Dr. Nassab and his staff were wonderful. They took the time to explain everything in detail, not doctor speak, and answered any questions that I had with the utmost respect.

We are finally going to have to cancel our employee's surgery due to the work comp coordinator, nurse, and doctor not returning any calls. I would not use them for worker's compensation cases due to lack of communication.

Best doctor I have been to ( and I have been to a number of doctors in the KC, Las Vegas, Seattle area for various injuries/surgeries). Truly puts in the time and effort to show he cares and fully explains the diagnosis & next steps. I highly recommend anyone looking for a hand doctor in the KC area to go see Dr. Nassab. You will not be disappointed. Thank you!

Dr. Nassab performed bilateral carpal tunnel release surgery on me over 5 years ago. It went unbelievably well. I had suffered for several years and after the surgery I had IMMEDIATE relief of numbness and pain in both my arms/hands. Able to sleep through the night without the symptoms waking me up! I don't understand patients that don't use a certified hand surgeon for this surgery. Not only is Dr. Nassab an expert, but he is extremely kind and caring. Highly recommend!

Reconstructed my UCL in my thumb few years ago. Got me in faster than expected and was so professional. I was worried I would not play ball again and he made me 100% again. By far the best experience I have ever had with a doctor.

I had a very bad accident several years ago and Dr. Nassib put my arm back together. I have no doubt without his surgical expertise at best I'd have no function at worst amputation. He is the most caring doctor I've ever known. Anyone would be truly blessed to have him as their doctor. I will be eternally grateful to him. Ronda

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.
