For a first visit, he was extremely nice, patient, and engaged throughout the entire visit. Sometimes you feel like you're being rushed along with doctors, especially ones that have such a high frequency of patient visits, but Dr. Nuber took the time to ask questions about me and the injury. And, even before leaving asked again if there was anything else he could answer for me. It was a truly enjoyable experience and I'm glad I was referred to him.
