Dr. Namen is an excellent pulmonologist who cares deeply about his patients' well-being. During each appointment, he puts me at ease while we discuss my condition which, at times, has been quite scary and difficult for me to handle. We have worked together to keep things under control, and I am grateful to him for my progress. I know, without a doubt, that should things ever start to go toward the negative that Dr. Namen will see me as quickly as possible and work with me to get things back on track. The peace of mind that Dr. Namen gives me regarding my medical care is priceless.


This was a great visit! I felt he explained my health situation in a understanding way to me. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions he was very thorough and took his time making sure I understood medication I need and why. Great Dr.


I felt like I understood what MD was saying in appointment, but husband said he did not.


Andrew Namen, M.D. is n outstanding clinician professor who cares for his patients greatly and treasures the opportunity to teach his clinical and communicative skills to the next generation of physicians.


Dr.Namen would highly recommend.


Excellent and caring doctor; explains everything and listens.




I was very impressed with Dr. Namen. He is very caring and explained all of my concerns in terms I can understand. Wake Forest Baptist is very lucky to have him as a provider. This was my first visit with him and I was very comfortable.


9. Complete I drive from Florida to see him!


Dr. Naumann is a caring and great doctor!


I love Dr. Namen! He truly listens to what you have say about what's going on with you. That is huge!


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.


exceeds all expectations


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.


very good always


Dr. Namen is the absolute best physician I have ever seen. His caring concern for me and my medical issues is beyond what I have ever expected. He is a TRUE asset to the medical center and to his patients. I feel fortunate to have a provider as good as him!!!
