Dr Nelson performed my colonoscopy at Tri-City Surgery center. He and his staff were outstanding. Terrific people. The facility and staff at Tri-City were also the best. Great experience.

Dr. Nelson and his team were very friendly and helpful. I was able to get an appointment quickly and they scheduled my surgery for the next Monday. Surgery was smooth and I was able to follow up any time. Dr. Nelson even gave me a phone call within a few hours to address my concerns and made time for me the next morning. They were wonderful to work with. They listen and care.

Dr Nelson performed surgery on my husband and he and his staff are wonderful. Very professional and caring. They got us in quickly and when we arrived for appointment they got us in on time didn't have to wait forever to go back and see Dr. Got him scheduled for surgery quickly also. While there I had a question not related to my husbands issue and when he was done with my husband he took care of my quick issue while we were there. Didn't require us to make appointment and come back.
