Dr. Nelson seems very sweet and smart. I can't help but think that prescribing me antibiotics for an issue I've been dealing with for over a year seemed like it was taking the easy way out... but I'm more than willing to take them if it solves my issue. We will see in 2 weeks if it worked or if I'm still experiencing the symptom that is affecting my day-to-day life.

Kind of an emergency with a nosebleed that would not quit. My PC got me in to see Dr. Nelson as a walk in. As i came in the office they ushered me right back and took care of my problem without having to go through all the paperwork first. What a relief. I was treated with incredible kindness and compassion. I would recommend Dr. Nelson and the entire staff at this office to anyone.

Everyone is kind, thoughtful and nurturing, including the reception staff, the Nurse Pam, and the follow-up scheduler. Dr. Nelson is exceptional. She is so nice, friendly, reassuring, smart and thorough. My first visit was in 2005 for laryngitis following my doctor's referral to Dr. Nelson. She diagnosed the problem, and more importantly; found a previously-unknown underlying medical condition that I never would otherwise have known about, and for which I was able to get treatment and recover. I have seen her several times since then and will always go back for all the reasons noted above. The office is clean and comfortable. I can't say enough about how wonderful everybody is.
