"Dr. Nau is treating my left eye for AMD. He has been doing periodic injections and has been lengthening the time between visits gradually, and will continue this as long as the eye is stable. I tend to ask lots of questions and he answers them all in terms that even an old retired engineer can understand. "

"Dr Nau is fine and I have no issues with him. The only thing is the frustration in dealing with the staff in that office. I go back and forth between his office here in Denver and a doctor I see at my other residence in Florida. I always ask the people at Dr Nau’s office to fax his notes on me to my Florida doctor. Either they don’t do it at all or I have to ask them 2 or 3 times before they actually do it."

"Dr. Nau is awesome! His expertise runs deep and provides great advice and recommendations. Did eye surgeries for glaucoma and it went super smoothly with amazing results. Even the little things around putting drops in my eyes and testing pressure is a much better experience than any other ophthalmologist I've worked with."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
