What People Say About Dr. Ruben Niesvizky, MD

He's the leader in the Multiple Myeloma field, speaks to you with intelligence, confidence and hope. He had a sense of responsibility to the community and does speak at conferences often. Anyone complaining about that is simply being selfish. This is a rare disease and the more knowledge is shared, the more that lives are saved or extended. My mother has lived 18 yrs with MM because of doctors like Dr. N. I'm not sure why some folks had negative experiences. Can't ever please everyone.

First couple of visits ok but overall not impressed compared to other docs I've met with about this difficult disease. Standard doctors and not worth the trip to NYC. Smaller office which I thought I would like for comfortable and ease but I work and office manager very nasty the one time I came after 4pm. But who works for someone that allows you to leave twice weekly at 3pm? Luckily I found a more suitable and professional group not far from them.

He is never around, always lecturing but that doesn't help me! After I was diagnosed and ended up there too late I found out the trial meds not up to par with other nearby institutions but he does show up when it comes to trying to get me on one of his! The office always seems to be unorganized with a manager that has a bad attitude but a phony sweet voice when answering the phone. You constantly over here her and the secretaries insult and make fun of people. Trust me, go elsewhere!
