Dr. Noonan and his nurse (Mel) have shown concern and care from day one. Dr. Noonan performed a UCL surgery on my son and was very impressed with the surgical staff and the doctor, they kept me informed during the entire surgery. After surgery doctor and answered all me questions, very knowledgeable. The day of surgery and after surgery my son had very minimal pain. I would go to this doctor a 100 times over and recommend him.

Was one of the most arrogant doctors I’ve had the displeasure of working with. He misdiagnosed my torn labrum, even though I had previously dealt with a torn labrum, and told him exactly what to look for. He tried to tell me that my constant partial dislocations were my new quality of life, and seemingly refused to take me at my word that I knew what it was I was experiencing. Thankfully I was able to find a better doctor who did listen, but visiting Dr. Noonan has a negative impact on my health

Dr. Noonan operated and fixed my knee-meniscus problem and I was walking the next day without crutches!

I saw Dr. Noonan, with my MRI report in hand, stating a "complete tear" of my ACL. All he did was make fun of me and laugh. First was for being 61 years old and wanting a stable knee so I wouldn't fall again. Another was: "Well, you certainly aren't an athlete" and laughed again. He said: "You're an attorney, can't you just sue your way to a better knee?" He never even examined my knee, just the MRI report. I'll never go back & neither should anyone else.

Dr. Noonan and Steadman Hawkins (SH) are true professionals. SH had a flood the morning of my appt, but they set up temporary computers and kept all their appts anyway. Amazing. Dr. Noonan listened carefully to everything I said and was able to pick out details that led him to a diagnosis that was missed elsewhere. I just left that office feeling relieved knowing that I was getting sound care and advice. I was referred by a friend for which I'm thankful. This review is an effort to pass it on.

I would be extremely cautious using this clinic and Dr. My experience was horrible. I was in Vail and had surgery on my shoulder. Needing to have a follow up, the doctor refused to see me. Even after saying I would register as a new patient Bringing in my medical records. I found the responses curt and unhelpful. Offering no other suggestions. Patient services are very poor.

Dr. Noonan performed surgery on my left leg at Swedish. I contracted a resistance staph infection in the femur during the surgery. He referred me to another orthopedic surgeon who had the knowledge to deal with a bone infection and I never heard from him again. I subsequently had to have my lower femur and knee joint removed and replaced with a metal rod in my femur and total metal knee joint. These guys at Steadman are not the hot shots they represent themselves to be.

Highly recommended. Had both rotator cuffs repaired. Now back to playing competitive tennis at age 73. Left rotator cuff was shredded and very difficult because everything was tearing. He was very patient and after longer than it took for a knee replacement he got the job done as best he could. VERY PATIENT AND METICULOUS

It seemed that since I wasn't a superstar athlete, he really didn't care too much about my knee. I ripped up my knee playing racquetball a couple of years ago, had it scoped by someone else but it's never healed, so I went to what was supposed to the best. His tech x-rayed my knee crooked so that Noonan couldn't really see the gap but he said oh yeah, you're loosing your cartilage. You'll just have to live with it and basically walked out of the room and left his assistant to deal with me.

Did an excellent job and was very thorough. Did a good job of explaining my options and making sure I knew what my next steps were.
