I felt that I had to add a review here despite the fact that I haven't even seen the guy yet. Odd you may think, but this review is entirely based on the way I am being treated after referral, but before any appointment. A good doctor he may be, I have yet to find out, but there are issues here that must be addressed. His staff are extremely unhelpful and offhand when you speak to them. After referral, you don`t get a confirmation or an appointment, you get nothing! You don`t hear until an appointment is offered and the waiting list is longggg. They just don`t appreciate that the patient may be very anxious and suffering. To hear nothing from them is to feel abandoned and uncared for. Even though my doctor has phoned them to say my case deserves some urgency, even though I am in constant pain every day and almost unable to eat, NO PRIORITY has been assigned to my case and they have still not contacted me. It is disgraceful. For that fact and for that alone, this review is based.
Dr. Nestel is professional & thorough. I had been in Nova Scotia for over 2 years with no treatment for my hemochromatosis (it requires 4x a year phlebotomies). I was becoming very anxious because of my family doctor's reluctance or inability to get me the treatment I needed. Finally, she referred me to Dr. Nestel, and I now get the treatments I need. During every treatment, he drops by to ask if I have any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Nestel.
Gave the best and most thorough exams- more thorough than my GP. Kind and patient, not rushed and very knowledgeable. He tended to me over 12 years ago when I was in ICU and again a couple of years ago for a scope. I would highly recommend him.
Wow, there is a reason why everyone has put 5's across the board. Dr. Nestel is amazing. I wouldn't be alive without him. My condition definitely tested his abilities and knowledge and thanks to him I have never felt better. He was always available and would do anything to fit me in. I can't thank him enough, and I would recommend him to anyone. He is the best.
