Dr. Nanavati and his staff are wonderful. I had carpal tunnel surgery in my right hand in 2015 and did well. I just had my much needed left hand done this past Friday and the Doctor was so kind and very reassuring. He replaced my 78 year old father's shoulder 3 years ago and he did great. You are in very kind capable hands with Dr. Nanavati and Mercy Hospital!!!

WARNING: If you see this dr (or any dr located at Mercy hospital), and he does any type of procedure, you will basically be charged twice (once by the dr, and again by the hospital). I waited almost 2 hours in the waiting room, and saw the dr. for less than 15 mins. At that time, he aspirated a cyst in my finger Less than 1 month later, the cyst is already coming back and I am out over $500 out of pocket (I was charged twice for an "operating room", x-rays, a surgical procedure, etc.)...

I was kept waiting in his offic for over two hours. I understand emergencies arise, however, the lateness was not addressed. He spent a total of less than 5 minutes with me and was very short-tempered.
It is with sadness that I read this review. I never wish for any patient to feel shorted by their visit. We do our best to accommodate every patient's need. I do not recall ever spending only 5 mins with any patient in my 11 years in practice; but I am sorry this was the experience they perceived. We do run late at times as we are trying to give our patients the time they need. What may be viewed as short tempered is often honesty; still, I apologize to this patient for their experience.

My Son went to Dr Nanavati because of a High School Football injury. He had surgery by Dr Nanavati followed by intense Physical Therapy for several months. He returned to football the following season and was 100% back to his pre injury status as Dr Nanavati stated he would be. He had an awesome season and was published as one of the TOP TACKLERS in the state of PA by a College Sports Magazine. He is pursuing a career as an Army Ranger thanks to the OUTSTANDING SURGICAL PERCISION & CARE THANKYOU

Excellent physician, but does not tolerate his staff being shown any disrespect. He expects you to follow his instructions for the benefit of the best outcome. He focuses totally on your issue (s) and your recovery.

In addition to my perception of his having the requisite medical knowledge and expertise for a severely broken forearm at the wrist, as the operation was very successful, I felt his people skills before, during, and after the operation, including follow-up visits, was excellent.
