Four Stars

I saw Dr. Nogalski for a second opinion relating to a workman's comp claim. Our office visit went well. He took the time to answer my questions and was very pleasant.

Terrible experience

I was unfortunately referred to Dr. Nogalski due to a work comp injury and for starters, his arrogance is over the top. Secondly, he handles your injured parts with no regard for pain. I've gotten opinions from many other orthopedist and he is the ONLY one who's tactic is to sit around and do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. He truly is a 'WORK COMP DOCTOR" who wants to keep getting paid by insurance companies, even if it means to risk being unethical and not treating patients with the care that they need. If you have an option, take your hard earned money and priceless body elsewhere to a doctor who really cares and will provide you with an honest opinion. I do not know how this man sleeps at night with a clear conscious.

Five Stars

Dr Nogalski has taken care of problems I have had with knees and a shoulder. Each and every time he has explained what it was that was wrong, the options I had and eventually surgically what was going to be needed to get fixed after exhausting all non surgical options. Each procedure ended up exceptionally well. I highly recommend him to family and friends.

One Star

This doctor does not care for his patients only the worker,s compensation ins. co. who is paying him. First question he asked was "how do you want me to evaluate your knees"? He then spent 15 minutes trying to get the totally stiff one to move, which drs. and therapists tried for weeks with no response from the treatments. He then took my other knee that was the one he was supposed to be looked at and gave it 2 big twists ans said I can't do anything for the one and the other one needs to be replaced. When I received his evaluation he had written can't help the one and the other one was hurt in an accident, which is totally false. NOBODY should ever see him. Only works for insurance companies

Plus he said I had two torn shoulders which turns out I did not. Was a work comp case.

Dr. Nogalski is a caring physician that takes the time needed to discuss your issue and choices in treatment. He tries to avoid surgery whenever possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an orthopedic surgeon.

work comp nightmare

Dr Nogalski has caused me more problems with my shoulder than he fixed. He is more intersted in helping the workers comp carrier than helping me. His does not appear to care about me, just does what work comp will pay him for.
