    • “Dr. Nevins and his staff have been exceptional in their care of me. I was made very comfortable with everything that my surgery would entail. I appreciated his honesty and, most of all, his humor. Though it has been painful, the whole experience of my knee replacement has been excellent. The staff of physicians, PAs, medical assistants, office staff, and physical therapists have been kind, considerate, and full of humor. I am very grateful to everyone. I have already recommended Desert Orthopaedic Center and its staff to several of my friends and family. Thank you so very much.”
