What People Say About Dr. Douglas Nelson, MD
Reply
ZERO stars if possible. I saw Dr Nelson for abdominal pain, bloating among other symptoms complicating my day 2 day life. Didn’t listen,talked to me like a child giving me analogy after analogy about what my symptoms possibly meant. Stated tests wouldn’t be necessary due to my age (30) & sent me on my way with a prescription to try for a month. Looked at me & said don’t schedule an appointment after a month just call and tell me you’re cured. $400 later- & 3 days I ended up in the ER. Stay clear
