I was referred to Dr. Nayak after an E.R. visit diagnosed a cancerous tumor in my brain that had spread from a lung. The referring physician called Dr. Nayak "an excellent surgeon with excellent judgment." How right he was. Dr. Nayak is also a strong patient educator - sharing medical information in an understandable way, providing options, listening carefully and being decisive. His post-surgical follow-through was warm and thorough, and both his hospital and office teams are top-notch. He coordinated closely with my other doctors at a high level, keeping me informed the whole way. If you need to put your life in the hands of an outstanding surgeon and a good person, Dr. Nikhil Nayak should be at the top of your list.
