Best Family Doctor
“ Dr. Nimeh is the best family doctor around. I've been with him since 2004, and he is always pleasant and listens to my problems. He does not rush you out of the office. He seems to honestly care about each patient. I would never change doctors. If I needed a specialist, he always sent me to someone who is very nice. Thank you, Doctor, for all your help. ”
Carolann H. from Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania
Incredible Office visit
“ Incredible experience with Dr. Nimeh. He took the time to listen to my issues and explained what type of tests needed to be performed. Most doctor visits feel rushed but not with Dr. Nimeh! ”

Care above and beyond expectations
“ I went to visit my PCP Dr. M. Nimeh for my 6 month follow up. He kept feeling around my neck and then asked me if I recently had my thyroid checked, he ordered a Tsh which indicated that I was in hyperthyroidism (I had just about every s/s but attributed to other things) I was referred to Dr. Lakshmi Kannan and had several tests to determine why I was producing so much levothyroxine. I was told I had a rather large nodule on/ near my right lobe of my thyroid. After sitting down with Dr. Kannan to discuss options at length it would have needed to come out despite what a fine aspiration would determine because of its size , so I opted for surgery. I was referred to Dr. Kjellberg who agreed to first remove the r lobe and if pathology showed any cancer we would take the rest out. I was very fortunate, the surgery was successful without post op complications and the nodule was benign. After about a week I started to feel more focused, my eyes seemed to feel better, intolerance of heat was gone. I think back and I seriously thought I was losing my mind, one day so sleepy I couldn’t even pay attention to not being able to sleep for a couple days and very unfocused, I had some intermittent visual effects in which I thought I was going blind. Pending lab work, I may not even need synthroid eventually. Great work, because if I had the whole thyroid out I would need synthroid the rest of my life. Thanks team!!! ”
