  • “I came to Desert Othopaedics as a second opinion choice after my friend recommended Doctor Nevins. Scheduling was easy checking in was also, everyone in the front office was friendly and helpful. I know doctors that spend time with their patients may keep you waiting a little while in the exam room, but it certainly was nothing excessive. The explanations were clear and thorough, and my questions were answered clearly without being condescending. There was no pressure to make decisions.”

  • “Finally, I am taking a moment to reach out to you with heartfelt thanks for giving me "a perfect knee." From the moment we met, I was inspired by our engaging and compassionate manner. I felt at once respected and valued as your patient. As a retired RN, I believe that managed care's age makes it almost impossible for healthcare professionals to practice with these qualities. You will be happy to know that I am overjoyed with the outcomes of the knee replacement. I am so grateful for the returning strength and confidence that allow me to enjoy hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and weight training. Every day I am amazed. Let me encourage you to keep your heart and vision in your practice. You can make a difference in people's lives. Clearly, your practice exemplifies excellence, but what remains uniquely wonderful to me is your ability to express kindness on every level, in every part of my experience with you. Stay well, Dr. Nishiyama. You are a blessing. You truly are incomparable. Warm regards.”

  • “I saw Doctor Walter Song as a follow up for earlier diagnosed and ineffective treatment for tendonitis at another local practice. Doctor Song reviewed my x-rays and immediately confirmed the previous diagnoses. Doctor Song treatment, however, was to inject an area different than that of the earlier injection treatment by the former doctor. Within 24 hours, I had relief, and within one week, I experienced no signs of tendonitis. Kudos to Doctor Walter Song. He should get recognized as a valued addition to the medical staff at Desert Orthopaedic Center and the Las Vegas medical community.”

  • “After another consult, who was wanting to get me into surgery quickly, I saw Dr. Song. He recommended a brace as an initial step to see if it helped before surgery. Well, he was right, it eliminated the pain and may solve the problem w/o surgery! When so many focused on money, some offer care first. I am grateful to Dr. Song for a less invasive alternative! And if the operation becomes necessary, I will only see Dr. Song!”

  • “Dr. Russell Nevins is my hero. He gave me back my life. Several years ago, I fell and broke my hip. I was fortunate enough to have him on call that night at the hospital. He replaced my hip the next day. Little did I know that I would be seeing him again and again in the future. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and my knees were so bad I couldn't stand long enough to prepare my meals. I was getting more and frailer and decided to see Dr. Nevins. He replaced both knees six months apart. All of his surgeries were a complete success. My legs are pain-free. However, I now use a walker outdoors because I'm terrified of falling. Dr. Nevins has a wonderfully warm personality. He is a teacher and an innovator of implants. Thank you, Dr. Nevins!”

  • “I am writing this as a review of the Desert Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Center at 8205 W. Warm Springs. I have been treated at this facility when I had knee pain and shoulder pain. The technicians were attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. I must also mention Megan McKoy, P.T., D.P.T. She was my initial therapist, who I met on my first visit. She spent the necessary time with me to honestly assess my issues and needs. She spoke to me clearly about the steps we would take to ease my symptoms. I felt confident in her expertise, and her treatment worked for me. She is a real asset to the Physical Therapy Center. She also directed the technicians as to my surgery and oversaw them as well. I would also like to mention Vanessa Neubert. She was also instrumental in guiding me through my procedure and was very helpful to me. She had my complete trust and responded to my needs or questions I may have had. She is also very friendly and puts her patients at ease. All in all, my experience was very positive. I do not know if you have an employee recognition program, but I hope the staff knows their hard work doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you and best regards.”

  • “Dr. Nevins answers all the concerns I have, and he always gives his best advice and opinions with the pros and cons of every question. He is sincere and indeed a good doctor to have. He did the total replacement on my right hip, as well as complete replacement on my left knee. I did the steroid shot on my left hip and Euflexa on my right knee.”

  • “Dr. Fontes performed two (2) reverse full shoulder replacements on me within a six (6) month period, and he and his PA, Laura Rodriguez did an excellent job. I am still in PT, and my follow-ups continue, however, I would give Dr. Fontes the highest recommendation available in his field.”

  • “Dr. Miao is an exceptional surgeon. Over the years he has repaired both of my knees and my wife's knee and shoulder. He was very professional and extremely informative of the procedures. There were no surprises, and the postoperative healing was fast and relatively pain-free. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Miao serving our community.”

  • “Seven years ago Dr. Miao was recommended when I experienced shoulder issues. It was determined I had two tears and Dr. Miao recommended PT as a 1st option. Following therapy, I was able to get back into the gym and continue a rigorous fitness program. Fast forward seven years, I began having issues with that same shoulder. After review of the MRI Dr. Miao determined that PT would not be an option. I had a successful surgery. I am extremely satisfied with the results and would highly recommend Dr. Miao.”
