Dr.Nelson helped me recover from a bad skin issue. There was a wait but so worth it. People need to be more understanding as far as the wait time, if your were told you had skin cancer would you want the dr to rush your appt?

I have been having problem with a wart on my hand for almost 10 years and seen many dermatologists and tried several methods of treatment including excision. Nothing helped. Then I decided to try Dr. Nelson and after a few treatments with her, they are completely gone. She is very friendly and has no sense of entitlement that you normally see among most doctors. The staff there is just as nice as her. If you need to see a dermatologist, I highly suggest making an appointment with her.

Dr. Nelson is very professional and takes the time to explain everything to you. I had a very severe skin condition, but she took the time to figure out what it was and my skin is finally doing/looking better.

Dr.Nelson knows her stuff. She is insightful, personable, and we love her. Over the years she has helped my whole family with skin issues. I have seen other peoples comments and I am confused at their comments. It takes time to see a specialist, and Dr. Nelson always tries to see me in a timely fashion. THANK YOU Dr. Nelson!! see you soon

I've been coming to her for years and will continue so. I know sometimes there is a wait but would you want to be rushed if you were told you have skin cancer? She is a specialist guy's. She needs to think about the best plan of action. I will spread the word to anybody who needs a great dermatologist.

We have had a great experience with Dr. Nelson, my daughters skin and scalp was really broken out. It has taken time to find out what was wrong but once she did progress stated to happen. I know my daughter feels better about herself now that her skin is much better. The staff is great and always patient with us especially when we are running a little late. Thank you all for your outstanding service!

At my check-up Dr. Nelson observed a small lump under the skin on my neck. She insisted on a biopsy even though it appeared not to be a matter to be overly concerned with. The results of the biopsy revealed an aggressive cancer cell which was surgically removed. The surgeon and other doctors have told me that if not for the early detection and diligence of Dr. Nelson; I would have died within a short period of time due to the location and aggressiveness of the cancer.
