    How was your appointment with Dr. Nahm?

    Aug 18, 2018
    Dr Nahm is compassionate and has an impeccable eye when it comes to identifying a skin abnormality aka skin cancer. He cares very much about the cosmetic outcome as well, so that the patient is confident and comfortable with the outcome. I would not see anyone else to care for my skin and have referred many friends and family, all who feel the same way.
