Dr. Namen was fantastic. I could tell he had reviewed my chart before opening the door and shaking my hand. He printed off a journal article to help me understand what was happening, and reviewed prior test results before explaining why he would like some additional test, and what he was looking for. He took time to help ease my fears, and to support how I was feeling. I have already recommended him to two other people.
Dr Namen has unique abilities: He is caring, highly skilled and over the past 4 years has helped me manage severe COPD. He is a fantastic doctor who has changed my life for the better.
very thorough and informative. explained treatment plan so I would know what to expect and how he medications work.
Dr. Namen is the best doctor I have ever had. He is very caring, meticulous, and makes sure I understand. When I came to Wake Forest Baptist for this particular problem, he was the only doctor who was interested, or even cared what I was going through. I felt secure that he was going to get me through this difficult breathing problem, and he has. Dr. Namen is a wonderful doctor!
*Dr. Namen is a very kind & compassionate person & an excellent pulmonologist the BEST in every way!
dr Namen is the best!
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.

Would highly recommend Dr Namen and his staff at Wake Forest Baptist Health. to everyone.
