“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.”

“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.”
