I’ve been a patient of Dr. Nosko for 25 years. I’ve had 3 surgeries by Dr. Nosko and I trust him implicitly. He is a superb neurosurgeon.

I had my back surgery performed by Dr Nosko recently. He explained to me clearly what was to be performed. The surgery was more extensive than what was planned but Dr Nosko has me walking and attending therapy! His is a doctor you can trust. I had no problems with his office staff. I worked with Mellissa who took care of all my paperwork from my employer, insurance, and appointments! Having back surgery can be a stressful time but I recomend Dr Nosko and his skills.

Dr. Nosko is the most proficient, concise and precise neurosurgeon I have the privilege to know. He has helped me recovered from a horrific auto accident and am I ever grateful for such a skilled surgeon. Words cannot express the summation of my quality of life, of which, Dr. Nosko is chiefly responsible for. Thank you Dr. Nosko for restoring my health.

I am very happy with Dr. Nosko and his team. I understand he's a very busy man but he took the time to talk to me and my wife about my procedure (ACDF). Everything went as well as expected and now I'm in less pain and on the road to recovery!

Dr. Nosko is a disgrace and his office staff are useless he canceled my appointment twice now and it’s not like it’s easy to get an appointment I had the second appointment scheduled for over a month and when the receptionist from the office called to cancel there was no sensitivity what so ever they might as well had a robot call this doctor should just retire at this point I wouldn’t go to this doctor if my life depended on it at this point

Incredible doctor! One of the best brain surgeons in the country. He performed an emergency craniotomy on me when I had an unexpected hemorrhage and saved my life (Other doctors in the hospital told my family I wouldn't make it). I had the hemorrhage in 2010, eight years ago. I have fully recovered and am doing fantastic. I highly recommend him.

Absolutely the most horrible experience I have ever had with a doctor. He was in the room for about 5 minutes. Didn't seem to ask many questions or write anything down. The office phone might as well go in the garbage because nobody picks up or returns messages. I felt hopeful by the reviews to have this doctor answer all of my problems but I was left feeling as hopeless as I did before I met him. I will never refer any of my patients to him. The precert dept however was very nice.

I found Dr. Nosko to be cold and uncaring. It was all very matter of fact, go home and speak to your boyfriend about it here (written on a scrap piece of paper) is the name of the surgery you require, go home and research it and do your homework The woman who does his scheduling NEVER returns your phone calls. It took over a week to get her on the phone to schedule the surgery and several days to get her on the phone to cancel the surgery when I decided to use a different surgeon
