Great caring doctor! My visit was very up lifting, he listened to me, explained EKG, very easy to talk to! He actually acted like he cared, I went away with a happy face! If I ever need a heart doctor he will be my Doctor! My husband was told he need to talk the a heart doctor but the one he went to was rude, uncaring, not really answering my husband conserns, or question! It was like the doctor was punching a time clock and his time was over!

I first met with Dr Nelson this December. My wife who has had health issues since her treatment for Hodgkins in the 1980's. Dr Nelson diagnosed her with severe aortic stenosis, after a previous doctor downplayed the condition. We were able to get a TAVR valve replacement done based on his recommendation, and she is doing great, he is caring and was willing to take the time to help us understand what we needed to do going forward. Thank you for being there for us..
