Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Nagorney did a liver resection on my husband July 2017. Doctors in San Diego said that it could not be done, and if attempted he would die of liver failure. 3.5 years later my husband is doing well. He did have one distant metastasis that was treated with immunotherapy and proton. We owe his life being saved to Dr Nagorney. He is an amazing surgeon.

Dr. Nagorney performed a liver resection on my mother five days ago. He completed a surgery that Nebraska doctors said could not be done. He successfully removed multiple cancerous lesions. We will be eternally grateful for his skill and expertise. He gave my mom her life back.

In 2000 i was transferred from a small town in Arkansas via ambulance to the Mayo Clinic. Dr Nagorney performed a liver resection as well as partial removal of my diaphragm. My diagnosis was malignant germ of the liver, it is now 2018 and I remain cancer free. I’ve not made it back to Rochester Mn to tell how thankful that God used him to save my life and for that I am eternally grateful!! Thank you so much Dr Nagorney, you are truly the best!!

Did an excellent job with a splenectomy and post operative care. Be aware that he does not use nurse communicators during surgery and does not typically communicate with the person accompanying the person being operated on immediately before, during, or immediately after surgery. I was told by Mayo Clinic that nearly all of their surgeons do. So if you're accompanying someone for a surgery with Dr. Nagorney, know that no news is good news. That will save you a lot of potential stress.
