Dr. Nora did a whipple procedure on me in 2008 and I have been free of pancreatic cancer since then. He is capable, caring and kind. He makes me wish I had gone to medical school to emulate him.

I can't say enough good things about Dr.Nora and his team. BEST Dr. I ever had! He is very personable and really cares about how you FEEL. I had umbilical and inguinal hernia repairs. When I went back 3 years later for the umbilical repair, he greeted me like an old friend. I felt minimal pain and I can barely see the suture scars. He has truly mastered the technique of hernia repair. He will go beyond the call of duty when it comes to your care. I firmly say, I trust my life with Dr. Nora.
