we felt very comfortable with Dr Nason and her team......THANK YOU

October 13, 2016

this was my first visit with Dr Nason and I was extremely concerned about my condition and treatment moving forward. Dr Nason and her staff couldn't have been more competent and compassionate in addressing my situation. I left this appointment with more knowledge about my condition and the risk of complications related to the possible procedure we discussed. Quality care that I would recommend to anyone.

Excellent service no complaints

This was my first visit to see Dr. Nason. The wait was a little long but after meeting her and talking with her I was completely at ease with her. She talked to myself and my daughter about the problems I'm having and the options that are there and the possible treatment plans. I'd highly recommend her. Thanks for a great 1st visit
