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.
