Dr. Michael Nieder is a Senior Member of the Blood and Marrow Transplant Department at Moffitt Cancer Center and Professor of Oncologic Sciences at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. He is also the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program Fellowship Director and the Inpatient Medical Director. Dr. Nieder’s research interests include toxicity reduction and supportive care improvements for patients undergoing transplantation. Dr. Nieder is currently studying the intestinal microbiome in patients undergoing blood and marrow transplantation and is Principle Investigator of a nationally funded trial using probiotics in patients undergoing allogeneic transplantation. Dr. Nieder has many years of experience in bone marrow transplantation of patients with sickle cell anemia. We are currently seeing adult patients with sickle cell disease and will be the first center in Florida to perform these transplants on these patients. Dr. Nieder has used reduced-intensity transplant in adults and children for many years. Dr. Nieder received his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine-Chicago and served a residency in pediatrics, followed by a fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology at The Children’s Memorial Hospital-Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago. Before joining Moffitt in 2012, Dr. Nieder was Medical Director of the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL. He was formerly Vice Chairman of Pediatrics and Medical Director of Blood and Marrow Transplantation at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, OH, as well as an Associate Professor of pediatrics, medicine and oncology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Dr. Nieder is Vice Chair of the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium, Vice Chair of the stem cell transplant discipline for the Children’s Oncology Group and a member of the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy and the State of Florida Bone Marrow Transplant Advisory Committee.

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.Learn more about our patient comments
Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it can be for several reasons, including:
- The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.
- He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
- The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.
