This doctor goes above & beyond what she’s required to do! I chose her as my new PCP since moving to the area. It was going to be almost two months to get in... they called when a cancellation arose & got me in quick. First visit she did everything needed & then some. She listens & addresses all concerns! She covers all! I love this doctor! An excellent bedside manner. Staff seems helpful as well.

I was very pleased with my first visit. The office staff was very friendly and efficient. The nurse was very thorough, friendly, kind, understanding. I felt that Dr Nelson and I could develop a good doctor/patient relationship. She reviewed my history, which is extensive, showed concern, and compassion. I liked her very much.

She has been a God-send to me. She ACTUALLY speaks with me about my weight, not just say she did in a report. She listens to the small things and addresses everything big and small. She’s very thorough and I’m grateful that she is.

Dr. Nelson is such a wonderful physician, she has treated me with so much respect, she is compassionate with my feelings, she explains things to me on a respectful manner. I appreciate how thorough she is and orders many test to out rule things. I love how she sometimes calls me herself with results. The office manager is always pleasant and the nurse, Andera is wonderful and will even pray with me when I ask her too. I couldn't ask for a better healthcare provider. I haven't felt that I was rushed and never had to wait more that 10 minutes. I higher recommend Dr. Nelson.

I went through the doctors pre-acceptance routine which included validation of insurance. Then, I waited two months for an appointment with this doctor only to be told that my insurance was not accepted. The doctor had zero compassion for the situation and refused visit. Extremely rude office staff.
