Patient Reviews
  • “From my first office visit to the last follow up from surgery, I felt that Dr. Nourbash and his office assistant Natalie really cared about me and my knee problem. Dr. Nourbash is a Doctor that takes the time to explain what is going on, what he can do to help, what was involved with my knee replacement, what to expect, and comprehensive follow up. Natalie always was attentive and got back to me to answer any questions or problems with amazing response time. I’ve been recommending Dr. Nourbash.”

    – Mona M.
     

    "I reached my 5 year mark with my new knee, can't tell you how pleased I am. Surgery was a snap, Dr Nourbash is so gifted in what he does. No pain afterwards, no pain now. Everything was so easy, he said therapy is the key and he is so right. I definitely would recommend him. Everyone at Barrington Orthopedics is so caring. "

    – Barb Q.

     

     

    "I have gone to Dr. Nourbash for many years. He did my knee replacement and has seen me for other problems. He is extremely kind, and takes time to answer any questions. My knee replacement was very successful, and the aftercare wonderful. He also has a great staff, who are also very professional, and always friendly. I would, and have recommended this practice to friends and family, and will continue to do so."

    – Duone C. 

     

    "Not only did I find Dr. Nourbash extremely helpful prior to surgery, I am extremely happy with the results of the procedure and highly recommend him. Really good quality workmanship on his part."

    – Michael G. 

  • "Dr. Nourbash is the best! He had me up and walking five hours after surgery completely pain free. The girls in the office and the nurses in the hospital could not have treated me any better. This was not my idea of a vacation, but if I ever need to have the other hip replaced, I am coming back here!"

    - Andrew T. 

     

    "I had a total hip replacement performed by Dr. Nourbash. The experience was very satisfying and worthwhile. The hospital prep class prepared me well for details I was never told for previous surgeries and much appreciated."

    - Debbie W.

     

    "Fabulous treatment, surgery, and follow up at Barrington Orthopedic Specialists."

    - Mary Kay B.

     

    "Dr. Nourbash promised me that I would feel 100% better if I had a hip replacement and he kept his word. Thank you so very much for making my life a lot better."

    - Myrna N. 

     

    "My story starts in 2012 when I went to Dr. Rabinowitz  for my sciatica. I was in so much pain with the bone sitting on my nerve and Dr. Rabinowitz first tried shots to relieve my pain, but to no avail. I had a laminectomy in October of 2012 and I was walking in the forest perserve with my dog by the end of the month. With surgery and therapy, I no longer had pain and to this day, am pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Rabinowitz for any back problems. In October of 2012, Dr. Nourbash gave me my first knee replacement and by March of 2013, I had my second knee done. I am able to do anything with my new knees including playing some tennis. I was told this surgery is a very hard recovery, but I was fine within months. I did my therapy as I was told and before long, I was walking without a walker or a cane. I highly recommend Dr. Nourbash for knee replacement. Because I am a senior of 73 years, I had a problem with my shoulder this year and was recommended to Dr. Obermeyer by Dr. Nourbash. I have early stages of rotator cuff with a possible small tear. Dr. Obermeyer gave me a cortisone shot and recommended therapy, which I just finished. I was very impressed with Dr. Obermeyer and his knowledge and am grateful to be pain free. I am a patient who highly recommends Barrington Orthopedic Specialists for any concern. They have specialists for everything from your head to your toes and are very accomplished and knowledgeable physicians."

    - Sandra D.

  • "Dr. Nourbash has been very helpful and is helping me work toward a permanent solution for problems associated with my right hip replacement done by another orthopedic surgeon associated with a different medical group. He has determined the exact leg length discrepancy and has given me a prescription for a lift in the sole of my shoe. He also recommended physical therapy. I go to therapy 2-3 times a week for 6-8 weeks. The therapists are great! Dr. Nourbash also recommended I schedule an appointment with Dr. David Tashima, a spine specialist. Dr. Tashima was also thorough and made some recommendations. I am so glad my insurance finally allows me to go to the specialists at Barrington Orthopedics."

    – Patricia J. 

     

    "Dr. Nourbash was great throughout the whole surgery experience. Getting my other Hip done in Nov, l am sure everything will go just as smooth. Great Med Asst. as well"

    – Arlen S. 

     

    "Dr. Nourbash is always very friendly and I never have to wait to see him. He did surgery on my knee and I have recently seen him for injections in my knee. I have utmost faith in Dr. Nourbash."

    –  Jacquelyn G. 

    "Dr. Nourbash scoped my knee for a torn miniscus. He did a great job. This was a first ever surgery, so I was a little nervous. I thought all the staff were friendly and made me feel at ease. Hopefully I will never need orthopedic services again. But if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to come back to Barrington Orthopedic Specialists."

    - Glenn W.

     

    "My overall experience has been wonderful! Dr.Nourbash is calming and sincere. The practice as a whole is so well organized and on top of meds, etc. I had my outpatient rehab scheduled before my surgery, as well as my post surgery appointments. That has been so helpful as that would have been overwhelming. Coming home from the hospital, not feeling so well, and having to face all the scheduling of lots of appointments would have been challenging! The PA's and and assistant for Dr. Nourbash are willing to help any way they can!"

    - Jenny B. 


    "Very happy with the doctor and the entire staff, truly understanding experience"

    – John Z. 

  • "Dr. Nourbash has been my "ortho guy" for many years, as well as my extended family's "ortho guy." I can't say enough about his professionalism, technical skills, and patient skills. He is an excellent physician to whom I refer all friends and associates who require his specialty. He's replaced both of my hips, my wife's knee, my sister's hip, and is on deck to do hip surgery necessary for my son."

