Patient Reviews (3)
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.
