I was so happy that Dr. Nuber was able to consult with his other Doctor's in his practice to the advisory of my surgery and if it was needed, so I wouldn't have to seek another 3rd party advice to go forward with the surgery!

I have been a patient of Dr. Nuber for approximately 20 years. Never a question in my mind that he is outstanding. Results, never completely predictable, have been excellent. His forecasting of my knee condition over a period of many future years has been 100% accurate. Dr. Nuber also connected me to a surgeon for a non-knee situation and doctors for hand and foot situations. All very good.

I was extremely nervous about the possibility of needing surgery; the doctor reassured me and walked me through what we would do before deciding if surgery was needed and then advised on surgical options if future tests determined surgery was needed.

Dr. was great. He provided great explanations and treatment options. I just think him or PA should have acknowledged how past the appointment time we were before we started appointment. This would have been really thoughtful and appreciated.
