Dr. Qureshi is a very professional and talented neurosurgeon. He will answer all your questions and address your concerns and won’t waste your time. He performed a L5-S1 fusion on me and I’m glad I chose him as my neurosurgeon. Two thumbs up for Dr. Qureshi!

Peter – Sep 02, 2021
As the boat we were riding in crossed the wake of another boat our boat came down hard. In that instant my wife’s back was severely injured. She had sustained a very dangerous L1 burst fracture - and a piece of the shattered vertebra was pressing on the spinal cord. I met Dr Qureshi only just before he performed emergency surgery, on the Sunday of a Memorial Day weekend. As my wife was being prepared for the procedure, Dr Qureshi came out into the waiting room. He explained the injury and the surgical options for this delicate and intricate procedure. He explained his recommendations based on the particular facts of my wife’s case and her particular anatomy. He did so simply and thoroughly, answering my every question with quiet confidence and humility. After the 4 ½ hour surgery, he again took the time to fully review the surgery. While still convalescing, my wife is able to walk and has all her bodily functions. There are no words to express our gratitude.

Excellent doctor, I was diagnosed with brain cancer (astrocytoma type 2 cancer) in 2018 , my surgery was a success, and 3 years later people can't believe I had a surgery of this magnitude. Dr. Qureshi knows what he is doing, he is well prepared and ready to give an honest answer, very informative and provided me with the comfort and all support that I need to continue living life to the fullest.

Eneida Rodriguez – May 21, 2021
Dr. Qureshi performed a spinal decompression on my T3-T4 after I was admitted through the emergency room in 2020. Before surgery, I was barely walking with a cane with balance issues and numbness from my chest down. After surgery and therapy, the improvement has been amazing! Seven months post-op, my walking is almost back to normal, and I am feeling things and sensations I haven’t felt in years. I am still improving. I am thrilled with the care Dr. Qureshi has given me and would highly recommend him. He is very willing to take the time to explain things I did not know about. Dr. Qureshi, thank you for all you have done for me! I can’t tell you how grateful I am to you.

Dr. Qureshi has an excellent bedside manner. Young doctors should observe him to learn the right way to treat patients. He is a great listener and did not rush me through my appointment. Overall, it was a great experience.

Dr. Qureshi performed brain surgery on me in 2021. He explained the situation and the procedure to my husband and me in detail and patiently answered my questions. The care he provided post surgery was equally good. The oncologists that I needed to follow up with all remarked how elegant the surgery was and said that my surgeon had done a remarkable job, especially given the size and location of the tumor that was removed. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Qureshi.

Charles Clark – Jan 22, 2021
Technically top-notch and outstanding person. After seeing a moving article a few years ago in a Chinese language newspaper by a former patient whose complex life-saving surgery was performed by this genius doctor, I was not surprised that my back pain which prevented me from sitting or concentrating on any task was treated precisely and effectively, bringing instant relief. But I was surprised how the doctor took time and interest to answer questions. Like a professor used excellent analogies to explain technical points. The only thing that made him not neurosurgeon-like was his down to earth demeanor. Great man.

Dr. Nazer Qureshi performed my emergency brain surgery in 2019 and has monitored my progress since that time. He is an outstanding physician, and I feel fortunate to have him as my doctor. His knowledge and preparation are most impressive, and he seems to have a photographic memory. Additionally, he is most kind and compassionate; a truly caring doctor with a positive, upbeat bedside manner. I am especially appreciative of his empathy and sensitivity. He has always been accessible and quick to comprehensively answer any questions I have. He works very well with my other doctors. His staff is unfailingly professional, patient and courteous. They treat patients with dignity and respect, and have a friendly demeanor. Questions about appointments and scheduling are answered quickly and clearly. The office works in a smooth and well-organized manner. Both myself and my medical proxies have found Dr. Qureshi and his staff to be wonderful to work with.

WANDA ROSA – Nov 05, 2020
I highly recommend Dr. Qureshi. When I experienced a non-traumatic bilateral subdural hematoma, Dr. Qureshi and his team quickly stepped in to perform surgery and correct the situation. However, beyond his surgical techniques, Dr. Qureshi and the entire team at Princeton Brain, Spine, & Sports Medicine, compassionately kept my wife informed of the situation and calmed her fears. In addition, Dr. Qureshi’s post-surgery follow-up appointments with me demonstrated the same level compassion.
