Not the best conversationalist or with the best bedside manner. But, I think he knows what he's doing, unfortunately he doesn't spend more than five minutes with you. Checks the Xrays, points to problem if any, checks the corresponding part on your body then gives you a persciption for physical therapy. Unfortunately that's what you get when the insurance companies rule, so you have to go with the flow. I don't think it would be any different with another physician.
I am still stunned at the condescending, rude, belittling treatment I encountered during my visit with Dr. Nercessian. I had my MRI thrown on the examing table and was told it "was a piece of garbage, I should get my money back, I can't believe you payed for this." There was no examining my knee or how I walked at all. There was no caring in coming up with a future game plan or way to ease my pain and discomfort. I was treated as less than a human and I'm not sure if it was because I was being seen at a clinic. If a doctor feels that the people he is treating are less than human perhaps it is time to stop practicing. I got to see Dr. Nercessian by chance not by a recommendation. I am now urging anyone considering seeing him to really look elsewhere for a competent doctor. His nurse practitioner was equally as bad. The rest to the nurses and support staff were awesome and attentive. I would not recommend him to anyone. If I could give this man negative stars I would gladly do so.
Do not go to see this doctor!!!!! I came with a terrible injure to my knees after an accident. He took a 1 minute look at my x rays and because nothing was broken he dismissed me and told me just to come back in three weeks. No conversation about pain management, no conversation about how to deal with inflammation or physical therapy. He spent a total of 5 minutes with me, never looked at me in the eyes and then I got a bill for $500 !!!!!!
When I was diagnosed with severe arthritis in both hips that only could be remediated with total hip replacements, I turned to my closest friend since high school for advice. He's an orthopedist who's been flawless in his recommendations to my family, other friends and me over the years. Indeed, all the specialists, in various fields, whom he's recommended over the years have been excellent, without exception. He advised me most emphatically to see Dr. Nercessian. This was yet another excellent recommendation. Both surgeries, which took place in the spring and summer of 2014, could not have gone better. Post-op pain was minimal. I felt soreness rather than pain. Thus, no need for opiate painkillers; the occasional Tylenol at bedtime was all that I needed. Pre-op pain and stiffness in my legs and back from malfunctioning hips disappeared immediately after surgery. Incisions healed fully within days. Only cursory post-op PT was needed: 2 in-home sessions after my first surgery, none after the second (though this was due mainly to my being in good condition, and a self-starter regarding the prescribed exercises). Within 2 weeks after each surgery, the newly-repaired leg felt strong and was functioning normally. For several months, I've been back to the full activities that I enjoyed previously. I can walk briskly again (12 minute miles, comfortably) and am back to playing (non-checking) ice hockey. I feel as if the clock has been turned back 15-20 years for me. Friends and neighbors are constantly complimenting me on how much better I look, and how I seem to be improving almost weekly in terms of posture. At my latest checkup, 8 months after the second surgery, Dr. Nercessian was not surprised that I'm feeling great: the X-rays, he said, showed a "textbook" result. He told me to see him next in 2 years. More encouraging yet was his opinion that getting 40 years' use out of my prostheses was entirely possible. To support this, he cited the case of one of his earliest hip replacement patients, who's still going strong, without revisions, after 30+ years. He has been excellent with follow-up. For example, to the surprise of many, he asked me to come in a week after each surgery for him to examine the incisions and remove the surgical staples himself. He's also been a good listener who welcomes questions and answers them cogently. If you don't ask questions, however, he does not seem the type to anticipate what later may be on your mind. Finally, I must add an interesting conversation that I had with a hospital orderly with whom I got friendly during my 2 stays. After 20+ years of seeing various patients come and go at Columbia Presbyterian, she thinks that Dr. Nercessian is tops in his field and would be her own first choice. In particular, she is most impressed by never having seen one of his patients readmitted for treatment of a post-op infection, which is a big problem these days, even in the best orthopedic hospitals. When I asked Dr. Nercessian about this, he confirmed that adhering to the highest sanitary standards is of prime importance to him, and that he takes this very seriously. Indeed, he proudly noted that only perhaps 2 of his 5,000+ hip replacement patients have suffered infections (and the last to suffer a dislocation of the artificial hip joint was over 15 years ago).
