I had emergency surgery in June with Dr.Nadler as my physician . I did not know him at all but he came in and talked to me before surgery. He seemed kind and considerate and explained things well. Since then I have gotten to know him and I like him a lot personally and professionally. I have another surgery in two weeks and I hope to be writing an excellent review of the outcome. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I meet with Dr Nadler a month ago, he was very professional and I liked him and felt comfortable with him. His office staff is another story, very unprofessional and not truthful. Long story short, don’t overbook procedures then lie about times, and he/she said. Other people have obligations too. Had to change 4 people’s schedule 3 times due to lies. Went from 7 to 9 to 11 to canceled. Better not get an invoice from Nadler or the hospital!!!!

My experience with Dr. Nadler has been GREAT. I have a patient for a year and a half. I have nothing but praise for him. He takes his time and explains everything to you. I had a concern on a sunday called the answering service and he called me right back.

I just left a review, but 500 characters was not enough. I also want to just say that sooooo many nurses and medical professionals who I encountered in the many months of treatment said that they also were patients of Dr. Nadler or that they sent their parent/relative to him. I feel that is a very high compliment from Dr. Nadler's colleagues!

Excellent characteristics-very focused/detail oriented.Had 1st bout of diverticulitis with a micro-perf.Very good care of me; every need/detail addressed w/o asking.Visited 2x a day.Tho didn't go to OR, his concentration proves surgical skill is immaculate-confident good outcome.His facial expressions clearly display his mind&his moods are variable-no reflection of expertise.Conservative decisions.Only c/o: lacking disease ed, management, f/u-suggest RN to fill gap.Staff odd tone, but efficient.

I have had Chrohns since 1996, in 2016 I required a resection of my ileum and colon. Dr. Nadler and his practice have done an exceptional job in both my treatment and care. I will continue to see Dr. Nadler, and would gladly recommend him to anyone requiring gastric surgery. He is a kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable surgeon, who I have and will continue to trust my care.

Doctor Nadler is an excellent surgeon . He is very companionate and has a genuine concern for his patients. Doctor Nadler takes the necessary time to answer all your questions and concerns.

I would NOT recommend Dr. Nadler. From my initial scheduling phone call, I hesitated following through with my first appointment. The schedulers/secretaries were very rude in their tone, short, and cut me off mid sentence several times. Despite my hesitation, I did follow through with my first appointment. By my second appointment, I switched practices. I am very unhappy and disappointed with my experience.
