How likely are you to recommend Dr. Nitzkorski?

(Select your rating)
Thorough and Personable, puts what’s important for the patient above all things. Sensitive and explained my rare cancer and was with me every step of the way and even after almost five years cancer free he is still with me and follows up on all my scans. The surgery he did on my thigh to remove a sarcoma cancer left me with full use of my leg and he personally sewed it up, instead of using staples and you can hardly see the scar! Highly recommended, you want him in your corner and in your surgery room!
