I have been seeing Dr Nahm for over 2 years. He is extremely professional, has my best interest at heart, provides me with options on the best possible care for my medical concerns and explains what he is doing and why. If you want great care, I highly recommend Dr nahm. I have refereed many friends and family to him and they all have high praise for him.

Outstanding Dermatologic surgeon. I would recommend Dr Nahm without reservation!!!
I came with my daughter for what it looked like a skin rush. The doctor started saying it was genetic and it will eventually grow and he proposed to take it away. I was terrified by what he told me and said no to the surgery. After 2 days, she had rash all over her body. I took her to the pediatrician and she said it was pityriasis rosea Gilbert, a common kids skin rash. Are you kidding me? A dermatologist that can’t even tell it’s a common rash?? I didn’t go to a cardiologist! Horrible experien

No experience at all and bad staff and doctors

I would never recommend Dr. Nahm to anybody. His office works like a factory, heading in one group in after another. When one of my prescriptions wasn't received by the pharmacy I called the office to have it resent. Dr. Nahm himself called me, he was very argumentative and rude. He indicated he told me in person this prescription wasn't covered. However, I never met with him so that wasn't possible. He realized it and proceeded to be rude and argue. Never again will I go to his office.

I'm a former patient. After today, I'm done. I went in the office and the place was full in the waiting room and in the back and nobody seemed to be moving. I asked the incompetent and rude receptionist, who was talking to a very grumpy PA or nurse and couldn't seem to understand that I'd already filled out their required info online, if it would be a long wait. I said I had meetings. She continued in her rude manner and said 30 to 45 minutes. I waited hour and 20 mins and left. Horrible office.
