Dr.Nelson had a great plan of attack for breathing through my nose. She told me what the process would be, how quick the procedure would be, and gave me a piece of mind. Great results 2 weeks after the procedure.

Dr. Nelson is friendly and accessible and HILARIOUS. She saw me twice in one week with my nosebleeds and cauterized it for me. No nosebleeds since!

Everyone at Rocky Mountain ENT was very helpful. I called in early Monday morning after a tense weekend of having hearing loss, which increased each day. The receptionist scheduled me for the very same day, and Dr Kim Nelson was able to do a small procedure to restore my hearing. She was very understanding, considerate and patient with me. Highly recommend

Dr Nelson was fantastic from beginning to end. She is very personable and detailed. I have complete confidence and trust in Dr Nelson. Her skills as a surgeon are phenomenal. We had a much better outcome after surgery then expected. I can't thank you enough Dr Nelson for all you've done. You rock.

It all started when Dr.Nelson, took care of my son who was becoming deaf before getting ear tubes. He has great hearing. Dr.Nelson is an awesome dr for special needs kids, she sees my 7 year old that has Down syndrome, she has been great with her and has been realistic with me and informs me when I have concerns about her hearing. Over all she’s a very smart and caring person takes the time to listen to you and your concerns.

A few months ago I was referred to Dr. Nelson from my primary care Dr. Long story short there was a small growth on my uvula which she had biopsied. She made the entire process so pleasant and kept me calm waiting for the results. Good news is I'm fine :-) She is great at what she does and more importantly has a fantastic sense of humor!

I am 67 years of age and have always had problems with my tonsils. Last September I made the decision to make an appointment with Dr. Nelson to get her opinion regarding a tonsillectomy at my age. She made me feel so comfortable, I knew this was the right decision for me. She was honest about what I needed to plan on for recovery time.. My surgery was October 17th. I feel like a new person. I am so happy and feel so much better! Regardless of your age, I highly recommend Dr. Nelson!
