Dr. Nash was a caring, compassionate, and highly professional individual who thoroughly explained all my options. I left having had a cortisone injection in my knee and the next day I am having minimal pain and walking almost normally. He gave me lots of non surgical options to try to give me...more

I chose Dr. Nash, because he performed arthroscopic surgery on my husband’s knee over 10 years ago. It alleviated pain for a few years until he needed a total knee replacement. He did a great job! He is experienced and easy to talk with. I feel he is truly interested in me and my well-being.
