Capable, caring, and reassuring are attributes I admire in Dr. Nash. He did my first total knee replacement and I'm blessed to have him as my surgeon the second time around. I'm so grateful. Angela Martin 10/11/18.

Having dealt with many orthopedic specialists in the last 40 years I can say with confidence that Dr. Nash is the finest orthopod from which I have ever had the good fortune to receive care. He and his staff are as good as it ever gets on orthopedics.

Dr Nash is a caring and compassionate surgeon. He takes time to listen and discuss your personal concerns with you. My hip replacement with Dr Nash was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It was literally life changing. I would recommend him with no reservations at all.
