Dr. Nirenberg is an excellent provider and physician, he was thorough and relaxed and extremely nuturing about my surgery. My bunionectomy was my first real procedure nd it was fast, comfortable and 99% painless. I was only in some pain the day after my surgery but since then it has been easy going. The office staff is always quick to respond and very friendly. If you need a professional Dr. Nirenberg is the one to see. His colleague is also very good, I will recommend him to everyone.

He is a Excellent doctor. Great bed side manners. I had bad toe and feet problems. I'm no longer in discomfort. I'm always recommending people to him that have problems with there feet and ankles. I just wish he could do other surgeries then that. He's the BEST around here.

Dr.Nirenberg was not horrible but the office staff is VERY unfriendly and the wait times are RIDICULOUS! And today I recieved a bill and they charged a $25 no show fee which I had called and cancelled on their answering machine before my appt. AND they charged $25 late fees for my second billing. They took off the no show charge but not the other because it's their policy. I said I did not know this, she said you signed the paperwork. I told her I would not be returning and she said fine!! Nice

He helped me with my feet and made it so I could walk again without being in constant pain thanks to my nerve pain due to diabetes and my arthritis. He take time with you and does as much as he can to help his patients gain their independent back. I would not be walking if it was not for him.
