Dr. Nystrom is warm and friendly and a fantastic surgeon. He has done both a hip and knee replacement for me. I had to spend only one night in the hospital and healed with no problems. Home therapy worked well for me. I highly recommend Dr. Nystrom.

Another year another torn meniscus trim. This one took a little longer for the soreness to go away, but the end result is I'm pain free now.

It's been recommended that I have a hip replacement.. I was somewhat surprised and apprehensive because I am only 53. Dr Nystrom sat down with me and my husband on 2 occasions to explain details. He has an outstanding demeanor and a calming effect. After receiving the details of the surgery, I really can't wait to get it over with. I now have little to no apprehension about the procedure. He has excellent patient skills. I'll keep you posted post-surgery

I fell and couldn't get up, called 911, was taken to Oak Hill Hospital, and met Dr. Nystrom. He was the on call doctor at the time and told me I had a broken hip, and could need a replacement, and that I would find out what treatment was once I woke up. Fortunately I didn't need a hip replacement, only 3 screws and three months for recovery. Dr. Nystrom was very efficient, and was on top of my care during the 3 month period. A great doctor with a great bedside manner. So happy he is here.

Dr. Nystrom is a very caring doctor with an excellent bedside manner. He did rotator cuff surgery on me and I never had any postoperative pain. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Nystrom was prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable regarding my problem. He gave me a shot in the knee and resolved my problems.

Dr. Nystrom is the most caring physician that I have ever visited. He did a total knee replacement for me and was always there to answer questions and concerns. Recently I had a shoulder injection and I became dizzy and lightheaded when I left the exam room. He came into the waiting room and sat with my husband and me until I began to feel better. He is a very intelligent doctor and knows how "to fix what ails you". He is also not afraid to recommend another doctor in his practice if need be.

I ended up seeing Dr. Nystrom after a visit to the ER and a visit to their referral. After seeing the doctor that the ER recommended. He sent me to a doctor for surgery that I had to wait 3 weeks for. I was in so much pain and needed something done. I found Dr. Nystrom by accident and I am so glad that I did. He took x-rays and said that I didn't need surgery after all. He fixed me up and his bedside manner is awesome. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Nystrom is an excellent surgeon and impressed me with his ability to explain my options, treatment and prognosis. He performed a partial knee replacement on my right knee. After only a few weeks, I was totally pain-free, able to do all activities (including stairs, walking and golf) better than ever. The scar is well healed and is hardly noticeable already. He is caring, patient and I highly recommend him.
in Homosassa, FL |
I'm a former college football play having had 2 conventional knee operations on my right knee in 1970. I came to Dr. Nystrom for a left knee problem and I was certain he would operate on the knee in the near future. Instead he did a procedure in the office that would possibly rule out a trip to the O.R. I was impressed with his knowledge and demeanor and his attitude of not racing me to the O.R.
in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr Nystrom takes the time to explain exactly what is going on and what the options are,he is very knowledgable !! I would recommend him to everyone !!
in Homosassa, FL |
The only comment I can make is EXCELLENT - EXCELLENT - EXCELLENT. Dr. Nystrom from the very first meeting was very forth coming on what was wrong and how he would fix it. After the operation he met with the person who was with me and gave her any and all the information she asked for. When he came to the room the next morning he again explained all he did and what he expected my recovery to be. A week after the operation at the office he fully went over the operation. EXCELLENT CARE.

Dr. Nystrom was fantastic while evaluating my daughter. He was very friendly, inviting, and made her feel very comfortable and relaxed. He was very knowledgeable about her injury,took his time to explain her injury to us and advised us of our options. We would highly recommend Dr. Nystrom. The office staff was very friendly and answered all the questions I had. If they didn't know they would ask Dr. Nystrom and get back to me.
