in Marysville, WA |
The word Cancer brings about all kinds of emotions. From the moment I went to Dr. Nelson's office I was confident I was in good hands. His receptionist was kind, helpful and welcoming. Dr. Nelson took all the time I needed, answering all the questions I had and explained every step of the potential procedures. I cannot recommend Dr. Nelson highly enough! He is a rare surgeon, combining both superior skill and kindness and concern. I trust He will see this to know of my deep appreciation.

I think Dr. Nelson was a old General Practitioner in another life..like the ones that used to make house calls. He is so caring, and listens to my concerns, and explains things in a manner that my husband could understand. I am a retired nurse, and he is one of the nicest doctors I have ever known. He also is very knowledgeable about what he does. I felt very calm and reassured about having my surgery after talking to him. The surgery went well without a hitch. I would highly recommend him.
