I would absolutely avoid Dr. Stephan Nuccion A surgery he did on my 14 year old daughter permanently damaged her growth plate. He also attached an allograft in an incorrect location. My poor sweet kid had to have another surgery and the damage done to her growth plate may affect her for the rest of her life. She may need many more surgeries due to this man. On top of that, when I confronted Nuccion with what I had discovered, he made up a story that was not in the operation report. He also kept saying everything was going to be fine when other Doctors said the opposite. He crams too much in on surgery days which opens the door to horrible mistakes. I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere for a doctor.
This doctor is what every doctor should be. He is as caring as he is professional. I had my first surgery with him in 2004 and again in 2006. Here it is 2016 and he is the same caring, professional and patient doctor as he ever. He listens and explains in detail every step of the way. He talks with family and always has his staff if not himself get back to you. I just called his office the day after my surgery and received a call back in 30 minutes. This doctor did knee and shoulder surgeries for me and is the best in the South Bay. He also did my son's shoulder surgery and it went fantastic. Highly recommend with smiles.
Was injured at work and went to Dr. Nuccion after he was recommended by my normal doctor. Told him I was injured at work and it didn't seem to be a problem. Went through surgery (which was a success) and started physical therapy. He was very nice up and until the claim went to workmans comp. once he found out he had to fill out the report to finish the claim, he dropped me as a patient. I had to find another doctor to finish off the workmans comp report. Never again. The physical therapy portion of the business is top notch, not Dr. Nuccion. Be warned !
I have now had 5 knee surgeries with Dr. Nuccion. He is the best. This doctor called me from his home phone around 8:00PM the night before my first major surgery to ask if I had any questions or concerns. Now what doctor would do that or care this much that you're comfortable? He is always plesant to work with and I believe he cares and he is not just about the money. He even did my 2nd major knee surgery on Christmas Eve 3 years ago and it was a scheduled surgery not an emergency surgery. I would recommend this doctor to all.
