Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nolan "I believe in taking the time to thoroughly examine the patient and evaluate available diagnostic studies to make the correct diagnosis. The patient will be given all available non-operative and operative treatment options as well as risks and benefits of each. It is important that the patient be involved in all treatment decisions and ultimately be comfortable with their treatment pathway. There will be no "hard sell" or pressure to undergo surgery."

Dr. Nolan performed neck surgery 2 years ago, and I had no issues. He seemed very caring and knowledgeable. Recently, I took a severe fall and fractured my neck. The hospital emergency room released me with a hard cervical brace and advised to see my orthopedic surgeon. The staff was not helpful...more
