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.

He always makes you feel very important and welcomes more information about recent visits to other professional doctors and surgeons. I feel that I can trust any options that he recommends to me and my wife. He is very personal and makes you feel comfortable while in his office. A very nice Doctor!

I’m not one to write reviews but I am so grateful to have found Dr. Nietrzeba, he truly cares and didn’t give up on me in finding a diagnosis and treatment for the issue I was having. Most doctors seem to want to push you off when test come back normal but Dr. Nietrzeba didn’t, he knew there was an underlying issue and his persistence gave me hope and he spent the time to listen. I’m still under his care, in treatment and have better breathing - less cough days . I would highly recommend Dr. Nietrzeba.

I would give 0 stars if I could because he waited 2 months to call me with my CT scan results even after I called the office multiple times. He acted like it was no big deal that he waited so long to call me back. As a former cancer patient, that is unacceptable as there’s always risk of cancer returning. If you want to live, choose another doctor.
