Ratings for Dr. Thomas M. Niederman
If I could give no stars to this Dr. or his staff I would. He is a terrible oncologist resulting and participating in my mother's death. She believed that he was her savior and he was her killer. If you or your loved one value their life do not go to this doctor.
I was hesitant to use him for my Uncle's cancer, and I wish I followed through with my gut instincts. I truly believe that his "chemo cocktails" we're too strong and ultimately took my Uncle's life far sooner than we ever could have anticipated. I wish I had a second opinion done. Besides my lack of trust in his decisions, I also did not like his attitude and found him to be extremely rude. Would no recommend.
Dr. Neiderman started off as a very attentive and knowledgeable oncologist; however as time went by, he started to neglect my mom and rather than using the proper chemo treatments, he opted for more expensive and more dangerous treatments which unfortunately led to the demise of my mom's health. We had been told that this doctor was among the best in the area and thus never second guessed him until he no longer accepted my mom's insurance and we were forced to find a different oncologist; this new oncologist questioned the type of chemo drugs that Dr. Neiderman used on my mom and stated that these drugs were not suitable for my mom and would do more damage than good. Unfortunately it's too late for my mom, but I plead to anyone who is being seen by this oncologist to seek a second opinion prior to getting any treatments from this jerk. He may think he knows everything, but don't be fooled by his talk; all talk, no action!
He started out as a wonderfully attentive doctor who seemed quite genuine in his concern. That's how he gets you to become his patient. However, he began to make terrible decisions for my mother's treatment. I consulted other caretakers of patients with similar cancer and they all told me to change doctors. Our family became very nervous and finally questioned him as to why my mom was deteriorating, he said he knew best and in other words "he was perfect". I wish I were lying. I think he is the definition of a doctor who has a gods complex. Please stay away and tell everyone you know to stay away!!! We consulted another oncologist and were told directly from him that Dr. Neiderman's treatment plan caused my mom to decline, not the cancer. Unfortunately it is too late for my mom, but please get a second opinion. Do NOT trust what he says because no doctor is perfect, I don't care what he thinks!
One of the worst doctors I've ever come to know. He may very well be the "best" in his field..I'm not challenging that..he has the most horrific bed side manner I've ever seen. Talks to patients like they are idiots. His staff follows in his footsteps..no manners and no personality. I believe this man is on overload and needs to re-evaluate his pratice. He sure proved that to my family.
Excellent Doctor. He gave us excellent recommendations for surgeons and knew the surgeon we choose at Cleveland Clinic. He has a great comforting way with his patients. He actually called us on a Sunday night to give us information! I wish all doctors were as kind, knowledgeable and professional as him.
I met Dr. Neiderman on the day I was told that the best course of action for my father was admission to the hospice program. Sounds like a bad day and it was but Dr. Neiderman made it as acceptable and okay a situation as it could possibly be. The Dr. took time out of his schedule to sit with us in the middle of his office hours, without an appt (he was expecting 1 person and got 4 family members), to explain everything. He fully explained the situation, the prognosis the various options, etc. My brother and I found it amazing to walk out of his office, both understanding the critical situation(which got worse over the course of the day resulting in the hospice admission), the likely prognosis, but not feeling like we were just pummeled. He spent significant time with us later that day to further discuss the status and now lowered prognosis. That is not an easy thing to do - Dr Neiderman's kindness, empathy, time and understanding were well appreciated by all family members.
