Patient Comments (3)
in Lisle, Il |
Dr. Nuber surgically repaired both of my rotator cuffs (a couple years apart) His procedure brought tremendous relief to the daily pain I was having. I call him a genius.
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Nuber was very professional and no nonsense but still came across as warm and caring. He seemed to be an excellent technician and was able to repair what was a very painful severely torn meniscus in a very arthritic environment to an almost pain free result. Was very pleased with my experience with Dr.. Nuber and would recommend him.
in Chicago, IL |
A very friendly, emphatic and knowledgeable man. Made me feel comfortable in doing surgery with him.
