Patient Comments (3)

I waited in the exam room for a follow up with Dr. Nord for 45 minutes. When he came in, he spent less than two minutes telling me very vague, unhelpful information while holding his hand on the doorknob and beginning to leave the room before giving me a chance to ask any questions.

Doctor Nord filled in for my surgeon while he was on vacation, after I had a partial knee replacement. I was in extreme pain and needed a procedure he performed. I was totally impressed by how caring and professional he was from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nord with my care.

He jumped to conclusions about my problem without a complete exam. Told me to come back when I couldn't walk anymore. My family doctor diagnosed the actual problem on physical exam and I had a tear repaired by another surgeon.
