in Wichita, KS |
Dr sent me for a steriod injection and told me to make a followup appt after it was done, tried to do that today, he's gone, no warning, no nothing! I am so upset....I am probably going to have to start this whole ordeal over again...I can't say enough about how upset I am!

I would love to give him more but he resigned. No warning just poof. Just a tad over a week before my surgery. I'm really unhappy.

Dr. Nienke has treated me since 2014. He spends time explaining all treatment options and makes sure you understand the potential for success and the risks. He won't give up until he finds a way to give you the best pain relief available. His PA John is just as caring and skilled with patients. All of his staff are excellent. I was referred to a neurosurgeon for consultation and left his office knowing that there was no way I would allow anyone but Dr. Nienke to treat me.
in Derby, KS |
Dr. Nienke has treated me with the upmost respect, something I find less and less of now a days. Additionally, his staff as well as himself, spends as much time as you need to understand what is going on with you, your treatment options, as well as after the procedure, visiting you on a daily basis that really makes you feel that they are there for you. His staff is readily available for any and all questions, and never once did they give me the feeling that I was being a "pain".
