Patient Comments (2)
in Carptinteria, CA |
Dr. Nelson has been my primary care physician for 25 years. He is patient, professional, always willing to listen to you and explain what's going on in laymen's terms. Dr. Nelson never jumps to surgical solutions. There is always a reasoned progressive process to deal with problems. Front office issues used to drive me nuts, but since about 2014 or so the office runs much smoother. Occasionally wait times become excessive, but no worse than other MDs.

Extremely knowledgeable in the practice of medicine; concerned, compassionate, and empathetic; takes as much time as necessary for individual health m, diagnosis, and treatment. Dr. Nelson is a terrific, caring and professional family doctor!
