What People Say About Dr. Alex Nelson, MD

Dr. Nelson is the first doctor in years to look at the big picture of what is causing my pain and to go from there. I respect him greatly professionally, and enjoy bantering with him. I am many times better off than two years ago. I drive 100 miles to see him even though there is a provider in my town. I also highly recommend his PA, and his staff is very good to work with.

I've been seen Dr. Nelson for a few months for several pain issues I have. He is very professional and takes his time with each vist I have with him. I have really enjoyed going to him and working with him and his staff on my pain management.
