I cannot say enough good about Dr. Nuako and his staff! They are all so knowledgeable and very caring! They make me feel right at home!
in Martin, TN |
Very professional. Office is run like a well-oiled machine. All of his staff are professional and friendly. Appointments are kept ON TIME, unusual for a physician these days. Takes his time, answers all of your questions completely. Highest recommendation possible. I had a colonoscopy and did the modified prep. It's worth it. You don't have to drink all of that awful goop. The insurance won't pay for it ($65 out of pocket), but I will do it again.
