Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Careful and kind
My minor daughter has two injections from Dr Nelson. I was present for both procedures, and we were so nervous because she'd never had an injection before. Dr Nelson was careful to ensure the injections went in exactly the right spots and answered all our questions patiently and clearly. I have no way to compare with another injection doctor, but out of the half dozen doctors she's seen recently, Dr Nelson has been one of the best. I'm grateful to her surgeon, Dr J Scott Price at ProOrtho, for sending her to see Dr Nelson.

Wonderful Doctor
I saw Dr Nelson for an injection in my neck for a herniated disk. He explained everything, took his time with my IV (IVs are always hard with my veins), and was pleasurable to chat with. I would highly recommend Dr Nelson to anyone.

Dr Nelson did a cortisone shot for me and my wife. I have had many shots by other providers and this Dr was the first that really put me and my wife in a lot of pain during the procedure. won't ever go back to him and my wife went to a different Dr for her second shot.

The best pain management Doctor I have ever been to (out of many) from a decades old life threatening automobile injury. A primary care provider supplies my medications. The attached is simply solid, honest information.
