    Dr. Nelson was my surgeon for gastric sleeve surgery in 2014. She was informative from the beginning, addressed any concerns I had from the beginning. Appreciated the program that she has set up for the surgery. I went into her office for my consult, and their office did the rest of the work. Set up every appt. that I would need during my pre surgery. (physical therapy, all of my nutritionis appt's, pysch , support group, etc etc.. My surgery was a success- easy recovery. She gave me my life.
