Dr. Nackley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nackley "Dr. Nackley joined Digestive Health Associates of Texas as a private practitioner in 2001. He takes a personal approach when seeing patients. He schedules each one with enough time for them to discuss their issues and ask questions so that he can educate them on their treatment plan. Allotting extra time allows for the appointment to be more relaxed and not rushed in any way. When his patients leave the office from their appointment, Dr. Nackley wants them to feel that he has created a treatment plan that they feel comfortable with. He also makes sure that they know that he will work with them until the problem is solved. Dr. Nackley also sees each and every patient that is referred to him by other physicians. Dr. Nackley's interests outside the practice of medicine include being an avid tennis player and spending time with his wife and three children. A perfect end to his day is being able to spend an hour before bedtime with his family playing the piano."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nackley "During my medical training and fellowship in advanced GI procedures, I found that I wanted to make a difference in the lives of the patients I treated. I think the most rewarding aspect of being a physician is the connection and relationship I form with my patients and their families. Sharing private medical concerns and opening up to another physician can cause anxiety for the patient, so to decrease their stress, I use humor to lighten up the appointment."

Great physician who brings a personal touch to interactions with patients. I'm a reluctant patient who resists going to any doctor, Dr Nackley made the process much easier. I highly recommend him!

I had my very first and only colonoscopy just recently and I'm in my seventies. I was very scared but Dr Nackley was great. His sense of humor put me at ease right away. Luckily everything was clear and I don't have to go in for another one but if I did this would be the man to do it,

Dr. Nackley is efficient but spends time to address all issues with patients. Even, if he has to explain it several times. He has an awesome energetic personality and great bedside manner.
