Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Wonderful Physician
Dr. Lillian Nelson is an amazing physician. She's very thorough and takes her time to discuss symptoms, routes of diagnostics and possible treatments. She makes you feel heard and taken care of without the anxiety and worry of a doctor possibly missing a critical piece of the puzzle. She's not only an amazing physician but she's equally wonderful to work with and for as a nurse. Her empathy, understanding and compassion set her apart from so many other physicians in this area. It is a privilege to have her not only as my primary care doctor but also my boss.

Dr. Nelson is friendly. She is thorough. She discusses your problems in detail. She sees that you understand what your problem is and that you know how to take your medicine. You see Dr. Nelson and not a PA or NP. She spends whatever time with you that is needed to solve your problem. She has a nurse that understands her job and does it right and a receptionist that is always very polite and helpful.
