Patient Comments (6)
Tallassee, AL |
Gave me no instructions on how to take care of my fractured ankle and as an afterthought, put an ace bandage on it! Five weeks later, ankle still swollen and still hurts! No idea what to do! His last statement to me was eat a scoop of ice cream everyday! I felt as though to him, I was nothing but an afterthought and not worth his time! Nothing was resolved and he has a very uppity attitude!

Told me that it wasn't worth it for me to even come back to him! 4 weeks later, my ankle still swollen and still having a hard time walking!

I had an MRI of my right knee. The X-Ray technician wrote on the report a double tear in the meniscus. Nuelle told my wife and I that the technician was in hurry and wrote down the wrong problem. Nuelle said the meniscus was worn out and that I should buy an exercise bicycle. We had the MRI copied and traveled to North Carolina to an Orthopedic surgeon who told us that I did have a double tear and was a candidate for arthroscopic surgery. After the scope, no more pain. Nuelle no more.

We are very pleased with Dr. Nuelle and staff. He is honest and explains the options in layman's terms. Would definitely recommend him. The only problem is he is only in Blairesville two day's a week.

It was my first visit to him. He was only in the exam room for about 5 minutes and was very dismissive of me. He said my arthritis wasn't that bad and that my problem climbing stairs was common for a big girl. I'm 63 years old and did not appreciate him calling me that demeaning term. He's a mighty big boy himself so had a lot of nerve.. I'm sure he wouldn't have appreciated it if I'd turned it back on him, which I should have done. I will let everyone I know how dismissive he was.
