What People Say About Dr. Krista Nelson, DPM
Reply
Suffered long time pain in my foot seen many doctors for it with no relief. Seen Dr. Nelson she was able to see them problem immediately, by performing a simple xray which no other doctor had ever done she identified the problem. Had surgery a few days later amazed how much better I feel and able to walk on my foot normal instead of walking on the side of my foot. Highly recommend her and her staff.

Dr.Nelson and staff were very knowledgeable and friendly and I would recommend her to anyone experiencing foot/ankle issues. My concern with the visit results from basic radiation protection. The staff stood right next to the xray tube..they should be shielded or stand a minimum of 6 ft away. I was not offered a lead shield and, when taking foot xrays, the xray tube was in direct contact with my pubis. The staff needs better radiation training and the office needs better radiation shielding.
