Best of the best

Dr. Niren was a miracle worker for me! I had to spend 3 days in AGH because of cellulitis from an supposed spider bite. While there, I saw multiple different internists in the hospital, the infectious disease doctors, and even my own PCP. Besides prescriptions for antibiotics, I was basically sent home with little to no info on how to care for my wound/infection and looking worse than when I came in. Thankfully, a doctor friend told us about Dr. Niren and he personally said to come see him first thing the next morning! I was shocked because it usually takes months to get into a dermatologist! Honestly, I was skeptical that he could do anything different than the multiple other doctors I had already seen. I was willing to try anything though and I am beyond thankful that I found him! Within 12 hours of my initial appointment with Dr. Niren, there was obvious and significant improvement in my wound/infection! It was the first time in almost 10 days of the whole ordeal. I then saw Dr. Niren several other times for my follow up appointments and he was always thorough and adjusted my treatment plans according to how my wound was responding. Had I not found Dr. Niren, I can't imagine how long it would have taken for my wound to heal and I fear that I would have ended up back in the hospital because it was continuously getting worse until I found him. He's truly not your average dermatologist; he's so much more! I already have and will continue to recommend Dr. Niren to anyone in need of a skilled and brilliant medical expert.

Five Stars

Dr. Niren is one of the most brilliant men I have ever met and even though he is so intelligent he always listens to my concerns and talks me through my options and what he feels is best. I always leave his office looking better and knowing I am in the best hands. I also think is staff is so kind and cheerful. Normally going to the doctors is not a pleasant experience but going to see Dr. Niren and his team is always GREAT!
