Dr. Nelson was the cardiology physician that took care of my husband Barry at St. Alphonsus hospital earlier this month. He was so professional, knowledgeable, kind and easy to communicate with. He answered all our concerns and questions in a way we could understand. He visited my husband 3 times daily making us feel he had Barry's best interest in mind. I would not hesitate to refer anyone needing cardiac care to Dr. Nelson.

I was really disappointed. I think he failed to diagnose me when I had e coli. We even talked about the lettuce recall and the fact that it was in Idaho. I would never put my life in his hands again
