Wonderful listener and such a gentleman

It took me nearly 15 years to find a compassionate, empathetic, hands on doctor like Dr. Nolen. Most offices you only get to meet the dr your first visit, then it's different nurses and assistants after that. Dr. Nolen does have nurses for triage but I've personally got to sit and talk w him at each visit. You can tell he has a desire to heal the problem as opposed to most drs who just give you a "bandaid medication" to cover up the symptoms. Dr. Nolen truly tries to find the root of the issue and fix it instead of just covering the "problem" up and sending you to another dr. He is hands down the best GP I've had in my life.
