Patient Comments (6)
in Denver, CO |
Andy Nemechek is the best doctor on the planet. He is an amazing surgeon and a compassionate human being. He treats every patient like he would treat his grandmother. He saved my life and I am grateful for everyday. I would not wish oral cancer on my worst enemy but if you have oral cancer then you should be treated by Dr. Nemechek and his amazing group.

Excellent diagnostician and surgeon. Excellent communicator. Exceptional follow-up.
Englewood, CO |
Dr. Nemechek thoroughly reviewed my medical history and indicated that he wanted to manage all of my healthcare. I have never felt so at ease or confident with a physician. I had an MRI last week and Dr. Nemechek personally called me today, Memorial Day, to review the results. He is truly one of a kind and I am very blessed to be under his care.
Englewood, CO |
When I found a lump in my neck and had a biopsy, I was referred to Dr. Nemechek due to his experience and expertise in thyroid cancer. He took the time to explain to me what was happening to my thyroid. He returned my phone calls promptly to answer all of my questions. Before my surgery he spent time with me to go over my procedure and what to expect afterwards. I felt like I was his only patient. He took very good care of me.

I had Thyroid Cancer. Dr. Nemechek was thoughtful throughout the process. 8 years later I'm still cancer free.
in Littleton, CO |
My PCP referred me to Dr. Nemechek for thyroid cancer. I did not know I was supposed to tell Nemechek where the cancer had metastasized. The ultrasound reports showed cancerous areas in the center and right side of the neck. Nemechek did not read the reports and did not talk to the PCP and instead operated on the center of the neck and for no medical reason, doing a dissection of the left side off the neck where there was no problem. He left a very ugly remnant on the left side of the neck.
