PA Worden was very nice and explained the treatment plan and epidural procedure well. Front desk staff that was not helpful when I told them I could not sit and needed a place to place complete the intake forms. I found a smallShow more counter in a hallway but it was so akward I fell down. Someone eventually found a small room where I could lie down. There was also a lot of confusion between Alta and Pueblo Radiology re Pueblo’s need to review the spinal X-rays your off ice took. After many phone calls your office agreed to provide my X-rays husband for $10.00 but would not provide the X-rays directly to Pueblo. We brought the CD w/ X-rays to the Pueblo epidural appointment but they said it was too late and couldn’t use them. The epidural went fine but the radiologist only injected one area— not two areas as you directed. He relied ONLY on the MRI and refused to view or keep the X-ray CD from your office that we brought with us
Alta Orthopedics rocks! Everyone at Alta Orthopedic, from when you enter the door, get seated in your room, have xrays when needed, to when you leave are professional, considerate, knowledgeable and effcient.

I am so very grateful to Michelle Meredith, Dr. Proctor and all the Alta Orthopedic Solvang staff! They are the best!

Friendly staff and I was treated with respect. Explained my options and listened to my concerns. Excellent care.
Dr. Nathani is the best! He has excellent inter - personal skills and relates information to you in a forthright,understandable way. I had a complicated broken wrist that he operated on and I haven't had a problem with it since and it's been 3 years. Now he is treating my arthritis with a conservative approach and it's been such a relief to be under his expert care. Carol Stein

The very best. Kindest bedside manner ever!
Very attentive and listen to my concerns. I didn’t feel rushed and appreciated the dialog we had
Dr. Nathani is very clear about your treatment options. He takes time to explain procedures and follow up. I had rotator cuff surgery and never took a pain pill. All-in-all a great man to go to for sports injuries.
Dr. Nathani is one of the best doctors I’ve ever had an experience to work with extremely thankful to be his patient and I’ve learned a lot just being around him (super knowledgeable person and has a gift for what he loves) he’s extremely patient not only that he actually cares about your well-being and your goals and wants to see you get back to where you’re going and really means it, Thankful for this experience although surgery kicked my butt I used it to my advantage to become a better & more well rounded individual bouncing back and I know top is near soon.

Like I was family
I feel like this doctor is very very smart and explains things well. He takes the time to listen and he 100% communicates options in a way that makes it simple to make decisions. When injured I was scared and lost. This Doctor made me feel in control of my decisions and put my fears to rest that I will get better
Very friendly staff, great doctor.
Things were great once I got in to see the doctor. Long wait in the reception area and front desk help wasn't very pleasant.
The doctor is very professional,gives you the time to explain your simtoms and give you a good explanation of the injury you are dealing with
