Quick!

I waited a long time to get approval from insurance to see Dr. N. and when I finally got it, I had an appointment in less than a week! This was a time sensitive issue, too, so I was very thankful! Also, he did a very thorough exam and found that I had a very complex case and could not take care of me, so he referred me on to someone else. I don't need a lovey dovey physician. I just need the right Dx and the right treatment. Thanks so much!

Sad

I saw Dr. Nottingham for multiple issues. He did 2 spinal surgeries on me that went well. But, when I had serious pain, he hung me out with no help for months and then dropped me as a patient when my poor husband pushed him to see me. I was in excruciating pain for months. He had promised to speed up the process for me but he never did. Finally, forced to see another doc. Got help right away, Cysts pressing on my spinal cord, removed, pain gone. Yea some recovery but thank goodness. I was terribly disappointed in Dr. N. Especially after having a long term relationship with him prior. I guess your level of pain is not his concern.

20 year patient

The very first time I saw Dr Nottimgham, he spent 1.5 hours with my husband and I answering questions and fielding concerns. He is a gifted surgeon and cares deeply for his patients. The wait can be long, but when it is your turn, he never short changes your time with him.

Twelve years in, doing great

Anterior /posterior discectomy infusion procedure twelve years ago, performed by Dr. Nottingham. I found that while the wait in the office seems to be rather long at times, he was very informative an honest about what I would have to go through and my recovery time would be about a year. I followed doctor’s orders and my back has been doing just fine. Only when I really over work my back do I have a little pain, but the pain will go away with a good night rest. I count it a blessing to have had Dr. Nottingham to perform my surgery. Thank you Dr. Nottingham for helping me to be able to wear my heels, play with my grandchildren, and now becoming a nurse.

If you don't mind being his Guinea Pig, go for it!

I can only say that if you don't mind paying Dr. Nottingham to do the same surgery over and over again, because he couldn't get it right the first time, then go for it. I had to pay this guy to Implant a Spinal cord stimulator 3 times, and he never did get it right. In addition, I was asked to participate in a new trial version of the surgery, for which I would be minimally compensated for responding to follow up questions in the months following the surgery. When I never received questionares or compensation for participating in the trial surgery, I inquired with Dr. Nottingham as to why. I was told that because I was going to be moving some time in the unforeseeable future, they decided to not include me in the study after all. I was told I had to go to this doctor, as he was the only one in the area doing the newer version of this surgery that I had, at the time. I could have had the traditional implant surgery done by my own doctor, instead I went to him for the new surgery and got experimented on. I am convinced that his failure to perform the surgery successfully was the reason I was left out of the study group. I don't think they wanted their study results rate skewed in a negative way. Take my advice, find a doctor who cares about you as a person, not one who's just out to make money off of those hurt and in pain.
