As great as Dr. Nihalani might be, his staff is a nightmare. They are rude, arrogant and don't explain anything, If you call there asking to speak to the doctor, they will not put you through. I doubt they even give him the message, rather they try to diagnose you themselves over the phone. I could never recommend this doctor because of his staff. Horrible experience.

Dr. Nihalani changed my life for the better. He and his staff provided the necessary information, resources, and support throughout the Gastric Sleeve experience. He thoroughly explained my options and put me at ease from the first visit. He provided his recommendation and let me decide when or if... I most certainly would recommend him to all friends and family who are ready for the journey to a better wellness lifestyle. His staff is friendly and encouraging you can only smile ??

My experience with Dr. Nihalani has been nothing short of amazing. He was so knowledgeable and informative that I immediately trusted him to perform my weight loss procedure. I feel completely satisfied with the quality of care I received and would highly recommend him to family and friends. Throughout this experience He has provided me with so many resources. He and his staff have been available to me every step of the way. With his help I have reached my weight loss goal. Thanks Dr. Nihalani!

I started my journey with Dr Nihalani in Feb 2017, I was suffering with high bp for at least 2 years and needed to do something about it. I lost 28lbs on my own, I had gastric sleeve on 7/7/17, I am currently 248lbs, and on nothing major, I feel amazing, thanks to nihalani. He walked me thru the whole process from beginning to end, and I would recommend anyone to him.

I'm a nurse and kind of difficult to deal with. Dr. Nihalani put me at ease on my first visit. Answered all my questions and told me I did not need surgery! He told me what to look for to indicate I would need surgery. When the time came Dr. N explained what surgery was needed and we proceeded. My scars are even wonderful!

I had the gastric sleeve done and what I liked most was he prepared me two to three months prior to my surgery by having me do the diet that I would basically live on the remainder of my life. It prepared me so well that it was very easy after the procedure to cut back on my meals and not get discouraged. I have lost 95 pounds since my procedure at the end of May 2015 and it has changed my life forever. I'm a totally new person and I owe it all to Dr. Nihalani. He's the absolute best!
