Luis Nieves, MD

1717 Precinct Line Road, Suite 200B Hurst, TX 76054

With a genuine and relatable nature, Dr. Luis Nieves instantly puts his patients at ease when they visit him. As an AGME fellowship-trained, board-certified pain management physician with the Texas Pain Relief Group, Dr. Nieves has the experience and the personality that allows patients seeking pain relief to rest assured knowing they have the best care.

As a young man, Dr. Nieves saw his uncle diagnosed with cancer and the pain it inflicted on his uncle as a result. Seeing that the cancer doctors were not comfortable treating pain, and had very few medications to assist his uncle with his pain, Dr. Nieves was then moved to take action and stop this from happening to any patients he has the power to help.

He received his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, and trained in anesthesiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He later completed his residency in family medicine at John Peter Smith Health Network. After completing a fellowship in sports medicine at JPS Health Network, he was then selected as one of a few trainees in a prestigious interventional pain management program with JPS Health Network and UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Dr. Nieves receives his reward from seeing the transformation of patients: when they first come in to see him, sometimes in crippling pain, and later go to leading close to normal lives.

He also supports important causes, two of which are: the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, where he has given lectures; the Wounded Warrior Project.

Dr. Nieves’ preferred form of leisure is vacationing to Mexico and other countries. He also enjoys reading science fiction, and working on electronics, like computers.

This place is supposed to be pain management experts! My a$$! My husband switched practices when his doc suddenly stopped treating patients with Medicare. They cut his pain medicine by 75% the first Month! He had just had a spinal chord stimulator placed so reduction was coming. Now today, they didn't have his sleep meds or his Lyrica/Neurontin Rx approved by the attending physician in time for his appointment with the PA - so they just didn't give him any! I will hold you people responsible if he commits suicide in the next month for denial of treatment and medication...after all we have already been through!

I will give Dr. Nieves and Dr. Landry five start, great compliments they are very nice and listen to you when the time comes to see them, the back staff is very friendly, however the front staff is sometimes rude and not professional at all, specially one of the ladies in the front it’s give the back staff and doctor a bad image, I have tried to get corporate to call me and they really don’t care to get feedback from the patient whom pay their salaries and food at the table for their families. I am staying because I love the back staff and doctors. But they really need to get better people in the front desk as the faces of Dr. Nieves.

Stay away from this place. I have only been attending this place for 3 months. Doctor was nice but the staff doesn't care. They scheduled me 32 days out and only gave me a 30 day supply. The PA let go because she said I didn't have anything in my system. I explained why and said u can draw my blood and see whats in my system. She let me go with nothing to take till i could find a new doctor. Now i am very sick because i have nothing till i get in with someone else. That is dangerous.

Stay away from this place. I only attended this office for 3 months. Dr. was nice. The scheduling for a new appt went past 30 days. So when i went in last they said I didn't have enough medication in my system. I told them why and they didn't listen so they let me go without a month supply to help my pain till I could find another doctor. So now i am praying for a new doctor and going thru pain and withdrawals that r dangerous and can kill u.

Dr. Nieves is a good doctor... Unfortunately the staff and others at the office in Hurst are unhelpful at best. My mother and I were with them for four years and I have had so many problems I feel I must find another place to take Mom. Save yourself the headaches and go somewhere else.

This is the most incompetent group of medical professionals that I have run across in quite some time. The front office staff are rude, nonchalant, and care more about ordering Starbucks coffee then meeting the needs of their patients. The physician is rarely in the office and when he is the wait time to see him is four hours or more. Staffing for appointments are done offsite at a call center so there is no one to police the amount of appointments that are being scheduled. It is obviously about dollars and setting appointments as oppose to patient care. It is a matter of time that insurance companies become aware of this and shut these malpractice behaviors down at his office.

