Specialties

Dr. Richard H Nierenberg has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Rude and arrogant. Visit was a waste of money. Unless I was incapacitated and had no choice of doctors, I would never put my health or life in his hands.

Elderly patient treated terribly...

My 76 year old mother was admitted to FGH on recommendation of Urologist due to severe bladder infection. Was passing blood for 2 days after seeing Urologist and given antibiotics which she couldn't keep down. When finally seen by Dr. Nierenberg, he did not examine her at all but chastized her for seeing so many doctors and told her to leave the hospital and go back to the Urologist. All was told to her in a very rude manner. She felt as though she was being "kicked out" of the hospital. After leaving the Urologist couldn't fit her in for several days in which time her infection worsened to the point that she could not urinate at all. This is very poor professionalism on Dr. Nierenberg's part. He provided no examination, yet determined that she did not need his care or time. Not the type of care you want for you parent or any other human being for that matter. Dr. Nierenberg should not be allowed to practice medicine if he has no compassion for his patients. As I understand it, you go to medical school to learn to help cure people. I guess some just go for a paycheck and maybe Medicare doesn't fit into their lifestyle.
