Hello, Katrina,
I met your father almost 5 years ago in the cardiac ICU at Presby.  My husband had suffered a cardiac arrest & your father was taking care of him. He was so kind to me, and helped lessen my fear & anxiety. I have been a nurse for many years & have dealt with many physicians...none like your father!.
He helped save my husband & because of him, my husband is doing well today! My husband loved him & so did I!!
If we could have done anything for him, we would have! 
He had told us about you & your brother,  and I know he loved you very much and was very proud of you both.

I am praying daily for him, and you & your brother.
Please accept our deepest condolences, and I would love to make a donation in his name to Borders without Doctors.
Know that he was better than the best! 

His brilliance, compassion, and love of medicine will continue through many generations, I am sure.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family!! Dr . Nemic was an incredible doctor. He was responsible for saving my life. When I was in fear of what was going on with my body, he always made sure I knew that I was in good hands. 2 ablations later my life is back to normal. I was so grateful to him and just compassion and care that he showed. He will be missed!!

RIP Dr. Nemec

Dr. Nemec was one of the smartest most patient physicians I've ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with. His knowledge was vast, his kindness was endless, and the time he spent with his patients was never rushed. His passing is an absolute shock. He will be very missed. <br /><br />To his children, your father was the very best physician. He never became annoyed when we paged him, matter the time. Even if it was a mistake, he would try to help staff figure things out from his end. As smart as he was, he never made those with less knowledge feel inferior; he freely shared what he knew. He was an amazing educator to both patients and staff alike. My deepest condolences to your family at this very difficult time. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Just heard of his death today. He was my cardiologist and I loved him. He changed my life for the better and gave me my strength and stamina back. When I would see him for my annual checkup, I would call him "My Hero". I will miss him tremendously. He was a marvelous physician. My sincere condolences to his family and colleagues.

Dr. Nemec and I shared many conversations in the Electrophysiology office suite before I retired in 2015. He always had a smile for me. It was part of my job to ask if he wanted to upgrade his flip phone to an iPhone but he was happy with the older technology; that was in keeping with his old-world charm. His research and relationships with patients are well-known and he was an icon in the Heart and Vascular Institute. He will be missed. My condolences to the family and friends.
