Always done a great job for me!

Dr. Nakken has performed operations on me as well as three other family members. He has always been nothing but great to deal with and has shown the utmost of professionalism and courtesy in every way. His skils in all cases were outstanding.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
ZERO people skills

Avoid at all costs, if you are hoping for a doctor that takes time to talk to his patients about their surgeries. Dr Nakken is so full of himself he can't even take a moment to give his patients any information or peace of mind. He wants to be in and out of the room as quick as possible and speak to patients as little as possible
