Needs a better bedside manner. This is a doctor who is very rigid in her treatment planning, not very imaginative or flexible and gets irritated when her patients require more understanding. Also spends a lot of time talking about the patient to her residents/medical students as though the patient is not in the room. There is no problem with teaching trainees, but please be sensitive!

She is basically a robot. Very by the book with no creative thinking.

Dr. Nirenberg was very patient with my mother, an elderly Parkinson's patient, and me. She listened patiently and clearly explained things to my mother and was able to adjust her medicines (prescribed by anither neurologist) to be more effective with less side effects. When my mother was sick in the hospital, she promptly returned calls for consultation and called to check on her progress. She prescribed walkers and therapies that other doctors had not. Dr. Nirenberg has made a significant positive impact on her quality of life. I have recommended her to friends who have parents with movement issues and will continue to do so. And my mother travels from Baltimore to see her - not an easy thing for a 79 year old with advanced Parkinson's! A true testament!
