She is tops: Extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Great empathetic skills to go along with her medical skills.
Excellent visit with Dr. Nash-Goelitz. She has helped me greatly in the healing of my skin. It has been a blessing. I am thankful for her and I am so thankful that I was referred to her. The staff is friendly and helpful. Very good communication overall, about appointments and any updates. Thank you!
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 feel that 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.

Always a good experience even though I am being cut and burned... Great staff and doctor!
very nice doctor, she gives you time to explain and ask any question related to the problem you have.
My daughter felt very comfortable with Dr. Nash and liked her very much. She really took her time with her to make her feel comfortable.
Since this office closes for the lunch hour, the first appointments shouldn't be scheduled before 1:15 pm. I got there promptly at 12:45 pm, in case I needed to fill out any forms...but the door was locked. No one unlocked it until 1:10 pm, but then -- in fairness -- I was taken into the examining room about 10 min later. Otherwise, all was very professional....
She is very nice and kind.
What a relief! I'd been trying for months to find a dermatologist who made eye contact, listened and spoke to me rather than the computer, Dr. Nash did all that and more, Her staff and office management were excellent as well.
Excellent efficient visit as always. Dr. Nash is great
Dr. Nash -Goelitz is a friendly and warm professional. Her bedside manner is great, and she goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and that your concerns are addressed. I highly recommend her.
My visit with Dr. Alyssa Nash-Goelitz was excellent: 1. I was seen at the scheduled apppointment time, 2. Dr. Nash-Goelitz explained the procedure I was to undergo with sufficient detail on my left arm that I was not worried about it...and it went smoothly.. 3. She also explained that I should avoid heavy lifting with my left arm for acouple of weeks.
Dr. Nash is the best dermatologist that anyone could possibly want.
I was impressed with how thorough she was with my 12 year old's skin check. He has a lot of moles, as do I. She really took her time and left no part of the body unchecked, regardless of modesty. In stark contrast to my dermatologist, who rushes through and overly observes modesty. I will be switching to Dr. Nash for myself. I wish we didn't have to wait so long, though, about 30 to 40 minutes. Worth the wait though.
Dr. Nash was recommended to me by another physician. Dr. Nash was the consummate professional. Having recently moved to San Diego from Washington, DC, this was my first scan with Dr. Nash. She kept me informed throughout the exam articulating what she was seeing, what was not a problem and what she wanted to keep an eye on into the future. I would and will absolutely recommend Dr. Nash.
She is AWESOME ! My wife and I have NEVER been as impressed with a doctor . It is apparent that she graduated magna cum laude (smartest in class)from medical school .We highly recommend her to anyone seeking the best medical care.
A wonderful experience where I really felt I received outstanding care from Dr. Nash
Very professional, thorough and pleasant. My daughter liked Dr. Nash a lot.
She was very thorough and pleasant.
Dr Nash observed a problem with the back of my hand, totally separate from the reason of my consult , and took the time to ask about it and then performed a biopsy . Quick and painless and certain to give me peace of mind.
She is very professional and thorough, which really put me at ease.
Dr. Nash was very thorough and has a very compassionate and patient manner.
Dr. Nash-Goelitz is extremely personable, knowledgeable and compassionate. I saw her for a skin cancer check and was very happy with the visit. The staff is friendly and helpful. They also have a good chemical free sunscreen product. Highly recommend.
I have been seeing Dr. Nash for at least 10 years now. It is always a pleasure! She loves wjat sh does and cares about her patients.
Dr. Nash is highly professional, listens well, and is very conscientious. I would highly recommend her for any dermatological needs. Dr. Nash sees our entire family and we all love her!
Dr. Nash is an excellent Board Certified Dermatologist. I would highly recommend the services of Dr. Nash for everybody. Medical research suggests that excess exposure of the sun can contribute to melanoma, a very serious skin cancer, that can be deadly. It is imperative that people have a body check by a Board Certified Dermatologist. Dr. Nash is more than qualified to handle all types dermatological situations.
Dr Nash is such an amazing MD with such expertise. Yesterday when she took a biopsy I never felt a thing. She has a good eye for any possible skin cancers and takes care of things early on so they don't develop into something worse. And she's also very personable making me feel comfortable and relaxed. Her support staff are all very nice and efficient. Kathy Harvey
Outstanding medical techniques and delicate surgical procedures. Dr. Nash knows what she is doing and she does it well. She makes you look better than you feel.
Another good visit but kind of wish I didn't buy the recommended scar cream at the Office (it was pricy and has chemicals in it that may bother me)
I came into my appointment extremely nervous, but the entire experience was pleasant and actually pretty quick (I didn't feel rushed or anything, either). I am happy to say I got all the answers and help I needed. The entire staff is warm and friendly and I look forward to coming back again! Note: parking in the nearby structure is $4 for the first hour.
This was my first ever derm appointment, and I was treated with great care, clear explanations and her bedside manner was excellent.
Good doctor, caring and very professional.
I like how she takes her time during my appointments. I never feel like she is rushed to move on to the next patient.
Dr. Nash is very sweet and listens to your concerns. She takes the time to make sure her patient is well/healthy, not just for whatever dermatological reason she is seeing them for!
Professional,courteous and very efficient.
She is knowledgeable and friendly. Really is interested in her patients. The office staff is very efficient, too! I have been seeing dermatologists every six months for the past 25 years and Dr. Nash and Dr. Gonzalez are excellent dermatologists.
Dr. Nash is professional, friendly, and caring. She likes to get to know her patients and their families. She is careful in her treatments to make it as painless as possible. After receiving the numbing shot, I hardly feel a thing when she is performing minor skin surgery. She gives thorough skin exams and always gets the treatments right. So far lately, the wait time is less than 5 minutes to see her after my scheduled appointment time. Wow! I feel lucky to have her as my doctor.
Great bedside manner. Interested in YOU! Knowledgeable about the latest in patient care in dermatology!
Great, she is very thorough, spends time with my daughter and asks about her regimen, makes sure she understands what she is supposed to do.
