Dr. Nirenberg is an excellent provider and physician, he was thorough and relaxed and extremely nuturing about my surgery. My bunionectomy was my first real procedure nd it was fast, comfortable and 99% painless. I was only in some pain the day after my surgery but since then it has been easy...more

He is a Excellent doctor. Great bed side manners. I had bad toe and feet problems. I'm no longer in discomfort. I'm always recommending people to him that have problems with there feet and ankles. I just wish he could do other surgeries then that. He's the BEST around here.

Dr.Nirenberg was not horrible but the office staff is VERY unfriendly and the wait times are RIDICULOUS!
