Dr. Nash gave me a new knee and a new lease on life! I appreciate the fact that we tried conservative treatments for a couple years before surgery was necessary. He and his staff are absolutely amazing! They’re kind, knowledgeable, understanding, sympathetic, and helpful.

Dr. Nash is the best! My visit with him was very informative, efficient, and a good experience. He comes in knowing all about your recent medical history, does a thorough exam of the problem and makes a decision on how to solve it along with your input. He also seems very concerned and caring about his patients. Most importantly he listens to you. I would recommend Dr. Nash to anyone with a knee problem.

Dr. Nash is the absolute best! Not only has he taken great care of my health, but is easy to speak with at every appointment. It’s rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touches and care for a patient, as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. Without Dr Nash, I would not be walking and moving pain free. I highly recommend him, especially if you have hip/knee concerns!

Dr. John Nash is a great doctor and his staff is great. Center for Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics staff & doctors treat their patients like they are one of the family. Dr. Nash, I would highly recommend 10X over for your knees care. If you have a bone or joint problem, go to CforSM&O first because you will get the problem fixed the first time and you don't have to try & go to someone else to fix your problem. The staff @ CforSM &O does a great job and they are friendly & respectful to all the patients the see in the office. Keep up the great job you'll doing. I give 10 star ?? rating and a double thumbs up. Dr. Nash I would give him a 10 star ?? rating and a two thumbs up.
