    Dr. Nassab performed carpal tunnel on my right hand June 2017. I had absolutley no pain or complications from the surgery. Dr. Nassab has a great bedside manner, is humorous, polite and caring. I will have him do any future surgeries on me and I recommend him highly. Shelly W.

    I was recommended to Dr. Nassab by my former Doctor that was moving out of town. He wanted to make sure I was left with someone that cares about their patients like him. He HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Dr. Nassab and I see why. Now I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to everyone with hand injuries. Thank you Dr. NASSAB and staff.

    Unsurpassed compassion, skill, and overall "bedside manner."

    I can't say enough about Dr. Nassab. My son had a horrible accident while working in Kansas City. Dr. Nassab was quick to diagnosis my son with compartment syndrome and immediately took him to surgery after one week in the hospital he was released to drive the long drive home to Maryland. He went the extra mile to call us on the road and gave us his cell phone if we needed him. He also lined up a doctor for us to see in Washington D.C for his follow up visit. I can not thank this man enough

    First off I love this guy. I was recommended to him by my Mom. He has a great personality and excellent bedside manor. He's very good at what he does and cares about his patients. That's why my wife will be going to him next year. Thanks again Dr Nassab for everything.

    Dr. Nassab is not only orthopedic surgeon, he is a warm hearted person who has never suggested a surgery to me that was not a necessary one. He has performed surgery on me & I have to say that, going into surgery, I have never felt to so confident. I tell everyone how good he is, & I always will !! He is beyond awesome & I am thrilled that he is my doctor !!!

    Dr. Nassab performed carpal tunnel surgery on my left and right wrists. After surgery followed with excellent therapy and care, I regained feeling in both hands. I am very pleased with Dr. Nassab. He is a very competent and professional physician

    Dr. Nassab is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He is always so helpful and friendly. I had a surgery October 2014, my first surgery ever, and he helped calm me down before the procedure. Aside from being an amazing doctor and surgeon, he always has a joke to tell and a smile on his face. I would recommend Dr. Nassab to anyone.

    As a veteran doctor-attendee, Pleasantly surprised by Paul. Immediately upon his introduction, I was relaxed. Came to see him after MRI found an issue with my wrist, I cannot wait to see him again. Best bedside manner, came HIGHLY recommended from my OBGYN, didn't cattle rush me out of my office visit; he was kind, funny, gentle, sincere and drew visual aids for a complete understanding of my injury. Instead of corralling me immediately to surgery, the methods of healing he suggested were A+.

    Dr.Nassau treats you like a bestfriend. I feel so comfortable talking to him about what is going on. He is the first Dr.to ever call me after I had to cancel an appointment. Everything he has done for me has been great. I have osteoarthritis. He always helps me any way he is able. Thank you so much for your kindness.
