Caution

He talks a lot of hype if you are the type of patient that falls for this go see him. If you are a patient that would like to be heard and diagnosed correctly seek other MD. Not doing much surgery lately another red flag. Always wants to do cysto on every patient no matter what diagonoses...$$$ for him. Beware......

Outstanding physician

Dr. Nellessen recently performed a partial nephrectomy on me. During my subsequent hospital stay Dr. Nellessen was there every morning, including Saturday and Sunday, to make sure my recovery was on schedule. He is a first-rate Urologist and surgeon.

This doctor has taken care of me for years. He listens carefully to my concerns and works with me to find the right solution for me personally. I am not big into medication and although it is a necessary part of getting well, he always takes my concerns into account when prescribing. He is a very caring physician.

Terrible

I used to see this guy, but thank God I swtiched. I believe he is NOT very ethical, and tries to get patients to agree to procedures that are not necessary, but make HIM a lot of money.

He really cares

Dr. Nellessen really cares about his patients. When a cancer diagnosis is made, he spends literally hours in consultation with the patient, discussing all the options in detail. He encourages you to look at the options too, doesn't just push surgery.
