Dr. Nechleba has always been clear and forthcoming about all of my treatments. He is an excellent physician and I trust him implicitly.

October 15, 2019

Dr. Nechleba is compassionate, caring, and extremely knowledgeable professional who always has his patients' best interests in mind.

very comfortable with him, and confident in him

He was friendly and showed a genuine concern for my well being. The only issue I would bring to his attention is that he made the visit feel a little rushed. He would ask me a question and before I could finish my sentence, he was interrupting me with what he thought I was going to say. Like he was trying to hurry me along because I was taking to long to finish my thoughts and he had other patients to visit or something to do. That threw me off a little and the questions i wanted to ask I forgot to ask them.

I have seen Dr. Nechlaba in the past. He operated on my son's knee, as well as mine. He is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. He is kind, thoughtful, and compassionate. He is also a wonderful and well respected surgeon.

Love Dr. Necluba, always listens well and has good advice to help with recovery from surgery last year, his nurses are great too and what a great view while you are waiting. thanks for asking.

This was an extended visit. Besides checking the lower extremities, ankle and knees, he observed my walking and gait with and without footwear. He recommended a second course of action focusing on the difference in hips, i.e. shorter left leg versus right.
