I transferred to Dr. NIver after Dr. Braun retired. I have found Dr. Niver to be an excellent physician. He listens very well, explains things in ways that make sense to a non-medical college administrator. He is professional, well educated, and certainly compassionate and caring. I highly recommend him. I do find the infrastructure at the Urology Group to be very poor. Setting up an appointment can sometimes be very difficult and highly frustrating. Support staff often fail to get accurate messages to the physician. Most frustrating is the fact that their Patient Portal still is not up and properly running. All of the infrastructure issues have not kept me from seeing Dr. Niver. He is an excellent physician.

No one wants to go to urologist but Dr. Niver is very professional and detailed. He is able to explain without talking down to you. I was very happy with his manner. He seemed to take a lot of time and explain my options and what was going to happen.
