Dr Nechlaba explained why I would not have surgery right away and to try other courses of action first. I appreciate that he explained other options.

Entire staff & doctor were professional & treated me with respect.

Dr. Nechleba is a kind, caring, and knowledgeable doctor. I have seen him for two different conditions and have been very satisfied. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Dr Nechleba is an excellent surgeon. During my operative experience he and his staff told me what to expect and how to prepare. There were no surprises and I have had an excellent outcome.

Dr. Nechleba had an resident that came in to see me & explained that they were running a bit behind. Dr. Still listened carefully to my questions & addressed all my concerns. Dr. Nechleba arrived shortly & he also was very interested & concerned with my future care.

I think Dr Nechelba (I hope I spelled his name close to being right) is a very good orthopedic

PROVIDER HIMSELF IS A GOOD DOCTOR, WAIT TIME TO SEE HIM THO, ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!!! THREE WEEK WAIT TIME TO BE SEEN FOR AN INJURY. HAD TO GO TO E.R. INSTEAD. THEN STILL HAD TO WAIT THREE WEEKS FOR INJECTIONS. THEN TO TOP IT OFF, AN HOUR AND A HALF WAIT TIME IN OFFICE BEFORE EVEN SEEING DOCTOR - EACH TIME - ALL 3 WEEKS OF KNEE INJECTIONS. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE DISRESPECT OF PATIENT'S TIME.
