in Spanaway, WA |
Dr. Nelson is amazing! She has been my OB-GYN for the past 9 years and is irreplaceable; so much so that I will drive to Gig Harbor from Spanaway just for her. Franciscan totally scored when she moved from MultiCare.

Dr Nelson performed my robotically assisted hysterectomy after I had experienced years of pain and the diagnosis of limited systemic Scleroderma, a very rare auto immune disease. She ran tests on my second visit and I had endometriosis, adenomyosis and fibroids. My best option (I have liver and blood pressure issues) was a hysterectomy. Dr. Nelson is amazing. She made sure it was what I wanted. My life is great now!!! I'm not in pain daily, 24/7 anymore!!! THANK YOU DR NELSON!!!!
