No Complaints

Having spent 34 years in law enforcement, and 34 years in the military (active reserves), I like to think I have a pretty good take on folks. I have been seeing dermatologists for years. I started seeing Dr. Nahm approximately 10 years ago on the recommendation of a friend. I can certainly live with any minor issues (30 minutes in waiting room, etc.). All I care about is the service the doctor provides. If you are looking for someone to sugarcoat your issues, he's not your guy. He cuts to the chase, gives you his recommendations, then "you" make the choice. How simple is that? If you don't ask questions (like most people), that's nobody's fault but yours. If you’re elderly, and a little hesitant to be inquisitive, bring a friend or relative that can help you. Dr. Nahm has done a fine job, I have no complaints.

Do not be fooled

He is the exact opposite of what you want as a doctor. Do not be fooled by his credentials. My mom had one of the worst experiences of her life, he blamed her, put her in harms way, and then double billed her.

He is excellent in what he does as a doctor. He found a small black dot on my lower back, biopsied it and said we have to this checked out. I have a lot of moles and as a child had some bad sun burns. Two weeks later I get a phone call saying I need to be scheduled for surgery. I had the surgery and now have a two and half inch scar. What I was told is he got all the tissue that could lead to melonoma. He said I was three qaurters of the way to having melonoma. I only felt one spot during the surgery which he quickly added more local anesthesia. He knows his stuff and I will continue to recommed him. And If you have to wait you can watch a movie in the exam room while you wait. Very professinal.

GREAT RECOMMENDATION I went to Dr. Nahm on the recommendation of a colleague and he was fabulous! Within moments of entering the exam room, he was able to diagnose that which had baffled both my primary physician and dentist. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Best of all, he gave me samples of the prescription he recommended, which worked immediately so I never had to fill the prescription. I was literally in and out in about 15 min. His staff is very friendly, as well.
