    Dr Nick K cares! If he's running a bit behind he will apologize several times and let you know he'll do his best to not do that again. But he also takes his time with you and doesn't rush you. Dr Nick wants to make sure you understand everything he is trying to explain to you.

    All of the staff was excellent. My nurse put in a painless IV line. She was cheerful and helpful. The Anesthesiologist gave the perfect amount and held my hand during injections . That was extremely kind. Dr. Karvelas was very efficient and gentle with the injection. It was a positive experience.

Shortly after MRI we discussed the problem and he created a plan for recovery. Can’t thank him enough for professionalism and dedication to resolve the problem.

    Dr. Nicolas Karvelas (physiatry) & his Medical Assistant, Haley, are warm, kind, caring, & compassionate. I never hesitate to keep all monthly therapeutic injection appointments, which are very challenging. Haley always greets patients with a smile & goes to great lengths to ensure the accuracy of my extensive medications list (Thank You, Haley for your dedication!). I am always relaxed by her calming demeanor. Dr. Karvelas is an awesome physiatrist! He never forgets to knock on the door prior to entering the room. Patients are greeted with "Good Morning/Afternoon" & a respectful, yet charming, slight bow. It instantly diverts my attention from the challenging monthly treatments I am there for. He not only listens; he actually hears, then acts accordingly. His instructions are clear. I always leave the office well educated, with all questions asked & answered. Each appointment has been a great experience & I believe that our treatment plan has been executed for the best possible outcome. Thank You, Dr. Karvelas & Staff, for all your hard work & professionalism; I would, without hesitation, recommend you to family & friends.

    Dr. Karvelas and his staff are amazing! Dr. Karvelas listened to my son's concerns, asked lots of questions to get a complete picture, and did a thorough exam, explaining everything beforehand. After the exam, he discussed with us what he suspected the issue is, but wanted to be sure that nothing got over looked, so ordered further testing. Bottom line...we left there feeling like our concerns had been heard and feeling confident that we would get the answers we have been looking for.

    Superb physician! He is skilled at what he does. Dr Karvelas is very thoughtful towards the patient and the staff that work with him, both in the office and the hospital setting. Perhaps you have persistent back and leg problems as I did. You're not looking for surgery but would like to know the most likely diagnosis and possible treatment options that might include back injections. Dr Karvelas is thorough in his review of your old records and Xray and MRI reports. He is prepared to see you on your first visit. He will think through your problem with you and order appropriate tests and see you again and discuss the options. When treatment time comes and if you need a back injection, you'll find him to be very talented and experienced and he talks you through your anxiousness as he does the procedure. Highly recommended Physiatrist.

    Over the top in all categories. They START with phenomenal medical application and the frosting on the cake is perfection of patient care. And on top of that is unmatched, industry leading customer service. I’ve always said that instead of buying boats and condos, the surgeons are investing in patient care. Dr. Nicholas K. is the best. Going to miss RN Jon when he retires (January 2024). Hard act to follow. Maybe call up Rodney Dangerfield. I’m thinking that the main reason I never remember the most uncomfortable parts of the back injections is because I’m TRYING to forget the jokes. 😁 Seriously — God bless you guys. What a team. I hope you are all born again because I want to spend eternity with people like you. And thinking on the alternative for your eternal souls is too difficult to bear. 1John 5:13.

    I couldn't be more grateful to Dr Karvelas and SNDC. I don't want to sound dramatic but, I was at the end of my rope before I was referred here. SNDC listens, cares, examines, advises, and treats. The injections Dr Karvelas does for me actually work. I don't know what he does thats better than other places I've been but the relief I get when he does it is a comfort. I also didn't just get treatment and sent out the door, I've been talked "with" about weight, and anti inflammatory foods. Asked if PT works or is it just a waste of time... I get some kind of exam with every visit and films are updated when needed and not when they're unnecessary. Dr Karvelas and SNDC saved my life and gave me as much life and mobility back that I can get with my conditions.

    Each visit with Dr Karvelas or his P.A.'s I'm net with actual concern about my issues. Whether its how I'm able to do things or how I will be doing things, they ask me about them. The care Dr Karvelas gives when I've had questions and especially when I'm getting my shots is evident by how he explains what he's going to do each step of the way and when I might feel the benefit of it. I also find Dr Karvelas and Dr Joves' youtube video's helpful and they cover many subjects in their area. It has information on some things I can do, or try, that might help me and you can search them on the subject you might be interested in. I'm so glad I found Dr Karvelas and SNDC.
