I am so thankful to have found Dr. Nelson. I feel like my life has changed since walking into his office. I have stage 4 endometriosis. Dr. Nelson and his nurse Danielle are so attentive. They take their time to fully listen to you. I have never felt so respected by a medical professional. I appreciate being treated the way I deserve. Thank you Dr. Nelson!!

Totally amazing. A genius at robotic surgery. I had no scar whatsoever from my surgery. Also, I have had health professionals compliment how perfectly placed my internal organs still are after having a complete robotic hysterectomy by Dr. Nelson. However, I do have one criticism of Dr. Nelson - he is way too handsome and young-looking to be a gynecologist, especially one of his caliber. Not to mention how extremely considerate, humble, and nice he is. His nurse is equally exceptional.

If I could give Dr. Nelson a 10 I would. He's amazing! He's incredibly patient, compassionate, and truly listens. I've been trying to get pregnant for 7.5 years at all 3 major fertility clinics in Colorado. Dr. Nelson is the first doctor who actually listened to me; I had a severe case of endo that he excised less than 2 weeks ago. He called me from home before and after surgery to check on me and make sure all questions were answered, and I couldn't be happier!
