Patient Comments (3)
North Charleston |
Horrible doctor. Very argumentative. Rolls his eyes at me. Very first and last visit ever.
Mount Pleasant, SC |
A pill and needle mill -- avoid if at all possible. Nolan wants to make sure you go as many times as possible for as many procedures as possible whether they are medically necessary or not or wether the patient wants them or not. Total factory to make as much money as possible. Guy has six offices -- how can one doc manage six offices? Impossible.