    - Stephen G. 

     

    "I needed my second hip replaced, this time on my right side. It is so wonderful to walk without pain. I was up and walking the next day with a walker. Dr. Nourbash has done it again; given me a life without pain."

    "I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis 2 years ago. I was diagnosed at another orthopedic practice and I didn't like the care I was getting from them, so I left their care. I then went to another orthopedic practice and was under their care for a short while. I had major issues with the  care I was receiving, so I left their care. I found Dr. Nourbash on www.vitals.com, and he had 50 positive reviews out of 50 reviews. I am now under his care and it's been great. He took the time to explain everything to me about my knee replacement surgery. I was completely comfortable under his care and my knee replacement surgery was done without any problems and my recovery was excellent. I am now getting my other knee replaced just 14 weeks after my first knee replacement surgery. I will and have recommended Dr. Nourbash and Barrington Orthopedic Specialists to my friends and family. The level of care I have received from everyone at Barrington Orthopedic Specialists has been top notch from the doctor on down. I am so grateful that I found Dr. Nourbash and Barrington Orthopedic Specialists. My quality of life has improved tremendously since I have been under their care."

    - Matthew S.

  •  "Dr. Nourbash replaced my right hip on January 14th, 2016. It has been very good so far. Still in PT. Dr. Nourbash did a wonderful job. He has great ratings on any site to which I went. I would definately recommend him to anyone."

    - Joan G.

     

    "Dr. Nourbash replaced my left hip in late March. The surgery and recovery went exceptionally well, and the attention to detail by the physical therapists at B.O.S., led by Dave Erdman, got me back on my feet and back to work quickly. I decided to go ahead and have my right hip done in early July, once again, by Dr. Nourbash. The second surgery went as smoothly as the first, and the rehab team has been working hard to get me up and running. I would recommend Dr. Nourbash and B.O.S. to any of my friends or associates."

    - Walter D. 

     

    "I was amazed at how little pain I had post surgery and how quickly I have recovered from meniscectomy." 

    - Keith D.

    "I am very pleased with all visits and services rendered by Dr. Nourbash as well as those by Dr. Rotstein also."

    – Teamous N. 

     

    "Post 12 weeks hip replacement. Dr. Nourbash is very professional, upfront and honest about treatment options. Excellent bedside manner and explains his procedure and patient expectations in an understandable manner. A patient that has had hip pain for the last three years, he is a miracle worker and I am "pain-free". Special recognition needs to go to Natalie his nurse assistance. She is very responsive to phone inquiries and provided great help during recovery. I would recommend Dr. Nourbash and team 100% of the time. Thank you team!"

    – Gary P.  

     

    "Dr. Nourbash was a hoot! From the first visit thru out my rehab he made the office visit light-hearted and comical. He was very informative while explaining it at a level I could understand. Dr. Nourbash's surgical work left me with hardly any surgical that is sometimes felt afterward. I do and will always recommend him to other as well as use him if I need his skill."

    – Harry 

  • "On March 10th, Dr. Paul Nourbash operated on my right hip (I had experienced problems for 2 years). He and his associates met with me right before the operation which made me feel very comfortable and not at all afraid. He and his associates explained the entire process and what to expect. I was in hospital for 4 days and went to Minor Care, where I stayed for 2 1/2 weeks. I originally was going home, but thought it might help me and my husband, to have the 24 hour care. Best thing I ever did. Therapy was wonderful, the care and attention great (The key is to get up and walk - which I did frequently). Dr. Nourbash met with me two weeks later and again 4 weeks later. I cannot believe that I suffered for 2 years with hip pain, and since the operation, have felt great. Wish I had done this sooner.  I have done the customary therapy since the operation, which is tough but needed. 9 weeks later, I am practically back to new, and able to do most things with very few aches. Getting better every day. Dr. Nourbash is a star and I will be eternally grateful. He is kind, experienced and such a professional. Not only does he care about his patients, he has a great sense of humor and creates confidence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. A former patient of his recommended me to him (whilst buying flowers and plants last summer). I kept his card and so glad I did. Well done doctor; you are my hero."

    "I had been to another orthopedic surgeon before seeing Dr. Nourbash to evaluate my knee arthritis. The other doctor was arrogant and rude, as was his staff. From the very second I walked into Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, I could feel a whole different vibe! Everyone was courteous, friendly, and most importantly LISTENED to me. Dr. Nourbash explained everything and wrote it down. He even gave me a copy of his notes and sketches! When he talks to you, you can tell he is genuinely concerned with your health. He never once made me feel rushed, and he always walked into the room with a huge smile on his face that instantly made you feel welcome! I had a total knee replacement 2 months ago and the experience was really, really great. Every single detail was thoroughly explained to me prior to and after my surgery, and the knee surgery class at the hospital was extremely helpful also. Natalie, his nurse, is amazing. She encouraged me to call anytime I had questions. After I got home from the hospital I had a question about recovery and medication almost every day for the first two weeks, and she returned my calls right away and has the sweetest personality and never once made me feel like I was a bother! My pain was minimal. My advice, if you're having surgery, is to do everything leading up to the surgery and after the surgery, and your recovery will be less painful and easier to cope with. I will some time in the future be having my other knee done and I won't hesitate to see Dr. Nourbash again. A neighbor of mine works at the hospital and she told me Dr. Nourbash has done knee replacements on several other doctors! That is the doctor I want to go to...a doctor's doctor!"
