I had a stroke two years ago and luckily I had no lasting effects Dr Kirmani and his Fellow Dr Mehta were determined to find the cause of my stroke I was very scared of all the testing I was about to undergo but they were very reassuring and took care to explain everything to me They determined that I needed a PFO closure and referred me to a wonderful cardiologist At every appointment I had with Dr Kirmani he was caring and patient with me and spent a lot of time with me, the best md

Dr. Kirmani was one of the most patient and empathetic doctors I've ever met. He took more time than most doctors would have, while in the midst of a busy day, to ease my father's concerns. It was beyond appreciated and has totally made a positive impact on my father's mental well-being about his health challenges. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a neurologist.

Gem of a doctor.This doctor cares for the patient the most.Never seen such a great Doctor who cares for the life of his patient like his own.Very down to earth.There were several hospitals we have visited to get cure for a large AVM that my wife have and we were not successful.We were lucky to meet him when my wife got admitted to JFK ER in February 2016 due to seizure.He is currently in the process of treating her AVM.So far it's been a great experience with him

Very nice man, listens and explains things to you that you can understand. He made a drawing and explained things on our level. Very personable and did everything he could to help my husband. He was a blessing. Went to a doctor previous to him that was awful and not nice.
