Have you seen Dr. Joseph Nolan?
Posted on October 5th, 2017
He was my doctor for 7 years
Posted on September 30th, 2017
I saw some of the poor reviews, so I felt the need to post my experience. He and his staff had been nothing but professional. The only negative I can think of is that he's very low key. Because of this, he may come off has disinterested and uncaring. He is interested, and he does care. He was my doctor for 7 years. A little over two years ago I moved out of state, so I had to find another doctor to treat my condition. It has been a huge challenge. No other doctor seems to want to treat me. I miss Dr. Nonan. I have considered flying to Phoenix to see Dr. Nolan again.
I wish EVERY doc was like Dr. Nolan

In reading prior reviews I am shocked. Can't believe these folks see the same doc I do? Dr. Nolan is very caring and attentive. He spends as much time with me as I need. He is very knowledgeable and kind. He tells it like it is, but is never rude about it. I don't want a doc to sugar coat stuff and hand out drugs like M&Ms. We need more docs like Dr. Nolan. He came highly recommended to me and I would/have recommended him on several occasions. Thanks Dr. Nolan.. you're the best!

I am sad say that the first time I visited this doctor I was very disappointed. His attitude was a bit arrogant and unfriendly. His diagnosis was non-professional in that he basically said my arthritis was just part of getting older and that even he had it. So, I decided to try another visit since then because there are new medications available. He refused an appointment with me because I was late paying my previous bill even though I paid it in full. I actually am relieved because I wouldn't want to be disappointed again.
Didn't get further than calling for an appointment

I didn't get further than calling to make an appointment. The young woman who answered was rude and unprofessional, so much so that I told her to "just forget it." I'll deal with people who actually WANT my business.

I am extremely disappointed with Dr Nolans care. First I would like to say he is very unprofessional and if your looking for a doctor who uses profanity he's your guy. I have rheumatoid arthritis and have never meet such a rude rheumatologist. Unfortunately he will remain in practice. I am writing this review to warn other patients to stay away from this doctor, there is hope and other doctors who really do care about their patients.

I have seen Dr. Nolan since the beginning of 2014. My experience with Doctor Nolan has been nothing but excellent. My condition has improved. Dr. Nolan is ready to accept feedback and act quick if something is not working. I would recommend Dr. Nolan to anybody who wants to see improvement with their condition.
Can't believe he's still in practice

I saw Dr Nolan many years ago. I was young and had been in pain for a long time. Like the other reviewers, I was not "heard" nor believed. He acknowledged that I had hyperextensive joints but that was it. He dismissed me as just having "growing pains" and we were done. He could not explain how someone could have "growing pains" when they had been the same height and weight for at least 7-8 years! (It's also my understanding that "growing pains" are in the long bones, not joint.) Would never go back nor recommend him. I'm surprised he's still "practicing" (doesn't make perfect, I guess) with such an attitude. Decades later, I am worse. I have since been diagnosed with FMS & DDD but I guess it's all irrelevant.
Don't waste your time or money on Dr. Nolan

Dr. Nolan is rude and lacks compassion for his patients. I waited 2.5 months to see him and he spent 23 minutes with me. He yelled at me b/c the blood work I brought with me did not have a titer as though that was my fault somehow. Then he was not even going to redraw blood! I had to ask him to run another work-up, he said, "I guess I can have the RN take a vial". He rolled his eyes twice during my description of symptoms and cut me off in the middle of them. Even though I have Raynaud's Phenomenon, have been in pain for over a year, nearly unable to work at age 36, and have a family history of rheumatic disease, he dismissed me as probably "just" having Fibromyalgia and told me I was going to be in pain the rest of my life. He completely dismissed everything I told him and offered no hope or help. He gave a an Rx for muscle relaxers after I explicitly told him I cannot take muscle relaxers and function on a day to day basis. He rolled his eyes again at me and walked out of the room. I left in tears! I felt so discouraged and hopeless. Don't waste your time or your money on Dr. Nolan.

Dr. Nolan has never acted like he cares about me as a patient. He is quite terse with me each time I see him. On my last visit with him, when I was in quite a lot of pain, and had been for a long time, he became very rude when I was questioning him about medication.

Staff is very unprofessional and should find another profession because they sure don't know how to treat patients and honestly they don't care. Dr. Nolan likes to push medication just to keep you coming back. Look elsewhere.
