Dr. Nason's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nason "Robert Nason was born in the former Soviet republic of Moldova. He and his parents were resettled in Houston, Texas when he was 3 years old. He grew up in Houston and mostly in Fort Worth, Texas. He attended Rice University, graduating Magna cum Laude. He went on to obtain his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He discovered his passion for otolaryngology in his 3rd year of medical school and went on to his residency at Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri. He spent 5 clinical years learning ENT and another 3 years performing full-time NIH-funded bench research at the university. This experience fortified his desire to be a pure clinician as he went on to pursue a pediatric ENT fellowship at the University of California – San Diego. He came to Austin after the fellowship and has been practicing ever since. Dr. Nason is one of only 6 fellowship trained pediatric ENT's in Austin and is proud to use his knowledge to serve both the adult and pediatric populations. On a personal note, he is married with 2 children. He likes to spend his free time running and cycling. He also grew up playing tennis and ultimate frisbee."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nason "I pride myself on truly listening to my patients and partnering with them to find the right solution to their problems. I provide my patients with everything that I know about their problem...from labwork results to reviewing images together to discussing all available treatment options...I then educate them on the underlying pathophysiology of their problem and the important aspects relevant to their management. It is only after this point that we come up with a plan of action together. I empower my patients to be involved in every aspect of their care in a sincere fashion. The decisions I make are based on my medical knowledge and also factor in how I would treat members of my own family with similar problems. "

Dr. Nason saved my husbands life from Stage IV throat cancer. After 5 minutes of meeting him in an ER he had to deliver the bad news and he did it in the most compassionate way you could image. He got us into treatment in record time and then performed his surgery. We are a year out and I still can not say enough about his skill and compassion. Our family just loves him. We are forever connected and I would recommend him to anyone!

After waiting for months for a pediatric ENT in Corpus to see our 11 year old we were told his condition was severe and needed immediate surgery. When they went to book his surgery it was for 2 months out and the dr could only do part at that time - then in a few months we would do another. I decided to get a 2nd opinion and went to Dr. Nason who was so highly recommended. He had us in his office quickly - CT scan done and surgery scheduled within 1.5 weeks. Extremely confident in him!

I would highly recommend Dr. Nason to family and friends. He cares about his patients on a personal level and really LISTENS to his patients and it is hard to find a doctor of his caliber and expertise. Most importantly, he does what is best for his patient. You will get the best care with Dr. Nason and he works hard to get the right diagnosis and treatment plan that will be best for you! If anyone in my family needs an ENT, he is my only choice! His assistant, Jennifer, is wonderful!

Doctor Robert nason is the best doctor I've ever had, he has the most beautiful smile that draws you in. He's awesome in a lot of ways but most of all he's reassuring and attentive to his patients, I just had thyroid surgery and it was a success he told me after having the surgery things would be a whole lot better. And he was absolutely right!! I'm now able to do what I was unable to before, which is keeping food down and stabilizing my weight I'm now stronger then ever!!! Thanks doctor nason.

Great experience. He made an accurate diagnosis and took the time to explain the treatment options and the reasons for them. We discussed risks and benefits. It's just obvious that he cares.

Dr. Nason was very good at telling me what I already knew. I scheduled an appt. with him was because he had such open availability & I needed to see a doctor for my ear ASAP. The front office was great but I was the first 1st appointment of the day & I saw him walk in 30 minutes after my scheduled appt. He had me do tests and came with the same diagnosis (cant wait to see that bill). I would never recommend Dr. Nason to anyone, the he was unable to help with ANYTHING or how to avoid recurrence.
in Liberty Hill, TX |
Due to billing issues cannot recommend. Tried since July to determine issue they claimed check sent in May to their office never received. A second check was sent in July and cashed. In early Oct the first check from May was cashed as well. Numerous attempts to call business manager & email resulted in no returned check or calls. Seems impossible to reach a real person for a problem that has existed since May to the end of Dec.
