SHC Patient, Aug 2015

I LOVE DR. NELLIGAN BUT I always feel like he feels rushed - I don't know why our visits have a pre-set time on them. When I see that, it makes me not want to ask him questions.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

He is a very cool doctor. Knowledgeable caring and sensitive to your needs.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

I met with a medical student first. She was great. Dr. Nelligan didn't seem to really care& just wanted to get to his next appointment.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

I was not prescribed any medications but a medication was used for my minor procedure and Dr. Nelligan did an excellent job reviewing the risks and benefits of the medication and what to do if I were to see the symptoms that he clearly described to me.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

This was the first time I visited my provider and it was a very good experience. I am confident that I received excellent care.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. was in hurry to finish - He didn't check another issue - but he recommended to take more pain killers to alleviate pain. -

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Very pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of the care provider.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

Good.
