She knows what she is doing. Very concerned about me. Takes time with me.

I have had the opportunity to visit Dr. Nelson twice in the past week. My husband was having an ear issue last week and my son had a throat issue this week. Both visits were very pleasant. Not only did I not have to wait for a significant amount of time, all the staff was very nice and helpful. Dr. Nelson was able to explain both issues to me in a way I could understand and was very relatable. I would recommend this doctor to anyone!

I have been very pleased with my care. I am currently uninsured and she was very mindful of that fact in the way she handled my treatment. It was very important to me that she listened to me and that me care was handled with respect and patience!

Dr. Nelson is the best ENT I've seen in 50+ years. She is very knowledgeable about most issues and can explain them in easy to understand ways. If she doesn't know something she will research it for you. She always presents all viable options with each situation and does not force her opinions and ideas on you. She is a great facilitator for finding the best treatment options for your personal situation. Above all else, and to me most importantly, she has a heart of compassion.
Thank you for connecting with us about this experience with our staff. We will be sure to pass this appreciation along.

Quickly ruled out vertigo. Suggested dizziness, room spinning, and nausea could be related to Lyme disease. Ordered an MRI and referred me for Balance and Vestibular Physical Training..

Dr. Nelson has been very helpful with a serious ear problem. It took a while to get better and her resolve to find a solution kept me believing we'd figure it out. She even spent a long time working with my insurance to get approval for special medication. I definitely recommend her.

I took my 10 month old daughter Brooklynn to see Doctor Kimberly Nelson because she had been suffering from chronic ear infections. I was a nervous wreck knowing my baby girl needed to undergo a procedure. Doctor Nelson was so kind, caring and compassionate, and took amazing care of my baby girl. I would recommend her to anyone!
