Just saw Dr. Nair , worst experience in my life. He was yelling at me telling me that I'm faking the fact I can't raise my left knee/leg from the seated position. My lower back has been bad for five years and lower for one year, and he says it should clear itself up in a couple weeks?!?! I saw all his bad reviews online and now I know why. This man is horrific. He is a nightmare. Man that was a horrible experience to get chastised and yelled at like a child. Very unprofessional.

I have never met such a rude and disrespectful doctor in my life. This guy would not explain any of his conclusions to me, he actually got angry at me and started raising his voice when I asked questions about his findings. He was extremely unprofessional, left the exam room door open the entire time, so his entire office could hear him yelling. He threatened to kick me out of his office for replying to what he said, because "he wasn't done speaking" you just talk so slowly I thought u were done
i dont even give this creep 1 star he preformed brain surgery on me and left me with a knot on my head the size of a grapefruit and said lets watch it for a year 6 months later i was at another hospital in another state with another surgoen who waas to correct his mistake only to find out my left bone flap had an infection on it and had we waited any longer it would of spread to my brain and killed me he is a worthless creep and deserves to lose everything he is a creep i wish him misery in life

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
