Patient reviews for Dr. Nikhil Waingankar
Overall my visit was excellent. Everyone was polite and friendly and Dr. Waingankar was outstanding. He took his time with me asked lots of questions and he was very informative. I will highly recommend him to family and friends.
The staff and the doctor were great! I took my dad here to get a follow-up after elevated PSA levels. The doctor was charming, sweet and tolerant with my dad despite his Alzheimer's. He explained the prognosis and options in a very warm and friendly manner.
he was awesome. Very patient, listened and knowledgeable about my issue. Gave me good alternative advice, rather than forcing prescriptions on me. would recommend him for anyone
Great doctor, understandable wait time.
Dr. Waingankar is a very affable and professional. He identifies and solves problems, properly. Thanks Dr for the help and clearing out all my doubts
Really liked him and was easy to talk to. Explained everything clearly.
Dr. Wainganker has an excellent bedside manner. He looks directly at you when speaking to you, he explains everything in easy-to-understand language, and I found him very reassuring. I was a bit nervous about my condition, but he really calmed me down by telling me that I had nothing to worry about.
I was referred to this doctor by my PCP (in the same office) for a chronic issue. He did not perform any of the diagnostic tests that my PCP told me to expect, and basically told me that there was nothing to be done but take medication indefinitely. He prescribed a medication that has serious side effects without discussing the side effects or the other options with me first.
Professional and courteous
