I was a patient from the beginning when he saw patients himself, nowadays he's a paper pusher. The wait is ridiculous. If I can't be more than 15 minutes late for a visit, why is it you can keep me waiting for 3hours before being seen? After all I have things to do TOO like a job,a family, etc. I'll never go back to this practice. NEVER!!!

Not sure the effectiveness of orthopedic pain relief, but if you suspect that you have ME/CFS/Fibromyalgia or something similar please do not use this physician. Not his thing.

If I could leave no star, I would. He should not be allowed to practice medicine. The staff is rude, inconsiderate and over book. The wait is HOURS (waiting room, exam rooms & procedures), you see the doctor once other than procedures. And the procedures caused me significantly more pain, than prior to, with no follow up afterwards. He (along with PA) treat you as you are an addict, seeking only pain meds. No regard to genuine probs. Would NEVER go back EVER!

Do not go there! My health was put at risk and they never informed me of the REAL issue that was going on. I was told after surgery he didn't want to treat me but had to. You will see him ONCE, and never see him again. The office is dirty and the good people have left and so have I. You never ever ever get to speak with the anyone in office but a call center. Save yourself the headaches and PLEASE go somewhere else.

Dr Nelson is great but no longer sees patients. Since he is not as involved, the service and response time is terrible and no one seem to know what is going on there. I am changing to another physician for this reason. Now before I can see another physician, they have to have the records. It has been 2 weeks since these my records where requested from my referring physician (neuro surgeon) and they still have not received them, They have not responded to my call either.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
