John was my hip dr. for seven years and performed my left hip surgery successfully 7 years ago. with my right hip surgery, he must have been in a hurry in the surgical suite the morning of because I have been in tremendous pain for 11 months. he implanted me with a metal ball, after asking not to use metal, pushed the hip cup under my hip flexor and I had to have revision surgery to release the flexor; the hip is not stationed fully inside my pelvis, causing me pain when I bend, reach, etc. I have had 3 different surgeons opinions on this hip and they each stated this hip replacement was not correct. I have still going to through physical therapy to try and elevate my pain.

Dr. Nash is very knowledgeable and very personable. I very much appreciated the fact that he took time explaining my X-rays in detail but in easy to understand terminology. He offered me an option to my knee issues which I never even considered but accepted and am very thankful. I highly recommend him.

This was the first visit with Dr Nash. He was very attentative to my overall health and life situations. He explained in detail the condition of my knees and advised what my choices of treatment. I was glad to learn I did not need knee replacements. The time he spent with me was positive and he never acted like he needed to move along to the next patient. If you need an orthopedist he you man.
