Patient Comments (7)
Edwardsburg, MI |
I have a rare condition and Dr. Nukes goes above and beyond to investigate all treatment options. He works closely with the world expert on my condition, he listens and he follows up.
Carmel, IN |
Rude staff, can't get through for appointment or medication refill. Would never recommend this place to anyone! Beware
Greenwood, IN |
Dr. Nukes is by far the most incompetent neurologist I've ever met. My last appointment involved waiting an hour and a half in the exam room for him to spend five minutes with me. He is insensitive, and unknowledgable of my condition. Despite every test, MRI, EEG, operation, visit, and medication I have ever taken sitting in a folder on his lap. He ends every appointment with, "Good luck."I do not trust him and will never return to his office.
Chicago, IL |
Office and bathroom is dirty. There are stains on the floor. I am wondering is somebody is checking the cleanliness of the office.
in Westfield, IN |
Dr. Nukes was very thorough in his examination and showed genuine concern in dealing with my problem. His dedication was instrumental in identifying the cause of my mini stroke and identifying the next stages of my treatment.
in Indianapolis, IN |
Purposefully misdiagnosed me to receive pay off from workman's comp insurance by getting me back to work sooner. He was insensitive, impatient, and condescending. In spite of well known facts about concussions such as their symptoms and that they do not show up on typical head scans, he used that as 'proof' to ship me back to work which worsened my condition. Thankfully 2 competent doctors, including one state appointed one, recognized my severe concussion. Recovering now, no thanks to this man.
in Anderson, IN |
Dr. Nukes has been treating me for several years, post stroke. He is very thorough and knowledgeable and takes the time to explain things to me. I appreciate his attention to detail and his genuine concern for me as a patient. He is quite simply an outstanding Physician and a good man.
