Dr Nash was great! I was embarrass and apprehensive about mentioning details of my medical situation and Dr Nash was so professional and compassionate. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much Dr Nash. However, I left there thinking of two ladies,staff, assisting dr Nash during my exam. I actually thought of them during my drive home, 2 hours away, and for two days afterwards, feeling ashamed., embarrassed. After my exam Dr Nash and I were discussing my situation, with my back to Dr Nash as we spoke. I was sitting on the exam table as she was busy behind me . So unbeknownst to staff I was actually looking at them as Dr and I spoke. I saw Staff point to what I assumed was my chart on the laptop one of them was holding, and both started to giggle silently. They looked up and saw I was looking directly at them, and actually looked scarred as they realized I was looking at them, all the time I was still talking to Dr Nash. This was so embarrassing, condescending. I finished my conversation with Dr Nash and didn’t say anything. Staff made the effort to be nice right before I exited the exam room but we all three knew what transpired. I was so engrossed in my medical concerns and I am quiet by nature. But I have been thinking of this for several days. Dr Nash, your bedside manners again were excellent. Thank you. Your staff however might need some training. I apologize for this somewhat negative review but I felt it was important that Dr Nash was aware of this.

I've been living in the North San Diego area for almost three years now and have desperately tried to find a dermatologist that could treat my psoriasis. I've seen other doctors in the area, but Dr. Nash by far is myfavorite. She is very pleasant, listened to my concerns, actually checked the spots all over my body and gave me her assessment and available treatment options. She seemed to care very much about my condition and it was very comforting. Jennifer, her medical assistant was also very sweet and getting my prescriptions filled were not a problem. I received a call right away from the pharmacy and I was still in the parking lot. The staff at the office were all very nice and I am so happy that I finally found a knowledgeable dermatologist that I will stick to. Look no further! Dr. Nash is terrific!

So happy I found a wonderful dermatologist! Was recommended to the practice by some neighbors after having such a hard time finding a dermatologist that wasn’t just about cosmetic procedures. I had been suffering through a terrible skin allergyafter having my first baby (4 months ago) and I was desperate for help. It wasn’t easy to get an appointment but I’m so glad I was patient enough to wait. I followed the doctor’s recommendations and in 2 DAYS I have my life back. The rashes on my body are almost entirely gone and best of all I no longer feel like I have ants crawling all over my body. Thank you, Dr. Nash. I’m so happy I could cry!

Zocdoc & office reminded me of the appointment but NO ONE said the location was changed. Dr. Nash arranged for me to see her at alternate location, but front office staff was rude and unprofessional. Dr Nash deserves better representation andher patients deserve higher respect and service! Inside assistant was helpful and enjoyable. I am an 8 year patient so know this was a one-time fluke..

I made a mistake in scheduling my appointment and the front office squeezed me in right away. Dr. Nash is thorough and an excellent listener. She gave me an injection and I felt no discomfort! She is by far the nicestDermatologist I have met and I look forward to my yearly check. She has my highest recommendation.

I am a repeat customer and, given my complexion and living in SoCal, probably will continue to be. Dr. Nash is technically proficient and very pleasant to visit. I have complete confidence in her and leave decisions about my skin cancer issues to her. She knows, I don't.

I see Dr. Nash for Alopecia Areata. Treatment has been a success,as much as it can be for now. I would recommend anyone and everyone. Five stars.

Dr. Nash saw me for ten minutes (I timed it on my phone) and she refused to look at anything besides my original diagnosis. I wanted her to quickly look at my arms to make sure my skin was okay, butshe said I need to make another appointment for that. I paid an unreasonable amount for the time and quality of care she provided. She also lectured me on things I already knew. Her assistant did a terrible job keeping track of the medications I was already on and never asked me about new ones.

Dr. Nash is very personable and has excellent bedside manner, I was with my former dermatologist for over 13 years and was afraid I could never find another one to feel a bond with and that really cared . I feelthat Dr. Nash has the same qualities as my former Dermatologist and am looking forward to an equally rewarding Dr. patient relationship with Dr. Nash. I highly recommend Dr. Nash. Sharon O.
