  1. Jackie says:

    Nash has a poor Medical Dept. Have a friend that was injured there and he was not taken to the hospital. Subsquentally no medical professional looked at his injury. 9 months later he received surgery after finally seeing an outside doctor. Little or no pain medication was administered even though ordered my his surgeon.
