Patient Testimonial
Dear Dr. Nakashian,

Six months ago was the worst moment of my life. Everything just seemed to stop. While in the ambulance rushing to the emergency room in two feet of snow and then lying in the ER, my mind kept reeling and I was panicking, “Oh my God I cut my finger off! Is my career over? Will I ever be able to use my hand again? What am I going to do at 45 years of age?!?’ And then you entered the emergency room.

From the moment you walked in until now, I have never felt more comfortable, more confident, and more trusting in a doctor as I have with you. Your calm demeanor and amazing bedside manor in the ER was almost unbelievable. Your patience, kindness and incredible respect in the ER and every single time I saw you in your office have been above and beyond anything I have ever experienced with a medical professional.

And here we arc, six month later, and my finger is basically healed and has healed exactly as you said it would. I will be able to work again! My career is not over! And even though this accident is still hard to get my head around at times, I know I will be able to move forward with full function of my finger because of you.

There will never be enough “Thank Yous” and there will never be a way for me to express how beyond lucky I was and still am that you were my doctor in the ER and through everything. So all I can say, on behalf of myself, my wife, my sons, and ray friends and family, is THANK YOU for everything you have done for me. I will never, ever forget you or the care I received from you and Brielle Orthopedics. Every patient who has you as their doctor is blessed beyond words, as I have been

Dr. Nakashian completed two incredibly challenging surgeries on my elbow. It is because of him that I have the ability to use this arm with full function. He was amazing from my introduction to him all the way through my final follow-up appointment. There not enough words to explain how thankful I am for his skills as a surgeon.

Dr. Nakashian had seen my son over a year ago for a different sports injury. Upon entering the room, he greeted him and said, "long time no see, Good to see you again." I think part of patient care is really making the patient feel important, no matter how old or young. Thank you Dr. Nakashian for doing just that!

I have been seen for three different problems one in my shoulder wine was surgery on my knee and surgery to repair to finger joints I have always been treated very professional by the staff as well as the doctors I would always recommend them to anyone who needs an orthopedic doctor. My first time there I was very surprised that I was able to get an appointment as fast as I did. I have rheumatoid arthritis and many complications from it they have made my life a lot less painful .
