I went to see Dr. Nercessian after a fall while I was on vacation. I was seen in his office after I had an Xray done in the same building. My visit with this doctor lasted approximately 5 minutes at which time he did not examine my leg or perform an type of assessment. He missed the fracture of my xray which was clear when I was seen by another doctor in his own practice. He should not be practicing medicine if he does not want to examine patients!!! He does not provide expert care!

If you are an individual that prefers to intelligently discuss your injury and ways of managing it; then this is not the Doctor for you. He is the type that lays down the diagnosis and does not want to discuss it with you so that you can manage the injury in a way that works for your lifestyle.
