I saw Dr. Nolla for a break in my right hand.. I found his bed side manner to me beyond poor. He was very dismissive of my pain and I found him to be extremely over confident. He never really spoke to me directly, he ignored my concerns and my pain. At one point he told his PA while I was expressing my discomfort that the break was not that bad... I found that infuriating! There is much more, however this site only allows short reviews. Find a different Dr. Good luck otherwise.

I ended up with a condition called RSD do to my surgery. The fact that I ended up with it did not make me nearly a angry as the fact that he did not treat my condition or refer me to a doctor who would. Because of this lack of care I have been in horrible pain for many months. All he did was refer me to a veterans website for victims of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Unfortunately the pain is not in my head. It is everywhere else and I can not get amy help until I can change insurance.

I have been seeing Dr. Nolla for several years for carpal tunnel. He was very helpful in explaining everything before my first diagnostic procedure. Once my diagnosis was made, he explained my options. He did steroid injections in my wrist, and I didn't feel a thing. He is very skilled. Surgery is being recommended but I haven't decided yet. He's a good doctor.
