I was very pleased with my appointment this time as I had a daughter with me to meet Dr. N. for the first time. He was very accepting of her, shook hands, smiled, answered her questions. He is usually very business like.(I am not complaining).

The Dr. spent more time with me than I had expected. He sat with me and explained my test results in great detail and answered all questions that I had. A number of Dr.s visits that I've had in the past have felt rushed and I left the appointments wondering if something may have been missed or glossed over; surprisingly, I left this office visit feeling comfortable and satisfied.

i have seen Dr Nilaver only the one time for initial exam. He seems very considerate and I am confident in his ability to treat me within his area of expertise. However, he ordered an MRI on the day of the appt on [...] and was told to wait for ins approval before making an appt. It has been 2 weeks now I have not heard from the office. My ins co said it only takes 72hrs for an approval so why is this taking so long? [...]

In all the years I have been seeing Dr. Nilaver - I have found him to be very knowledgable, kind and a very good listener. He always explains how I did in the examinations.

I did not feel Dr. Gajanan was interested in my issues (which have been ongoing). [...]. Over the last year, I have had breast cancer and several after effects of radiation, I've become quite good at understanding these medical issues and take notes during appointments. After meeting with Dr. Gajanan, not only did I feel disrespected, I also felt like he did not help me take steps to resolving the ongoing numbness issues I'm experiencing. He ordered an MRI on my neck, which I did last week and am still waiting for the results. He requested I see him once the results are back. If I receive the same treatment, I will request another neurologist. I have received nothing but outstanding care from everyone at Providence through my entire cancer and recovery process. I was extremely disappointed and upset by the care I received from Dr. Gajanan. I'm sure he's a very skilled neurologist, but I feel like he lacks compassion for the individual.

My provider really respects my intelligence in explaining things. He shows me my exact test results, explains the effective range of blood levels of my medications, and listens to my input as to the need for more or less treatment of symptoms.

I considered this a screening visit to set baseline benchmarks. It was in response to general concerns I've had with my aging process and my family health history. This provider, and in fact, all my Providence medical contacts have been as fine a team/facility as I've had the privilege of trusting with my health.

Front office staff was a bit unprofessional - asking me to wait while they finished eating a bag of chips before she would check me in and again, when checking out, ignoring me until she finished reading her magazine article (not a professional journal). Seemed to be a prevalent attitude in the front office.

He always calls early the next morning whenever I call in the PM. I trust Dr. Nilaver for his compassion and his soft nature is always comforting. He manages most all my tests, MRI's, etc and explains everything even though I have a science - minded mind I have many issues affecting it. He makes many referrals for my healthcare.
