Great doctor. After having pain for almost a year that another colorectal surgeon couldn't diagnose correctly, I had 2 different people recommend I go to Dr. Nadler for a second opinion, because they had great experiences with him. In my initial consult, he identified what the problem was, just based on my description. He did an exam to confirm, and prescribed me a custom compound for recovery. The compound worked perfectly, and my 12 hours of daily pain are done. Clearly knows his stuff.

As a follow up to my previous review, I did have my second surgery in Nov. All went well and I thought Dr. Nadler’s bedside manner, in the hospital, was outstanding. He was so genuine and sincere and told me to call him anytime. I got very emotional over his response. If there is anything negative to say, it is about my final appointment with him In his office, a week after surgery. He changed my dressing, answered a few questions and he was gone. I did not even get to thank him for putting me back together. I still think the world of him, just a little disappointed in our final meeting. I definitely would still recommend him as his surgery skills are superb,

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!

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.

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.
