Patient Comments (5)
If you have a cold or something not terribly complicated them you will probably be fine in Dr. Nestor's care. However, anything outside of that I would not advise stepping foot in her office. My mother's health suffered exponentially under her care. We could have handled her prickly bedside manner if she was able to back it up with the level of care necessary to take care of her patient.

Extremely poor service, never responsive with long term prescription refills, office staff not service-oriented. No consideration for patient experience.

My mother had a massive stroke about 8 weeks ago.She received pretty good care at Skyline and was making some progress.But when they decided to move her to a nursing home Dr Nestor became her doctor. She started going down hill fast under her care.She had a severe cut on her leg that wasnt properly cared for by Dr Nestor. We were told that she wouldnt come out to the nursing home because there wasnt enough patients there for her to bother with.My mom ultimately died under her care.

After a stroke, my grandmother was in ICU and when told Dr Nestor we were having a feeding tube put in, she asked why and stated that that would be no quality of life. Later, when my grandmother was moved to rehab, she got an infection and was running a fever. Dr. Nestor refused to even put her on antibiotics until a week later (labwork still showing infection) when we called the office and demanded to know why she wouldn't start antibiotics. Shockingly unprofessional and uncaring!

My mom had a major stroke about 6 weeks ago and was transferred to a nursing home. Nestor did not visit her except one time while she was there. She did not treat her leg wound properly and it became progressively worse. Also, when I spoke with her on the phone about my mom's condition..she said well after all she is a good 85 year old indicating she has already lived enough. I do not recommend her for a doctor.
