Dr. Nelson's Care Philosophy

As a physician I am dedicated to providing exceptional care to my patients. I work with patients who are experiencing drooping of the eyelids or have other problems with eyelid appearance or function. The structure and appearance of your eyes directly affects your overall well-being and quality of life. Whether a patient comes to see me due to illness, injury, or simply the passage of time, I strive to increase the quality of life for my patients with every procedure.
