Dr Nelson is a wonder dr. I have been seeing him for many years and he is always willing to listen. He does not rush you in and out. He tries many options until he find what works best for you.

I'm a new patient of Dr. Nelson. Very pleased with care. I'm a headache sufferer and he is trying different treatments to see what will work best for me. He is obviously very experienced (I've been to other specialists over time) and he willingly spends the necessary time with me to get to the bottom of my problem. It happens he also treats my daughter for a different condition. He saw me on an urgent basis and gave me a follow up appointment without hesitation.

I have recently began to suffer from migraines and Dr Nelson walked me through a plan and made sure I understood his approach. I appreciate a physician that cares and would highly recommend him.
