I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Wishnev. I think what I liked best was that she took the time to explain to me my condition and was patient enough to answer all the questions in a language that I could easily understand. She is an excellent doctor with a terrific bedside manner

Q. What prompted you to start Nevada Surgery and Cancer Care? A. Dr. Wishnev and I were members of a different practice that went bankrupt. We were literally out on the street. We had a temporary office within a week and were seeing patients right away. We made a lot of mistakes but both of us learned a lot. I think what really helped us were our reputations. We both had been in town already and had good reputations. I think that is what saved us.

Seeing a proctologist can be an embarrassing experience. Dr Wishnev is one of the rare Las Vegas doctors who actually takes the time to talk to you and who really seems to know what she's doing. It's weird to say my favorite doctor in Vegas is a proctologist, but so far I haven't found many other doctors (of any specialty) that compare. If only they were all this nice and this competent.

In the beginning of 2016 I was in and out of the hospital for months at a time dealing with ulcerative colitis. Due to treatments not calming it down, it came to a conclusion that I would need to have surgery to remove my colon and be given an ostomy bag. Dr. Wishnev performed 3 surgeries on me: giving me the ostomy and then reversing it, all of which were done phenomenally! She's an amazing surgeon and made me feel at ease during & after each operation. She also truly cares about her patients!

My 17 year old daughter had severe ulcerative colitis and thanks to three successful surgeries done by Dr Wishnev, our daughter is finally living a normal life again. Dr Wishnev is one of the most professional and caring doctor Ii have ever met. She is an amazing doctor and would recommend her to anyone who has colon issues!

I have been through diffrent doctors & work in a hospital & see a lot if doctors & know what good bed side looks like. She really is very knowledgeable in what she does. She sat down w/ me & was very thorough w/ her evaluations. She never made me feel rushed (which I have experienced w/ alot of dr for myself & also see w/ my patients and their dr). She also made me feel very comfortable in a very embarrassing uncomfortable situation. She was gentle talk to me step by step upon examination.

Could not have asked for better care in an difficult situation. Dr W worked around various schedules. She attempted less invasive techniques initially. She networked extensively with other doctors related to complications.

As an HIV patient for 3 years. I have seen more than 6 doctors and only one I had a very informative and caring interaction with and that's with Droctor Whisnev. She is, in my book the best. Very caring and straight to the point with companion. Very knowledgable and trust worthy. I have recommended her to my sister and brother. I felt in great and experience d hands. Can't say enough about how great ful I am to have her as my doctor.

Wishnev did an awesome job explaining my daughter's condition, why the surgery was needed, and how it would be performed! She was absolutely, positively remarkable the day of the surgery and I felt my daughter was in beyond capable hands. Her bedside manner was outstanding! She promised to get my daughter patched up and ready to return to college and she delivered. If I thanked her a million times it would never suffice!
