He was the first doctor to sit and listen to me and look at my MRIs and Cat Scans and Xrays. Very nice great bedside manner. He had me do everything before to help to prevent me from having surgery. nothing worked so now we are doing surgery. Awesome Doctor thank God I found him

Back in May 2018, I visited Muir Orthopedics because of incapacitating pain in my lower back. Dr. Nelles saw me after had x-ray pictures taken prior to entering the examination area. After a quick mediocre exam, he had nothing to tell me. The only words he had to me is that the x-ray pictures do not show anything significant and I had to go and get MRI. Dr. Nelles suggested I do what I was already doing and that I should see him after the MRI. I am very disappointed by this doctor.
