I appreciate how responsive and informative through the MyWakeHealth portal she is! This helped ease much of my concerns as my test results were delivered.


Dr. Namak is an exceptional provider who is patient and cares about her patients over all well being. She makes it easy to trust her and her thoughts, as she always include you, your thoughts and feelings, in providing care in a team approach with other providers to make sure you receive the best care possible; that you are comfortable with all decisons made and understand step by step what is going on with your health and what is being done to treat as well as provide preventive care . That is why I returned to her when I relocated back to this area and have referred others to her. I pray her continued covering and blessings, and WFBH in general, as she continues to provide such a high standard of care. She is truly an asset to the Wake Forest Baptiest Health entity.
