Patient Comments (11)
in Vinita, OK |
I had a wonderful experience from beginning to end with my rotator cuff surgery. Dr. Nonweiler was very attentive to any concerns and questions. Before the surgery, he gave me written information explaining everything to expect; the surgery, recovery, rehab, etc. I could not have asked for better patient care. Also kudos to Kelly the Physicians Assistant who was simply excellent in rounding out my care. Thanks to a great team.

Over a period of several years, I was unfortunate to have several injuries. Dr. Nonweiler gave me the very best care, thorough explanations, and excellent follow-up. I would and have recommended him to friends and family.

Fantastic surgeron - gives patient as much time as needed. Answers all questions. An all around nice person & doctor. Wouldn't go to anyone else

I have been seeing Dr Nonweiler for over five years about a pesky knee. He always gave me good, pragmatic advice, and when the time was right for surgery, he and his PA Kelly gave me confidence and reassurance. I had a total knee replacement last year and just had my one year check up. I was told to come back in five years! I follow Dr Nonweiler's advice on exercise and have had no regrets or complaints.
in Okmulgee, OK |
Dr. Nonweiler is a top-notch surgeon. I had my right knee replaced and everything well perfectly. A year later I needed the left knee replaced and I immediately chose Dr. Nonweiler again. He was very informative and took extra time to explain each step of the procedure in detail. I would not hesitate to have Dr. Nonweiler work on any member of my family. I trust him without reservation.

Dr Nonweiler handled my ACL surgery very well, helped in rehab and explained the pre op and post op process well. Front desk dept is a pain however which sadly is not controlled by the doctors.
in Tahlequah, OK |
I hurt my shoulder and was sent to Dr. Nonweiler. He has a great bedside manner, was thorough, and explained everything about my injury and treatment. He fixed my impingement with surgery. He gave me the right amount of pain medications as needed and weened me off of the narcotics as my pain decreased. He was honest and accurate when he told me that I would probably always have some level of pain but that I should notice a huge difference in about 2 yrs. He was right. 3 yrs. later and I'm great!
in Tulsa, OK |
Great experience. I am grateful for his abilities which are the reason for my recovery.
in Sapulpa, OK |
I have had rotator cuff surgery on left and right shoulder. My husband has had rotator cuffs repaired Three times, also knee replacement. Son had a torn rotator cuff. Daughter tore her ACL while skiing. Grandson broken arm. We totally trust Dr. David Nonweiler.
in Tulsa, OK |
Love this guy. He operated on my shoulder (i had a slap lesion ie torn labrum). It was a long recovery but Im good to go now. Back to weightlifting with no pain. I always felt like he really wanted me to get better and he was willing to do whatever it took. Hes very competent and knows what he is doing.
in Tulsa, OK |
Dr Nonweiler and his PA K. Kushnerick are both fantastic. Both have a great personality, and take time to explain matters to you. I saw Dr Nonweiler most of 2015, had one knee, medial replaced by Makoplasty/RIO in OCT. and the other in DEC.. It is now FEB. 2016 and the results are great, pain level is great, havent even had to take over the counter pain meds in weeks. So great to be off the prescription NSAID's. Glad I chose this option,and this team to do it.
