I saw Dr. Nirmel because I had debilitating back pain, he went over my MRI and X-rays very thoroughly, on a big screen in fact. He explained in detail why I was hurting so much. He recommended conservative therapy ie; injections, pt, but that did not work for me. I had a minimally invasive discectomy done 2 weeks ago, and I am now pain free. Thank you Dr. Nirmel!!! You are the best!!!!
Dr NIrmel is the best neurosurgeon. He is very knowledgeable and extremely patient. He listens to you, and explains in great detail re: your condition. He displayed images on a huge screen so that I could view them with him and explained in great detail about my condition. I have never been to any Doctor like this. His staff is great also. Very pleasant. I would go back and recommend the office to everyone I know. Thank you Dr. Nirmel.
