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.
