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.
