Dr. Nieves and his staff are very friendly and helpful! I have had serious back issues that affect my every day life and I was able to get into Dr. Nieves for help. I don't want to have surgery unless it is a last resort, so the doctor has done everything he can and is still working with me to avoid surgery. His staff is friendly, accommodating, and very helpful. I enjoy going to the office because the facility is very clean and organized. He is an amazing doctor and makes sure you understand what the problem is, what your options are, and how different treatments can help. He has done wonders for my back and is still helping me overcome some obstacles from my injury! I appreciate the staff and Dr. Nieves very much!
