Horrible. Created problems I never had and didn’t fix the one he operated because of. Had to have three additional operations by others after the three he did on me

Dr. Nease is amazing! I had a rhinoplasty and breast augmentation and I love my results! He has operated on my mother and aunt for eyes and facelift. I have referred too many friends to count and they all have the same impression of Dr. Nease. He is really humble to be so talented!

He doesn't listen, has a temper and is rude to his patients. I have extreme regret for going and seeing him! He had me go have a mri done then didn't have enough curtousy to tell me my results before rushing me out of the office. I asked about it and his reply was I'm surprised you had it done.
