Dr. Nash has the caring and personality of a therapist and the experience and skill of a gifted surgeon. I've never met a surgeon that was genuine and personable like Dr. Nash. He takes time with his patients, is extremely thorough and caring towards all his patients. He looks at the whole person and does not use a cookie cutter approach in his treatment plans. He's a genuinely down-to-earth, loving and passionate professional--one in a million. Very grateful to have had his gifted hands in performing my THR.

Thoughtful, kind, professional and thorough. Usually late because he takes time with his patients. My surgery was uneventful and my recovery has been right on course. Would recommend him to someone having knee surgery.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Nash for several years. He is a wonderful Dr. Never feel like he’s rushing you. Patiently answers all questions. Did a fine job on my knee with arthroscopic surgery. Yes, he’s chronically late because he spends as much time as needed with each and every patient. Just bring a good book; he’s worth waiting for.

Was in the office 4/17/19 @ 10:00am. Set up for manipulation of my knee @ 6:45am 4/18/19. Hospital call on 4/17/19 @ 2:00pm. Scheduling called me @ 4:pm to say insurance was not confirmed.I called Cigna @ 4:45pm.At 5:10pm they confirmed everything was a go. I called CSM no answer. Called Hospital no answer. Someone dropped the ball. Now I have to wait 6 days. Don't be leave someone tried hard enough.

The wait time in the exam room was awfully long... however, From the recommendations from 3 or 4 people, I was willing to tough that part out ! He is intelligent, compassionate, and listened to my history. I am hoping to have him do my hip replacement in May,

He’s a good doctor but the wait time to see him is ridiculous. I’ve been to see him twice. First time I waited 1 1/2 hrs. Second time was 2 hrs. I have a bad back as well as the knee problem I went to him for and sitting in the exam room for 2 hrs. Did not help my back pain.

Dr. Nash replaced my first hip in 2008 and my second hip in 2010. Replacing my hips gave me my life back. I can now get out and enjoy my life without giving a thought to my hips. My favorite form of exercise is Zumba and I do it frequently and with absolutely no pain or problem from my hips. Dr. John Nash is an incredible surgeon and also a wonderful and very caring person.
