he would have kept focusing on getting people off medication, rather than specialising in chronic pain. Although if you are on the meds long enough, chronic pain will be a thing.
I'm a 37 year old female suffering from chronic back pain due to car accidents 7 years ago. I've been a patient of Dr Nahas' for a number of years now. And I have to say, he is the most professional, respefctful, informative and caring doctor I've met. He cares a great deal about his patients and he's constantly helping me improve my lifestyle to reduce pain levels. I've had numerous conversations with other patients in the waiting room, and every one I've spoken with expressed so much appreciation towards Dr. Nahas. I'm grateful to be under the care of a great doctor like him and his wonderful staff. Thank you so much.
I am 65 years of age. I have the privilege of being a patient of Dr. Nahas since 2012. He resolved my fatigue issues and restored my immune system. (I see him now once a year for a prescription review.) After suffering numerous bouts of bronchitis, my family physician, in frustration one day, said, "You've got to get your immune system back on track. Go alternative; I don't care what you do, but do something!" After meeting Dr. Nahas, I put my full trust in him and his team. I felt truly cared for. I felt that these people wanted to do whatever they could to make me well again. And they did. I was soon able to swim laps in the pool without collapsing on my couch for days thereafter, and I no longer get bronchitis or sore throats. Parenthetically, for 50 years I had jarring pain in my wrist whenever I wrung out a towel or opened a jar. They fixed that too. I am so healthy now. I have never been happier. I know this well-being stems from being treated with such thoughtful care by a family of exceptional people at the Seekers Centre. Dr. Nahas is a gifted and kind healer.
I have been a patient for years since my car accident. I love him and his team. I’m female in the fifties. I have not met any one that could help me except him. I’m glad to have him as a heath care provider. Thanks Dr Nahas . I believe that was a lie. He is a wonderful person.
I have been a patient of Dr. Nahas since 2013 after trying to get several other doctors to understand a pain condition that is now recognized as a world wide epidemic. Dr. Nahas is a competent doctor and a kind man, who is servicing a need not met by our health care system. Many other doctors have ridiculed or denounced my pain, either because they are not educated, they are not present, or because they do not care. Dr. Nahas has the remarkable ability to be respectfully present and to care at every appointment every single day.
