About Me

As a primary care sports medicine physician, my specialization focuses on a non-surgical approach to a wide array of musculoskeletal issues for all ages. I believe in working closely with my patients and providing them with a multitude of options that allows for more highly personalized care plans. I emphasize the importance of prevention and strive to help my patients create long lasting healthy and active lifestyles. My goal is to provide my patients with all the necessary knowledge and assistance on their journey back to normal activity.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the philosophy of individualized care that’s shared among providers. Having access to a vast network of resources and specialists ensures that our patients receive the highest quality care available.

In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, spending time with my friends and family, traveling and staying active through various sports, running, weight lifting and yoga.

    he made me very comfortable

    Wow! Dr. Nolan was wonderful. He had definitely read my chart and already looked over an X-ray and sonogram taken at the hospital. He showed my the X-ray and explained what he saw. He gave me a steroid shot, which is what I'd hoped for. He could not be sure what was wrong with me and I was moving out of state 3 days later. He also ordered a Rx for me. He said I could call him from out of state if my problem did not resolve and the pain continued.

    Dr. Nolan seems knowledgeable about my issues & recommended an ultra scan when he felt the lump behind my knee to eliminate the possibility it being a blood clot & refer me to Ross Heart Hospital.
