Dr. Nilavar has always been nice and patient with me and explaining my disabilities to me in a way that I understand and I really like that about him. Most of my Dr 's just rush through the appointment and do not care how I feel. He does and that makes him number one in my book. I am thankful for Dr 's like him.

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? [...]

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.
