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.

    Dr. Nolan helped me understand why I have pain in my knee. He explained what I needed to do to help it in detail. He understood my need to remain active and to be pain free.

    He did not listen. Interrupted several times, rushed me through my appointment, left the room and I didn't even know my appointment was done. Prescribed medication that was not effective after telling him anti-inflammatory medicine didn't work before.

    The provider was not wearing any identification and did not introduce himself so I wasn't even sure it was Dr Nolan. Also he seemed very rushed and "kicked the can" of my care to another doctor.
