I would and have highly recommended Dr Nathanson to family and friends. In addition to his knowledge and professionalism, he makes you feel like you are his most important patient. I have gone to him for years. He is a great asset to the medical and patient community.
in Burlington, CT |
I've been going to Dr. Nathanson for over 30 years. He's a skilled doctor with a wealth of knowledge. He goes out of his way to make sure that his patients are taken care of. Even calls scripts in to the pharmacy as you are sitting in his office.
Hartford, CT |
Doctor is good and professional, but both times I have come here, I have waited at least 45 minutes to be seen. I have been here for an hour now, and have yet to be seen. To me, that is an excessive waste of a patient's time. I can't even speak to the quality of care because I am so annoyed at sitting here for an hour, and I can hear the doctor talking to someone else in the other room.

A very busy practice. However, well worth the wait. Extremely competent, professional, and caring physician. Staff is equally thoughtful, kind and accommodating.
Middletown, CT |
Dr. Nathanson is very knowledgable and clearly an expert in his field. He explains things well and does a full check on things.

I have been going to Dr. R. Nathanson for many years. He is the best! Very skilled, compassionate, caring & professional. Saved my life long ago when he realized a very small mole on the top of my ear looked different that 6 months earlier... beginning cancer, had to be removed at U Conn by Moes surgery. He is very positive. I enjoy seeing him every 6 months for my checkups.
in Hartford, CT |
Dr. Nathanson is awesome. He took care of my problem with the greatest of ease and explained to me if I needed additional medical treatment and if I didn't use him make sure that they would follow the same procedure that he recommended. It can't get any better than that.

I have been going to Dr. Nathanson for almost 20 years. Has caught early stage melanoma on 3/4 occasions and recommended excellent surgeon.
