Since becoming a board-certified Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Neurology), Dr. Niman has become a leader and well-known figure in the Chicago veterinary community. He is the author and co-author of several scientific articles published in a variety of veterinary publications, and is an active advocate of continued education for veterinary professionals, lecturing on small animal neurology and neurosurgery topics both locally and nationally.