This is what happened to my wife!!! If I could give ZERO stars I would. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!! (He is not board certified and unprofessional) I had an appointment today at 3:00pm. I was told to arrive 30 minutes eyarlier to fill out paperwork. I arrived in the parking lot at 2:24pm and was inside waiting in line within a couple of minutes. I stood there waiting while two people were helping someone in front of me. They had no idea what they were doing so the receptionist kept asking the other person what to do. Finally the patient in front of me leaves, the receptionist ignored me and walked away. Finally the other person said come over here and I'll help you. He hands me a cup for urine, and a stack of paperwork to fill out. I go straight in and do my business and then come out and start the stack of paperwork. It was asking for very detailed information so it took some time. Another patient walks in and sat down next to me. She reeked of acohol and cigarettes. I started getting neauseas and wound up in the bathroom puking. I have MS and a seizure disorder so I'm sinsitive to smells, lights, and loud noises. After throwing up I went back out in the waiting room and my husband got up and told the staff what happened and that we were moving to a quitter area. I thought the professionalism was already bad well here's were it gets worse. It is now 3:30pm, 30 minutes past my appointment time of 3:00. We had been there an hour. They proceed to tell my husband that we have to reschedule because I missed my appointment due to my paperwork not being finished. WHAT in the hell???? NO ONE told us that the paperwork had to finished before my appointment time. NO ONE came out and told us that we needed to hurry up, NO ONE told us that we had been cancelled. They were rude and disrespectful. I asked the manager to talk to the doctor and she said he was the one that cancelled do to my lack of having my paperwork done. I was shocked at the lack of professionalism of not only the staff but the doctor. I would not even treat an animal the way I was treated. RUN DON'T WALK AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!

Wife was seen by Doctor, received injection in the office by medical assistant that should not be performing such procedures. Procedures should be performed by licensed physician. 2nd wife received a ESI from the physician in day surgery. Assuming the physician performed the procedure. The steroid was injected into the spinal cord leaving my wife with paralysis in her hand. 18 months later there has been no improvement and physician has shown no concern. As if she would let him touch her again. No lawyer will take the case because of the limitations of financial gain. This physician has not attended proper training and is not board certified in pain management. PLEASE stay away from this doctor, Texas Pain Relief Group and Precinct Ambulatory Surgery.

Please beware. Dr. Nieves seems very capable and friendly. However, the staff doesn't respond. They do not answer or return calls. They told me that I would have $0 to pay. However, they office they use for procedures is not covered by the same insurance that works for his office. My provider informed me that they told this to the office rep for Dr. Nieves. A miss Olivia was informed that their other facility was "out-of-network". However, even up to the day of the procedure, they said my portion was $0. I learned of this problem, so I called and spoke with the office manager, Naomi S. She explained that they were aware and that they handle me like I was in-network, so my portion was $0 because I had met my in-network out of pocket deductible. She confirmed that I would not owe anything on that procedure. I explained I had a 2nd procedure scheduled. She confirmed that it, too, would be handled as if I was in-network and they would write off the remaining balance. I had the 2nd procedure and now 2 months later I'm receiving those bills because I was "out-of-network". I've called and left a message for call back, but have yet to hear anything. I'm very disappointed/frustrated/stressed and now have large medical debt.

My wait was due to the staff making a same day appointment. Dr. Nieves took the time to read & review the MRI's & reports I had. He was not in a rush- Dr. listened to me, gave me information & hope. First Dr. in a very long time that treated me like a person, not a "number" or a "cash cow." I highly recommend the Dr. His staff was also friendly, concerned & extremely well organized.

I'm going to miss Dr Nieves since my new insurance for 2017 doesn't cover him. Even though insurance drags you through hell as if your a criminal, Dr Nueves could explain & offer real solutions, never giving up on helping you deal with the pain. Thank you Dr Nieves!!!

Everyone and everything about this location was about getting narcotics. I needed to see a sports medicine doctor to get a problem with my knee looked at, but more than 5 times people talked to me about getting narcos and they even tried to set up an appointment a month from my visit "for a refill" when I didn't even get a prescription. They said they would set up an MRI appointment that day and call me but I have yet to hear back from anyone. A waste of a hour and a half wait .
