Exceptional physician. Put a tremendous amount of work to come up with the best operation for my wife. He recommended I not have surgery for back problem. He's not out to do an operation. Takes time to explain things. Highly recommended, but very busy and hard to get into.

Excellent Physician

Dr Peter Nora Neurosurgeon Swedish Cherry Hill. I was blessed to be under the care of such a knowledgeable, caring, compassionate physician. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for having found this doctor. After going to two doctors I then connected with Dr. Peter Nora. MRI showed a synovial cyst on one of my nerve roots on my spine. Extremely painful and disabling. Quality of life down the drain. Three days ago Dr. Nora preform surgery to remove the cyst. Miracle, pain gone and walking perfectly. Unbelievable! Of course you want an excellent surgeon, but Dr. Peter Nora is so much more. So sensitive, attentive, explains everything in great detail, gives you the success rate and risk rate. There is power in knowledge was what he said. He gives you time to ask questions. He let’s you make the decision. You never feel rushed when you see him. It is all about you. I would also like to say that Dr. Peter Nora’s team is exceptional. Attention to detail, compassionate and caring. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Peter Nora. What a fine example of what and how a doctor should be. Thank you Dr. Peter Nora.

Repeatedly changed opinions and course of treatment without explanation. Did not respond to requests for explanations. Did not listen to my concerns and symptoms then stated he was treating other issues without explanation. Attempted to do the bulk of his consultations through his colleques and assistants. Did not show for scheduled appointments without apology or explanation. Would never trust this individual to practice any type of medicine.
