Today, the average time a Doctor spends with his patient is said to be 4 minutes. However, I have found Dr Christian Nasr to be the EXCEPTION. He spent more than an hour detailing my personal medical history, results of my tests and possible concerns. He asked thorough questions while inputting my responses. He reviewed prior results of my Medical history, tests and prior responses to questions I had answered. He was very patient with my confusion asking plenty of questions to ascertain correct responses. I find him absolutely wonderful both in his practice, wisdom and care. I couldn't be in better hands and count myself blessed knowing he is the Gate Keeper towards any further medical concerns I might face down the road.

iIt took one hour and 5minutes to make the appointment and talk to the correct person to order ultrasound . Than took three followup calls to get the script to St Rita's to have the ultrasound done. I wanted to connect via MyChart but since it was two years since my last visit I could not use the system. makes no sense to me. Dr Nasr and his staff once I got there did a great job. it's getting to that point that is frustrating. i will gladly come back two years for my check up. thank you.

Through the years of seeing Dr. C. Nasr, I have never had a bad experience with either him or any member of his staff. Because of the care that I have received from him and the curtesy that I have received, I had recommended him to my sister. I drive approximately 45 miles to get to the Main Campus and because of the care that I have received since 2010, I do not mind the trip.
