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.
