I was admitted to the hospital three times over the course of five weeks due complications from an autoimmune disease. Dr Dhir was called in specifically by my wonderful team of doctors to perform surgery on my abdomen. She was amazing -- she was kind, thoughtful and patient with both me and my family during what was a very scary time. Her care helped to put me on the long road to recovery after over 3 wks in the hospital. I couldn't have done it without her. Thank you...

Thank you Dr. Nisha Dhir for your tremendous skill in performing my umbilical hernia repair. Your talent and caring manner is a credit to the medical profession. She is so attentive, understanding, accommodating, and personable which is a quality combined with such expertise that is rare. My recovery process was so easy. I would recommend her to everyone and have been since my first consultation for anyone seeking a general surgeon and I would wait any length of time to see her.

Dr Dhir has operated on me three times, most recently for an emergency appendectomy. Since I had such a great experience with her on the prior two occasions, I requested that she do the surgery. Despite the fact that it was her day off and there were others in her practice who were already there at the hospital and ready to operate on me, she dropped what she was doing and came in to do the operation. It was quick, successful, and I have had an outstanding recovery. Dr Dhir is amazing.
