Patient Comments (3)

He is lacks experience in his field. He talks a good game and then leaves his patients with a lifetime of pain and suffering. I just wish I knew this beforehand.

My experience with Dr. Nechtman was absolutely horrible. He told me nothing was wrong with my ears but I went for a second opinion and my ears had a major infection. He was not concerned about my ears and was quite rude and rushed me out. Please look around before you make an appointment.
