His tone is extremely condescending. He's not very good at rare skin conditions. He will milk you for more visits but yet tell you everything you have is "normal". Be careful with his nurse Evelyn. Ask the doctor your questions directly because she likes to answer for him.

Recently started using this practice for my daughter's skin condition. Dr. Nelson and staff are great. They listen to your concerns and are so friendly. My daughter's skin has improved drasticly since starting treatment. They were our last hope and answered our prayers. I highly recommend them.

Dr. Nelson and staff are very professional, kind, personable, and knowledgeable. My appointments (2) have had no waiting time, I have been called back shortly after sitting down. That is not what you expect when visiting a doctor's office. I would highly recommend Dr. Nelson and Johnson Dermatology.

My skin conditions are Hailey Hailey and pemphigus vulgaris. Dr. Nelson is extremely knowledgeable of the medications which helped with both pemphigus and Hailey Hailey. Dr. Nelson and his staff are very encouraging in helping me cope with the outbreaks. His office calls periodically to check on how I'm doing. This doctor and staff truly care about the patient. If one medication doesn't work, he knows of another to try. He is a 'one of a kind' and I'm grateful to have found him and so will you.
