. So grateful for his expertise and response when I was having great difficulty with a condition.
in Olathe, KS |
Dr. Nelson is very friendly and took his time with me, plus he showed me on his PC the CT scan, etc. and explained it very easily to me. I found that to be very helpful. I would recommend him for anyone in need of pulmonary services.
in Mission Ks |
Very pleasant surroundings and Dr Nelson explains everything
Lenexa, KS |
Dr. Nelson is the most intelligent and compassionate physician I've ever known. I was in the ER at 6am one morning and I requested they call him. While the ER doc balked and told me I didn't need a pulmonary doc, I insisted. They called and Dr. Nelson was by my side within an hour, ON SUNDAY MORNING, and it turns out I certainly DID need a pulmonary specialist and he probably saved my life. They had missed something in the ER. He is the BEST and you won't find many like him around!
Leawood, KS |
Dr. Nelson has a mild and caring manner about him. He understands when you are worried about something on a test and completely explains results with simple explanations that you can understand. Very dedicated.
in Saint Joseph, MO |
