Dr. Christian Nahas has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I was a patient of Dr. Nahas for over 5 years. He was caring , compassionate and was reminiscent of a good old family doc from years gone by. He listened, made suggestions and always made you feel like you were being treated by family. So sad he is gone; there will never be another doc like him. I hope he and his family have nothing but wonderful things in their life. I miss you Dr. Nahas and John.
I honestly believe that Dr. Nahas thought he was doing the right thing; based on what he charged for his services and the time he spent with his patients, he was not in it for the money. In the end when he could no longer keep people on their medication, it left a lot of people with strong dependencies and nowhere else to turn. Myself, I've now seen 4 doctors with Dr. Nahas's records in hand. They all tell me the same thing, and refuse to continue my treatment. I have the support of my wife and family to stay strong and not turn to other less expensive street drugs to feed the cravings, but the temptation is staggering. If the DEA was behind this doctors downfall, they are doing more harm then good. Some patients with nowhere to turn will begin to do desperate things, it is only a matter of time. My only criticism of this doctor was that he didn't provide good referrals to continue treatment and did not allow enough time in his care to wean us down to more realistic dosages deemed acceptable by the rest of the medical community. Dr. Nahas has my full support in whatever the future holds for him, be it legal or medical board repercussions. I pray one day this will all pass and he will be able to practice once again.
I was one of his first patience.He is an excellent doctor.He got me to quit smoking and to lose weight. He saved my life. I will miss him.I will miss his pa John. He was caring. He had a great sense of humor. He was kind.He was friendly.It will be hard to not have him as my doctor.No doctor could take his place.He is a class act.I would return as his patient if he was treating patients again.He is very rare as a doctor because he took the time to talk to you and he cared.I am so sad over this.I wish him the best. I pray for him that things will come to past and he will be ok.Jesus will take care of him. V.F.
First of all the person who commented that people come from Vermont and pay cash for their meds is not well informed. Dr. Nahas does not dispense medicine so therefore they are not paying him cash for their meds. They pay cash for the office appointment because he was not accepting alot of insurance, the cost of paper work out weighed the advantage in his pain mangement practice. I have never met a a more caring Doctor, you may wait long but he gives you his full intention when it's your turn. People love to gossip and spread rumors and it can be very hurtful to others. Reap what you sow, or should I say what comes around goes around.
