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

October 13, 2016

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

Efficient

October 13, 2015

Dr Nason and her team are outstanding. Dr Nason was contacted by my oncologist to request that she see me as soon as possible due to concerns over findings on my diagnostic tests. I was called s few hours later and scheduled with Dr Nason the next day. She and her team exceeded my expectations. They made me feel welcome as a first time patient, were expert in executing their duties and kind and compassionate in delivering care. I could see clearly that Doctor Nason leads her team within authority and clarity and she takes time to instruct her team with clarity. She explained my procedure in detail and was very effective in diffusing my anxiety. I'd highly recommend this practice to my colleagues, family and friends.
