    I had my first appointment with Dr Nate today and I was very pleased! He listened to me and cared about what I had to say. We came up with a game plan for my future care and I left knowing that I made the right decision in choosing him.

    Armstrong County is lucky to have such a gifted physician. He's done rotator cuff surgery on one shoulder and shoulder replacement on the other. It is so nice to be pain free, finally. I like to get feedback from physical therapists because they see the orthopedic patients for a lot of time post surgery.
