He's wants your money. Staff are pretty but uneducated. Always behind. They don't honor their guarantees. Glasses took a month. They're trained to make excuses. Go somewhere else.

It is money up front & then your eyes next. If you have Medicare & a secondary insurance, if Medicare doesn't pay for your service but your insurance does, you have to pay up front and them yourself submit the paperwork to your secondary insurance. The staff is too lazy to do this for you. They do not want to wait for their money but want it immediately out of pocket from you. Also, what can be accomplished in one eye visit, they do in two so they get more money. Dr should consider patients.

I believe Dr. Nelson is a good surgeon however the practice is focused on money making, I cannot recommend this practice because of that.
in Rock Hill, SC |
Very positive experience. Dr. Nelson and staff very professional, while being personable and friendly. Facility is very clean and well equipped. Any questions or concerns were addressed prior to surgery and the procedure was explained in a comprehensive manner. Today is the day after surgery and I'm writing this review without the need for eye glasses.
