    I would give him more stars if there were more. I have been a patient of Dr. Nolan's for over 20 years and he has given me nothing but the best of care. He is thorough and knowledgable. He treats every patient with kindness and consideration. He listens to his patients. He keeps us with the most recent treatments but does not over treat his patients. I cannot think of any other rheumatologist I would want to care for me.

    First time a doctor took the time to hear me and my history. Dr. Nolan spent over an hour with me. What doc does this anymore. I feel so relieved I'm not alone any longer is my pain or in my search to find relief. Ty ty ty.

    I wish more doctors had Dr. Nolan's kind demeanor, approach, and interest in patience! He is an unusual active listener. If I could rate him with a 10 I would.

    I saw Dr. Nolan for about 3 years. In that time I had moved over 50 miles away and still would go see him. I had that much confidence in him that he would get to the bottom of what my condition was, and diagnose me correctly. I had even moved to Arizona and still would go back to California for Dr appointments. I would give Dr.Nolan a 10 star rating. He listens to his patients, He's not the doctor that just puts someone on Pain medicine to hide the condition that one is experiencing. Thank You
