Patient Comments (2)

After months of failed conservative treatments I was referred to Dr. Nakken by his Assistant for surgery. I had to wait over a month for Dr. Nakken to review my case for surgery at which time Dr. Nakken scheduled me to see him I am obese, this has been well known for the entire time of treatment....more

I saw Dr. Nakken recently while on vacation in Utah. He was kind, informative, and made room for me on his surgery schedule on short notice. His staff was wonderfully kind and helpful as well.
