Patient Comments (2)
in Willmar, MN |
I've spent 17 years with a painful and life-changing condition that other doctors either wouldn't or couldn't figure out. Dr. Nelson looked at all of the symptoms, and provided a diagnosis and options for dealing with it. It's too early to tell for sure how this will go, but I am hopeful because I already feel somewhat better. Dr. Nelson is good at looking at the various details and at the overall picture. He explains conditions and medications thoroughly, and in an understandable way.
