Paris, TN |
Dr. Nuako & Staff are hands down the best! From the front desk, to the exam room, and the lab they are outstanding! He also has his very own surgery center where he does his procedures. They are awesome as well!

Very professional. Office is run like a well-oiled machine. All of his staff are professional and friendly. Appointments are kept ON TIME, unusual for a physician these days. Takes his time, answers all of your questions completely. Highest recommendation possible. I had a colonoscopy and did the modified prep. It's worth it. You don't have to drink all of that awful goop. The insurance won't pay for it ($65 out of pocket), but I will do it again.
