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.
