Incredibly unprofessional. Did not keep up with appointments, which led to an infection and having to amputate. There was always some sort of fiasco with insurance, only doctor to ever have this problem with.

True specialist in Dupuytren's contacture treatment, specifically needle aponeurotomy. 10y problem was resolved in about 30 minutes. Severely crooked and bent ring finger now perfectly straight. Virtually zero downtime.

I visited Dr Nathan after he became highly recommended by 3 different friends of mine (none of which know each other). I was having severe carpal tunnel nerve pain in my hand (I’m 35 years a hairstylist), and began icing my hand halfway through haircuts. Dr. Nathan agreed to help me with surgery, and was not certain that my hand would fully recover, because I let it go so long. Voila’ , I have full use of my hand and all feeling has come back into the ends of my fingers! He’s brilliant!

Dr Nathan is amazing! Before seeing Dr. Nathan I went to a specialist at UCLA for my Dupuytren's Contracture. The Dr. I saw at UCLA actually did more damage to my hands. Dr. Nathan was referred to me by another satisfied patient. He has completed surgery on my left hand which was severely contracted. Today I can open my hand completely and there is very little scarring. Dr. Nathan is a very knowledgable and capable doctor and surgeon. I am having him repair my right hand now.

Dr. Nathan saved my hands. I have a condition called Dupuytrens Contracture whereby my hands were becoming useless. In an office procedure I gained my hands back. Unlike many doctors I have been dealing with I found Dr. Nathan to be straightforward and more interested in my well being rather than dollars. There was no arrogance, not uncommon these days, just a friendly down to earth doctor who answered all my questions and spent a good deal of time e

Went to see dr Nathan for a hand fracture and he was excellent and extremely knowledgeable! The time he spent explaining my injury to me and the prognosis and treatment options exceeded my expectations and was much more in depth than most surgeons that just want to get you under the knife as quick as possible. Made me feel very comfortable and confident about my injury . Very professional, friendly and a really nice guy would definitely recommend if you have a need for a great hand specialist!!

Dr. Nathan has been absolutely right, immediately, about how to treat the various hand ailments I have had these last three years. He is a top-of-the-line surgeon, and has an extremely competent physical therapy group co-located with this office. I recommend him for any mild or serious problems with your hands.
