Dr. Andrew Namen, MD, is one of the best doctors I have encountered at Wake Forest Baptist Health. He exudes knowledge, compassion, empathy, and is always well prepared by having reviewed all chart and medical records before the visit. He has reached out to me by phone after his busy clinic schedule to help put my mind at ease, however he is thorough and does not downplay objective medical results and symptoms. Even when I relocate to another city, I hope to continued my doctor/patient relationship with Dr. Namen.
This was the first visit with this doctor after having the sleep lab study.
