Dr. Nowinski replaced my left shoulder in October 2016 and my right in January 2017. I have had such wonderful results and a quick recovery. All the staff and nurses were very friendly and professional. Wish I had had the procedure done a long time ago. Thanks for no pain and quality of life again!

Dr. Nowinski performed surgery for torn rotator cuffs & bicep tendon tears on both shoulders on me , one in 2009 & other in 2010 with excellent results both times. I've referred him to several friends who've experienced the same excellent results. Hlis bedside manner & staff are equally wonderful. You can put your trust in him. He is the BEST!!!

after getting authorization from bwc for initial exam / consultation, I hadn't heard anything for approximately 3 weeks. I questioned that fact with my physician of record when I went there for treatment. while I was getting treatment, one of the staff contacted Dr. Nowinski's office and inquired about the situation and they were told that Dr. Nowinski's office had tried to reach out to me to get scheduled. (NOT TRUE ! ) when I got home from work that day I had a message from their office.

Dr Nowinski was very professional an understanding to my problems he was easy to talk to and he has taken care of me through my 3 surgeries would recommend him to my family and friends
in Johnstown, OH |
The initial visit was good. My left shoulder was in serious pain. An x-ray taken there showed nothing. He ordered an injection but had his NP administer it. The ultrasonic indicated severe inflammation. He ordered an MRI and sent my request to the insurance company. My insurance denied the MRI. I placed several calls to his executive assistant - none were returned. They never followed up so I went elsewhere.
