Dr. Nelson is an excellent rheumatologist. She is also a kind and compassionate person. Dr Nelson has treated my sister and myself for spondylitis. She has been insightful and has helped me to improve my condition by 50%.

Dr Nelsen has been very aggressive at trying to find a treatment that will work for me as my RA is not your textbook case. Whenever I have a joint flare she gets me right in for an injection. Very concerned with my comfort.
in Missoula, MT |
No consideration for patients. No sense of urgency or caring. Very unsure of her own diagnosis.
