Patients from the Bahamas
Dr. Nordt has been involved with back and neck pain patients from the Bahamas since 1993. We have worked with various insurances in the Bahamas including Atlantic Health, Bahamas Health, NIB, and Colina.
Dr. Nordt’s extraordinary ability to properly diagnose the root of a patient’s back or neck pain is what sets him apart from most Spine Doctors. Dr. Nordt has coined the term, “Pain is a symptom, not a diagnosis”.
Many of the current treaters in the Bahamas have a limited knowledge of the how the spine works, and many patients from the Bahamas, fly to Miami to specifically see Dr. John Nordt for his expertise.
Dr. Nordt has also helped correct many previous failed surgeries by other surgeons. He helped a patient from the Bahamas who had several unsuccessful back surgeries with other spine surgeons 10 years ago. She found Dr. Nordt eight years ago, and he immediately resolved her problem and she has lived pain free ever since. She is a patient for life.
If a patient in the Bahamas or anywhere for that matter has several back surgeries and still suffers from pain, they need to change course. Patients should not be on pain medication 3 months after surgery. Patients should be able to return to work without any restrictions after back surgery
Dr. Nordt finds it fascinating to take care of Bahamas patients. Having worked with patients from the Bahamas for over 20 years, he believes patients from the Bahamas are very reliable as far as following instructions to resolve their back pain.
Dr. Nordt has presented several times at the Grand Bahamas Medical Conference over the years. many of the referring doctors in the Bahamas know Dr. Nordt very well for his expertise.
