    Dr. Nelson was unavailable and with enthusiasm, his office lady tried to do an in depth interview over the phone. While I waited to speak with Dr. Nelson she proceeded to do an interview. Her leading questions wanted to know history back to childhood. I was an adult in my late sixties that had come to Dr. Nelson for anxiety. The more questions she asked the more animated she became. As Dr. Nelson was still busy, I ended the call. About ten minutes the County Sheriff called to say he was coming by, at Dr. Nelson's request, for a wellness check. At no time did Dr. Nelson visit with me nor was there any indications in our appointments of any drastic plans concerning my health. I called Dr. Nelson immediately and told me that he should have talked to ME before calling in the law and that he should take time and reflect on his actions. I had expected him to be a trust worthy professional and felt he should make his decision on accurate, firsthand knowledge and conversation.
