Patient Comments (2)
La Mesa, CA |
Dr. Nager is the best. I went to several doctors for years that could not figure out what was wrong and Dr. Nager sent me for an MRI that determined my problem. If only others doctors had done this. Then again, I am glad they did not, because Dr. Nager was the best doctor to perform my hysterectomy and I haven't felt this great in years.

Dr. Nager was very honest, kind and professional. He answered all my questions and gave me the confidence I needed to have this prolapse repair. I highly recommend him. His associates and resident doctors and nurses were great also.
