I recently saw Dr Nigen for a knee problem that’s been bothering me for some time. It was my first visit to his office and I was extremely impressed. The staff were kind, considerate and quick. I waited for less than5 minutes to get an X-ray and then saw the doctor immediately after. Dr Nigen was extremely professional and easy to talk to. If I have any other knee issues in the future I’ll definitly be coming back to see him.

Dr. Nigen was very knowledgeable and attentive to my issues with my knee. X-rays were done onsite. I was seen with the first 5 minutes after my paperwork was done. Top notch medical office.

You can stop looking, Dr. Nigen is your new orthopedist. I went in with a swollen knee, got Xrays and my knee drained of some fluid on the same (first) visit, and am very happy with the results. The office ismodern, popular but not crowded, well staffed and convenient. Dr. Nigen reviewed the Xrays with me and discussed treatment options. He is very personable and professional. My visit could not have gone any better. While I was filling out the paperwork, one of the staff was helping a patient with poor vision complete their forms, I thought this showed a lot of compassion.
