Dr Nelson is wonderful! Kind, caring, gives clear understandable explanations. His office is run very well, I’ve never had to wait for very long. With the Covid19, they take your temp before coming into waiting room and there is adequate seating to be at least 3-6 feet apart. His staff members are cordial, kind and give good explanations of the tests they are doing. Highly recommend

Please do not go to him! I went to him for a year and my legs only got worse. I’m at a new doctor now and I will be getting the help I need. Dr Nelson never spent time to answer my questions and his staff always changes because even the nurses know he is not going to help his patents. I’m so sad I spent a year with him and payed so much money only to now have scar tissue from evlts he did on me! Please don’t go to him he will make your legs hurt more and not help you. Best of luck and please listen to this review.

Dr.Nelson AND his entire staff are top notch. At 68 I have been a many Dr. Offices. The doctors can be great, but the staff not the best. I do not go to a doctor whose staff is lacking. Dr. Nelson's staff has my 5 stars with 10 star gratitude.

I've seen Dr. Nelson for a few CV related things, about 10 visits over the past 18 months. The office may be a bit hectic sometimes, but it doesn't feel like a mill. The second he walks into the exam room, he is always engaged & interested in my concerns; he listens, explains & answers questions. I like that. And he happens to be really good at what he does. Win, win. It doesn't hurt that his staff is approachable & unfailingly kind. I highly recommend him.

I absolutely LOVED going to see Dr. Nelson and his staff. I had quite a few procedures done for my legs (many EVLTs). The staff was always super friendly; Dr. Nelson takes his time with his patients. If I ever had questions, I could count on them to get them answered. We had some billing snaffus (health insurance end); but, they very patiently worked with me to get it figured out. I highly recommend anyone who needs to get their varicose veins treated -- and for any other cardiovascular needs. I absolutely trust Dr. Nelson and his staff. I'm only sad that I've since moved away and can't continue to receive treatment there.
