I was diagnosed in the hospital emergency room with a severely infected gall bladder. The hospital contacted Dr Nemechek and he rushed down and removed the gall bladder that evening. He has a reputation of being an excellent surgeon, especially for laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Excellent surgeon. Patiently and respectfully answered our questions. Consulted and partnered as a team with Dr. Abraham on a complicated surgery. Both surgeons continued to provide excellent on-going care throughout the hospitalization period. I appreciated their multidisciplinary and team approach and the care, kindness and respect they gave to our loved one and our family during this extremely scary time.

During a very scary time in my life, I felt very calm and confident in Dr. Nemechek. He has an amazing personality, is very thorough and really took the time to get to know me and my case. His confidence and knowledge in explaining my case to me and my spouse was very comforting. Dr. Nemechek made sure he answered all of our questions. He and his staff are very professional and caring and deliver superior care in every aspect, from the initial meeting, surgery, & follow-up visits.

I have been very pleased with Dr Nemecheck. He has been very good explaining my surgery and follow up care. I have been seen in the relatively new Brest care clinic and have received excellent care by all involved.
