Today's appointment with Steve, like all others I've had with him over the past 30 year, was thorough. Steve takes whatever time may be needed to examine me and to review with me the results of tests recently run under his direction. As part of his thorough review, Steve shares with me how those results compare with those of earlier tests. He genuinely solicits any questions I might have, makes certain that I remain current with all other appointments in the medical disciplines relevant to my condition (urology, nephrology, dermatology, oncology),and schedules timely follow-up surveillance appointments including annual colonoscopies. In addition to my medical condition, Steve takes a genuine interest in how I'm faring emotionally & career-wise, especially since the passing of my wife 9/2/2014 who was also a devoted, longtime patient of Steve's. Regardless of the long hours of Steve's workday,& regardless of the day of the week, he returns phone/voice mail calls as promptly as he can. Steve infuses each appointment I have with him with his unique, and very much welcomed, sense of humor.

Dr. Nack makes me feel comfortable under very uncomfortable circumstances. Everyone in the office is so lovely! I like how I'm able to ask questions and concerns without having to feel like I'm asking a dumb question.

I haven't felt better and I really have him to thank.

I was impressed with Dr. Nack's professional manner and attire, detailed review of test results and genuine concern for my health. Dr. Nack recommended a temporary over the counter solution of Pepcid Complete to relieve nighttime heartburn. I followed Dr. Nack's suggestion and I did get relief the first night. He reviewed my list of medications as well as the proper way to take each. Dr. Nack also processed a prescription refill electronically and it is already in my drug plan system. He recommended that I take Vitamin E to help with the fatty liver issue. Dr. Nack personally contacted my heart doctor regarding Vitamin E usage; obtained approval and called my home to let me know it was OK to proceed. Additional blood work was prescribed and a 3-month follow appointment is scheduled.
