Dr. Tyler Nathe performed my extensive rotator cuff shoulder. As my provider, he came across very professionally and confidently assuring me that he would do his best to repair my injuries and explaining the procedure in detail.. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Nathe. I trust and respect this doctor and I will be returning to him in the future if necessary without any doubts.

A terrific surgeon and very friendly as well. He did 5 different surgeries in my right knee and I am walking just fine and getting stronger. I have to thank this man for blessing me with the ability to walk again.

I found Dr. Nathe to be professional and personable. He perform surgery on my right knee, extracting a bone spur that had broken loose. He explained everything in a manner which I could understand and welcomed questions. I never felt as though I was being rushed through my appointments. I had a wonderful experience and would definitely refer my friends and family to him in the future! Thank you Dr. Nathe!!
