Great Surgan, I went in for an appendectomy, he came in explained everything super well and did a fantasic job doing the surgery. I really would recommend him for anyone I know who has an appendicitis.

Very thorough exam. Didn't want to just rush in to surgery. Listened to what I had to say and explained things clearly.

Horrible experience. I am in sever pain and was able to get an appointment with Nirmalan and was considering going to the emergency room or seeing him. I decided to see him instead. He would not listen to me and said I should be on medication for 2 weeks and seen again. I kept telling him I am in...more
