Dr. Nirmel is a wonderful doctor. He has operated on me several times and my last operation has left me feeling great in a long time. He listens intensely and does not rush you. He is a very caring and understanding doctor. His office staff is also very nice. He has changed my life for the better.

I had a 2nd surgery to fix what Nirmel did to my spine. I had that second surgery after recovering from Spinal Meningitis that I got from a procedure that Nirmel did to find out why his surgery was not working for my back. A Milo-gram (sp) that resulted in streptococcal salivarious spinal meningitis that put me in ICU, then FUH and the a transfer to BWH. And then corrective surgery on L2/3 that Nirmel didn’t fix in the first place.. Brain swell resulted in damage to my Cerebellum

Dr Nirmel performed kyphoplasty on my mom’s spine essentially cementing a fractured vertebrae. Within 24 hours she was pain free. And what is most amazing ... my mom is 93 years old. Now she is up and waking. I am so grateful to Dr. Nirmel, just so grateful. He is highly skilled, compassionate, with a calm warm demeanor. If I ever need the services of a neurosurgeon, this will be my doctor. You will not be disappointed.

Dr Nirmel is one of the best doctors I have ever met, unfortunately his secretary is the worst I have ever encountered. Due to this it has drastically affected my overall experience and level of care.
