Additional Information
I am dedicated to a lifelong three-part mission: excellent patient care, medical education and research, and I am proud to serve this mission at Temple. All patients should receive the best cutting-edge care and treatment, a thoughtful and complete diagnosis, and a relationship of trust with their doctor. I strive for this every day and hold myself to the standard of care I would expect for my family.

No patient should ever experience discrimination when facing serious disease. I am committed to providing excellent care to every patient, regardless of race, background, belief, orientation, gender, or any other characteristic. We are all human beings deserving of respect and compassionate medical care.

Dr. Narewski is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. I am especially impressed with her body of knowledge, her knowledge of my past medical-situation (I am a new patient with her this year), her punctuality, her listening to and explaining things, and her enthusiasm for her job. She is a rock-star!

I was very late for my app't. and Dr Newwski consented to see me when she finished with other patients. I appreciated this kindness because I travel more than 11/2 hrs. to get there and I had some health concerns that I wished to discuss with her. I had been hospitalized since my last visit w/ Dr. N. and that caused me great concern.
