Lake Worth, FL |
The doctor was 2 hours late for my appointment. He has no personality and his suggestion was to live with my pain. He did not offer any medications to help with my pain. Don't bother going it is a waste of time and money

He is the most honest and trustworthy doctor I have ever met. He is patient and explains everything CLEARLY before hand. He helped me as much as he could.

Dr. Nair was supposed to fix my L4-S1 herniated discs & spinal stenosis. When I woke up from surgery I was in the same pain I was in when I went under. He yelled at me and told me I was being ridiculous and I would be fine... After months of trying to find another dr that would see me, I found out there were still large portions of the herniated discs that were still there. Don't waste your time or money on such a horrible person.

I do not have a bad thing to say here. He told me all that I needed to know. His info as to the recovery process was spot on. I am recovering nicely and will be completely recovered I'm sure in maybe a months time, Barring anything unforeseen. This Dr's competency can not be refuted. No doubt why he is/was associated with 11 facilities and won 2 awards. Nothing is perfect. Perhaps office time is at a premium and personal time is a bit short. He did call me back from his personal cell phone once

I swear the reviews here must be from staff and friends as compared to all other site reviews about this Dr, these somehow seem to go completely in the opposite direction of all other sites reviews. Look into: www.vitals.com and see real and honest reviews and avoid this so called dr. at all costs but PLEASE, for your own safety, read the review son that other site as wellas the many other sites as again, this is YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR SAFETY and this site has to be rigged with these false reviews
