He is the best! My husband and I both go to him. Everyone makes you feel that you are their only patient. I recommend them to everyone.

I have seen many orthopedic doctors over the last 30 something years but none as caring as Dr Nash he takes the time to listen to my concerns and give me the best answers he can and make me feel like person not just another person in his office. He has made me feel comfortable with my upcoming knee replacement and after 10 other surgeries by others I feel better about this than I did with other Doctors. So 5 stars Doctor Thanks Randy D
in Chattanooga, TN |
Front desk staff are courteous and easy to work with in the setting up of appointments and filling out paperwork. Medical and x-ray staff are courteous and clear with directions and procedures. Dr. Nash is very engaging and interested in my concerns. He explained all options available to me. He did not rush me through his instructions nor my questions. I was pleased and relaxed with Dr. Nash's office manner.
