Explains everything clearly and lets you ask any questions that you have and she listens. Love her!
in Blacksburg, VA |
Dr. Nelson and her entire staff were nothing short of phenomenal as we prepared for our recent surgery! From the initial consult all the way through post-op exams, they've been there to answer questions, put us at ease, and make sure that we were taken care of. We can't say enough about how fantastic working with them has been!

Dr. Nelson is beyond amazing. Her and her staff are so kind and they call you back fast when you leave a message. They answered all my questions and have just all around been wonderful. Dr. Nelson is doing a Septoplasty and Turbinate reduction this Friday. I have yet to speak to a patient of hers thats doesn't sing her praises.

I think Dr. Nelson is everything a physician should be. She listens to your concerns. She examines you and evaluates and then thoroughly discusses your problem and then explains treatment. I have been to Dr Nelson 3 times and each time I was truly confident my illness would be treated and I could get about my life.

Dr Nelson is one of the best ENT's in the NRV! We took my son in for a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy consult. She was very easy going with my son and made his exam fun for him. She went over all of the details of the surgery and explained exactly what to expect after surgery. She also worked him in same day when we had concerns a few days after surgery. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an ENT.

Dr. Nelson is very caring and has great rapport with my son. She knows how to interact with my child and help him feel comfortable during his appointment. Dr. Nelson performed surgery on my son to insert ear tubes and remove his adenoids. I will always be grateful to her for recommending it and for how much she improved my son's quality of life due to the procedure. I trust her opinion, advice and ability. She is truly an asset to her profession.

Dr. Nelson is wonderful!!! She was very easy to talk to and she is a great listener. She quickly identified the root cause of my chronic cough and other symptoms (throat closing, gasping for breath, coughing spells). Throughout the whole examination she kept assuring me of all the things that looked good. She quickly put my mind at ease and worked with me to develop a treatment plan I was comfortable with. Within 12 hrs of my apt and beginning meds I began feeling better than I had in years!!!

Dr. Nelson is very personable and smart. She adapts well to communication styles. In other words, high IQ mentally and emotionally. Quick to sense the whole person,and respond appropriately.

Our son had to have his tonsils and adenoids removed and we were very impressed with Dr. Nelson and her staff. She was able to explain what was going to happen the day of the surgery to my son and myself in a way that I understood but didn't feel talked down too. She also made my son feel at ease. Her staff was always available to answer my questions promptly.

Dr. Nelson has been a responsive, personal, professional, and kind ENT doctor for me and my wife for a couple of years. She is also an excellent communicator. She listens well, explains medical issues so we can understand them, and is REALLY genuinely friendly. As we told our PCP, the NRV is really fortunate to have a specialist like Dr. Nelson in our community.
