Dr. Nerheim gets 1 star for ordering the appropriate tests. She lacks elsewhere. I explained to her my issues gaining/maintaining my weight my whole life. The morning of my appt I was rushed getting my kids fed/ready & grabbed a quick cheese stick and granola bar for myself. Dr. Nerheim wrote “claims she can’t gain weight but only had cheese stick for breakfast.” -as if that particular morning reflected my whole life. Unprofessional appearance- hair so greasy I could have fried an egg.

Dr Nerheim had terrible bedside manners and her jokes about heart failure were disgusting. She is also full of herself and walked into the room spewing solutions before she even reviewed the case. Spent 4 days in the hospital and left with no specific answers or specific plan of attack because she didnt care about our questions and the condition has not improved. Go to someone else!
