Dr. Nasar has replaced parts in several of my family members as well as recently performing a full knee replacement for me. We all are very satisfied with the surgery and follow up care given by Dr. Nasar. It s so good to have function back in my knee. (Donna B. | Feb 2019 | Healthgrades)

Dr. Nasar has performed knee replacement on both of my knees, the first one was 8 years ago. The first time was so successful there was no way I would have any other doctor when I had my other knee done 3 months ago! Not only is he an expert in surgery but he also takes great care of his patients. He takes the time to listen to you and talks about options available. His office is run very efficiently and staff is always helpful. Highly recommend him! (Linda Lampaglia | Feb 2019 | Google)
