Review for Dr. Pinak Shukla, MD

I switched to Dr Gosnell after using previous doctor for 30 years. Myself and my family are very excited to have Dr Gosnell. She is very thorough and takes the time to explain her diagnosis. This is something I had never experienced. She cares about her patients and wants them to feel better.

If you don't mind him sitting a week on a positive cancer report. Then you have to call him to get the results. Go to this guy then.

How is he still practicing into his 80s? Nice and conversant, but seems old school. Clinic is outdated but staff is fairly nice.

Review for Dr. Gabriel Godina, MD

He has a horrible bedside manner! He spent the entire appointment on a different issue than I was seeing him for. Go to an Orthopedic doctor in Kearney or elsewhere!

in Colby, KS - Jul 27 2017

Review for Dr. Burt McKeag, MD

Knows nothing about my heart, all what he cares about is placing a stent in my carotid vein. I kept telling him I have been having chest pain, all what he cared about was placing that damn stent in the neck. I ended up having a heart attack and I moved to another cardiologist.

Kearney, NE - Jul 07 2017

Review for Dr. Richard Markiewicz, MD

He saved my keister. If you have any sinus issues, I highly recommend him. I wasted my time with GP's who didn't care about my issue or offer any resolution. One visit with Dr. Simpson, and I was scheduled for surgery and on the road to recovery within a few months. I can't thank him enough.

Jun 25 2017

Review for Dr. Roger Simpson, MD

Pushed right away to do spine stimulator, did procedure with little to no relief. Was told on my last visit "You need to stop feeling sorry for yourself." I appears that now that he has made his money off of me, my pain is just in my head and my quality of life is no longer a concern.

Dr Nelluri is such a great heart doctor. He is very personable and wants to make sure you understand what he is going to do. Afterwards he comes in to make sure you feel good and lets you know what he found and what he did or didn't do. I would recommend him highly.

I really like Dr. Koduri! He knows what he is doing! He is very kind and compassionate! He is very busy, which can be frustrating, but what Doctor isn't? My mom is a RN and works tons hours beyond hours each week, so I know how the that industry goes. 10+ thumbs up for Dr. Koduri! Thank you!
