Patient Testimonials

Doctor Craig Nemechek was incredibly nice, explained everything and an excellent surgeon! I’m exceptionally happy with the whole experience even though it was a surgery & pleased with my care. Thank you to Dr. Nemechek and staff!!

Excellent surgeon. Patiently and respectfully answered our questions. Consulted and partnered as a team with Dr. Abraham on a complicated surgery. Both surgeons continued to provide excellent on-going care throughout the hospitalization period. I appreciated their multidisciplinary and team approach and the care, kindness, and respect they gave to our loved one and our family during this extremely scary time.

Top notch care from Dr. Nemechek and his staff at CNOS and through surgery at Dunes Surgical Hospital. I felt confident about the procedure as well as recovery.
