Great doctor—long wait
Dr. Nash is great but waited 2 1/2 hours past appt time to be seen. He took time to answer questions, explain X-rays, talk through procedure and even what my post-cancer situation would mean. I recommend him highly just had bad experience with waiting.

The best orthopedic MD that I have experienced
I anticipated a wait because Dr. Nash cares about each patient beyond their knees and legs. I do not mind as I recognize that he will spend as much time with me as others. He carefully reviews films and asks about history of the malady. He is not quick with a plan until he's explored all other options. He is very thorough.
