What People Say About Dr. Mayo Noerdlinger, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The two appointments I had with him were great, and he really listened to me. However, I felt like questions I had - especially right after surgery - were not addressed appropriately, leaving the questions to be answered by my PT. I was also disappointed that I did not see him after surgery, since he had already talked with my husband. He is a great surgeon, and good in person, but some communication was lacking.

this guy changed the surgery that was planned, did a different surgery than wasnt necessary. complications of him cutting off my bicep muscle caused lost of feeling in 3 of my fingers that never came back. i got excuses & a brush off when i came for follow up. then at 3 months from surgery i had massive pain & cramping coming from my arm & shoulder, i got the brush off again & he was clearly distancing himself from my case saying he will refer me for ultrasound & cotizone but nobody ever called.

Had my second rotator cuff surgery with Dr. Noerdlinger, first one was right shoulder, the most recent, the left. The man is magic. It's paramount to be able to trust your healer. Dr. Noerdlinger spends time to pinpoint exactly what the complaint is about. I find him to be meticulous, a very good quality in a surgeon. I did everything he told me to do and didn't do anything he warned against. Nothing heavier than a cup of coffee. Thanks, Mayo.

Dr. Noerdlinger is the 'go-to' person for shoulders. He was great. After a month I am feeling back to my old self. Everyone is different, but I did not have much pain after the operation. He said I was lucky, but I think he may have helped my odds. Thanks again, Dr. Noerdlinger

Dr. Noerdlinger has a well deserved reputation in this area. After dealing with shoulder pain for years and having limited range of motion, I am in great condition now. My questions were always answered and I did not feel rushed during my office visit.

I waited 1.5 hours to see Dr. Noerdlinger. He spent about 5 minutes with me regarding my shoulder, asked me to raise my arms. I squeezed in a couple questions and he was out the door. He was rushed impersonal, and cold. I cancelled my return appt. and saw Dr. Nowak in Exeter who was excellent. I reviewed my report from Noerdlinger and he made up test results that never occurred, such as "skin intact, sensation in tact to light touching" (no contact) and he lied about discussing treatment options

In my opinion, Dr. Noerdlinger is the best shoulder surgeon in the area. I recommend him often to family and friends. Not only does he have the gift of healing, he is a very caring person.

With three torn tendons (one ruptured) I needed rotator cuff surgery. I am extremely pleased that I chose Dr Noerdlinger. He has shown his excellence in surgical practice and has been clear and thorough about what to expect all through the process. I knew I had made a good choice right from the start when I read the information sheet that he gave me at our first meeting. In particular, it said that success would depend on a team effort of the surgeon, the patient, and the physical therapist.

Excellent experience. My diagnosis was accurate, I received the information I needed in order to make the right decisions, the office staff was helpful, and when I made the decision to have my surgery everything went smoothly so that I received the outcome that I needed. I am so thankful for Dr. Noerdlinger, his staff, and his relationship at the hospital for my excellent care.

Dr Noerdlinger repaired my torn meniscus, which was not treated properly in a prior surgery. He is a delight to work with--candid, clear, helpful and willing to spend time discussing the issues in a particular case. The office's billing practices are reasonable and transparent. Scheduling is easy. In other words, patients are treated as valued clients, not business objects. My knee feels normal for the first time in two years; I had forgotten what normal feels like, but it's wonderful!

Dr. Noerdlinger made my whole experience a good one. Telling me all of my options and explaining them clearly. From pre-op to post-op and finally through physical therapy I always felt as if I had his complete focus on me and my recovery. I realize that every patient and surgery is different but I've had surgery on both of my shoulders and the outcome has been fantastic for both. I highly recommend Dr. Noerdlinger to any one that I come in contact with who might be searching for a surgeon.

If you need shoulder surgery, Dr. Noerdlinger is the surgeon you want. Years ago I had rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder at a world renowned hospital in Boston, MA. This winter I tore my left rotator cuff and was referred to Dr. Noerdlinger as I now live in Maine. If I need an orthopedic surgeon again, I will definitely contact Dr. Noerdlinger. He is very knowledgeable, takes the time needed to answer all of your questions, and, addresses any concerns you have. Healing is going well.

Dr. Noerdlinger is an excellent surgeon and communicator with his patients. I had a total right shoulder replaced last year and today, over a year and a half later I am still going strong. I recommend this fine surgeon to anyone who wants good results from their operation.

horrible doctor. plain and simple. i was actually told from another Dr. that Dr. Mayo Noerdlinger is a less that desired Dr. i did'nt listen and found out that he wasn't lying. If your trying to get on pain pills then he's the doc for you, but if you want real help then DO NOT see this sham.

DR. Noerdlinger gave me my life back! He is one of the best orthopedic doctors around this area for shoulders. I did research to find a doctor with excellent credentials by going online, talked to physical therapists, and talked to others with shoulder problems and I came up with Dr Noerdlinger. I knew I would need my shoulder replaced and possibly needed a reverse shoulder replacement and I wanted to have the best doctor who I had 100% complete confidence in. I'm am blessed to have found him.

Dr. Noerdlinger is an amazing surgeon. I just had rotator cuff and bicep surgery. He called 3 times over a weekend to see how I was doing. I never experienced pain just some discomfort. I was out walking within 5 days and driving within 4 weeks. He explained the process in layman' s terms. Dr.N was supportive and encouraging. Thank you!

I was referred to Dr Noerdlinger by a friend of mine and it was the best decision I ever made! He is a very kind, patient and smart doctor. We've been through 2 shoulder surgeries together. He explains everything that he is going to do before and what he did do after surgery. My shoulders are finally on the mend after years of abuse and I will be back to doing what I love pain free very soon.
