Dr. Nihalani is very very nice and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone. If I ever needed any surgery, he is the doctor I would choose. He is very pleasant.

Dr. Nihalani demonstrates superb skills and is very personable. He made me feel very comfortable at each appointment, before and after surgery. He displays excellent communication skills aside from medical expertise and professionalism by speaking to me in a manner which I can understand. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Nihalani to anyone interested in Lap Band or Gastric Sleeve surgery!

I went from a 20 W to a regular size 14 after my Lap Band Surgery. This is great, and I have never felt better! I would definitely recommend this doctor. Dr.Nihalani is compassionate, and he actually listens to patients. I have been off my diabetes medication since my surgery, which is actually the best part, the surgery actually worked! My sugar has been like 79, which is great!

Dr. Anish Nihalani is a highly-qualified, caring doctor. He never seems in a hurry . If you have a questions he answers them all , he makes time for you in his schedule. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a good, compassionate doctor. The office staff is also very good.

I had my lap band procedure at another practice and had to leave because my insurance changed and I had no out of network benefits! This was very difficult for me because I felt like I was leaving a lifeline. I went to Dr. Nihalani and instantly found him and his staff to be caring and warm. He listened to me, valued my opinion and took time to educate me on making the very best of this tool. Unfortunately, I developed a leak (of recent vintage) and the worst part about it was that my insurance company decided that fixing wasn't medically necessary and even went on to state in their letter that I wasn't a candidate to begin with(lost over 100lbs had other comorbidities)! I know that his office staff fought tooth and nail for me and this is quite time consuming. I was beginning to resign myself to the idea that fixing it just wasn't in the cards and I didn't have this kind of out of pocket money. Then the next week I'd received a call telling me I'd been approved!! What warriors!!! I can't thank the Doctor and his staff enough! I feel safe and comfortable with Dr. Nihalani and look forward to restoring this great tool. Let the journey begin, again. Thank you all!!

I would like to let everyone who feel afraid of getting surgery know that when you meet Dr. Anish Nihalani, his bedside manner, politeness, and preciseness are excellent. Him and his staff made me feel very comfortable. I recommend him to the world. My hernia surgery went great. On my first postop visit, I could hardly notice the scar. Thank you Dr. Nihalani.

by Ronald DeMatteo on Mar 27th, 2010

This is a rare doctor who visits you in the hospital and spends 10 to 15 minutes explaining what he did in the operating room, what problems there were and what problems he expects, if any, going forward. He actions surprised me on several items, but one that is noteworthy is that he did not charge the insurance company $225 a day, like most doctors, when he visited me daily in the hospital for 2 weeks. Several follow up visits to his office were also all part of his fee for the initial operation. If I could adopt him as a parent, I would!!!!

Usually I didn't expect a surgeon to spend so much time with me but he really cares about his patients and will spend time talking and answering questions, very nice and professional...
