I chose Dr. Nelson because he was my Pulmonologist when I was hospitalized in October, 2017 with pneumonia, a seriously bad gallbladder and a bladder infection. He was the best on each visit to me and I appreciated his warm personality very much.

Because of Covid-19, had my visit over the phone. Dr. Nelson is very thorough and takes the time to ask questions to not just give you a blanket solution but one that will actually help the patient. I made the appointment to come up with a solution to the trouble I was having with my CPAP and was looking for his advice on using a mouthpiece.

I’m always pleased with my visits with Dr. Nelson including the last one. From their check in staff, Eddie in breathing testing, they are very professional. I would recommend Kansas Puminology and have very highly!

Dr. Nelson is excellent. I have a lung disease that he has managed in an outstanding manner. I am much healthier now than when I lived in Texas under the care of another doctor. I greatly appreciate Dr. Nelson's aggressive, proactive, comprehensive approach to managing my lungs. Again, Dr. Nelson is excellent.
