I am so happy with Dr. Nelson's care. I was able to express concerns to him that other doctors had dismissed as irrelevant. He not only listens well, he's also willing to give his honest opinion about my concerns. As a result, he's recommended to my primary care physician that i be given diagnostic testing for those things I brought to his attention. Finally, we can get to the bottom of what's causing my symptoms. I trust him more than I've trusted a doctor in many, many years.
