I recently saw Dr. Nelson in her Radford location. I worked for an otolaryngologist for 20 years and I am aware of what is involved in the diagnosis/ treatment of the malady I had. I was very impressed with Dr Nelson. She was very concerned, caring and did a very comprehensive exam. Her treatment plan was right on. I would recommend Dr. Nelson, without hesitation, to anyone having any kind of ear. nose or throat problems. I would trust Dr. Nelson doing any kind of treatment or surgical procedure needed.

Dr. Nelson is fantastic. She's very thorough, answers questions, and is extremely personable. I have been recommending Dr. Nelson to my friends who are experiencing sinus related issues for awhile now. Dr. Nelson was kind enough to take the time to explain in detail my scan and why I was experiencing so much pain, and then explain how surgery would help fix those issues. Having sinus surgery was the best healthcare decision I've made as it's made a huge difference in my quality of life. Because she handled my own sinus surgery so well, I felt comfortable having her see my four-year-old for her tonsil issues. My child's tonsillectomy went very smoothly. I'd also highly recommend her if you have a child experiencing issues that an ENT can assist with. I think it speaks volumes that my daughter was not afraid of seeing Dr. Nelson for her surgery or followup visit when she's normally anxious about doctor visits.
