Rachel M. Nash, AGPCNP-BC, is a member of Summit Medical Group's Gastroenterology team. Ms. Nash cares for patients suffering from a wide range of acute and chronic gastrointestinal conditions and diseases. Her prior experience includes time serving as a nurse on a medical surgical unit caring for patients with various gastrointestinal diseases.

Ms. Nash has always loved learning and helping others – two things she gets to do simultaneously as a health care provider. She works off a model of empathy and active listening stating, “I will always advocate for my patients. My goal is for them to feel confident in my care, trusting that I will do my best to improve their health and overall wellness.”
Ms. Nash is passionate about inclusivity and feels strongly about the group Best Buddies International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. When not caring for patients, Ms. Nash enjoys spending time reading, cooking, exercising, and hiking.
