Dr Nelson and his staff at UCI are without question the finest cancer treatment team in Southern California . He saved my life.. When others were confused and questioning, Dr Nelson did not hesitate to move forward quickly with his team to diagnose and treat. From the very first appointment I was made to feel that I was the only patient at UCI , and was immediately put at ease . there always available. Not only the finest oncologist, it's an honor to call you friend. Thank you, God Bless you

Dr. Nelson & Staff (Jane, Christina, Stephanie, and Blake), are exceptional and trustworthy. I have been going to the Oncology dept with Nelson and staff for the past 10+ years, at both orange, and Irvine, and have never been disappointed.

Dr E Nelson"s knowledge and experience saved me three years of suffering. A different doctor was going to start me on Chemo but fortunately I got a second opinion before going ahead. Dr Nelson's experience and knowledge suggested a slower, wait and see approach. Because of this I avoided 3 years of Chemo. Certainly Chemo might become necessary but three years ago it was not necessary. He is extremely patient answering all my questions even tho I have asked the same ones before.

Dr. Nelson is incredibly caring, thorough, and competent. He really listens and understands my concerns and needs. He explains everything in a way that I can understand. He has even spent time explaining my condition to my daughter, who is also a physician. I recommend him enthusiastically!

I hope that none of my family or friends will need his professional services, but if they did I would not hesitate to recommend him. He is an exceptional oncologist and a fine individual.
