Dr. Nelson was friendly and professional, he answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable. He removed growths on my uvula and soft palate. I was able to schedule the surgery the next day after my 1st referred visit. I did not need sedation, as I trusted him immediately during my initial visit. The injections and surgery were painless and comfortable. His staff is really friendly and knowledgable. He personally called me later that day to check on me. Great people, highly recommend them

Nelson is an excellent oral surgeon with a delightful bedside manner. But I am deeply dissatisfied with the billing and insurance staff. I was sent a bill for the anesthesia portion of my procedure, which they told me insurance had approved. I asked that they re-negotiate with Anthem, which they agreed to do. I received no further bills or communications (and assumed that all was paid in full) until over a year later, when a collection agency called to tell me that my account is delinquent.

Dr. Nelson and his staff are amazing people. You can tell they like their job. They all have smiles on their faces, trying to make their nervous patients smile and they do excellent work. They go above and beyond to ensure you are comfortable. I even got a phone call the same day my wisdom teeth removed asking how I was doing. Dr. Nelson even texts if you're too sore to talk. Not too many places do that for their patients. I would recommend everyone to Dr. Nelson. Thank you!

Dr. Nelson is truly an awesome dental surgeon! He did great work removing a decay tooth and was very friendly and confident. Even when I was done with the surgery he called from his personal phone just to check on me and make sure that my recovery was going well. Even when I was still in pain days later he answered me right away on a weekend and went the extra mile to make sure that I as his patient was taken cared of. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Dr. Nelson and his staff are welcoming and comforting. I recently had a tooth extraction and started the implant process. I have a lot of confidence in his ability. His dental assistant, Sarah is great too!

Dr Nelson and his staff are awesome. I had IV sedation for my procedure it went smoothly. Dr Nelson explained everything to me in advance. I would recommend them to anyone. Dr Nelson called later in the day to check on me. I arrived 15 minutes early for my appointment and was taken back right on time to get things started.

Dr.Nelson&Simone were exceptional professional and made me comfortable and at ease. I haven't had good experiences with dentists and I can now say that If ever i need to see the dentist I'll happily go to Dr Nelson because I know that I'll be very well cared for! Thank you so much Dr Nelson&Simone you really give me a reason to smile!
