Dr. Nelson is an answer to prayer for our family. We were referred to him by our previous pediatrician that moved to another state. Dr. Nelson took time on our first visit to get to know us and answer questions. He is now my children's doctor as well as mine and my husbands. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. We love him very much!

Dr. Nelson is a great doctor but you always have to wait much longer than you should after your appointment time. Also, you have to follow up with the office too many times for prescriptions refills called in, contact concerning test results, etc. Very frustrating!!
