What People Say About Dr. Michael Nelson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.

My experience was fine. However, there is nothing wrong with my heart or veins. I am already seeing several other specialists at this time and am reluctant to shell out more money for something that isn't needed. Nothing personal. If i do need a heart dr., i will contact you. thanks.

I have had 2 appts. with Dr. Nelson and Staff so far. The Staff is friendly and proficient with their procedures. They answer all questions in a knowledgeable and friendly manner. Dr. Nelson is warm and approachable. He seems to care about you and your particular situation. He speaks professionally and has a plan to resolve your circulatory issues. The Receptionist is particularly nice and makes you feel comfortable right away.

Was referred by my pcp, am very pleased. Staff was very friendly in every step of the process; that relieves my anxieties. Dr. Nelson is great, he listens to all my concerns very attentively. He is very thorough in his examinations and his bed-side manner is very compassionate, very knowledgeable too. He even remembers our conversations bc he inquires about my family each time I visit ( I like that).

I am treated as a person not just a condition. Everyone is kind and friendly. Dr. Nelson not only answers questions, but also explains diagnoses and treatment to the patient.

Was referred to Dr. Nelson with suspected venous insufficiency. Did have it in 7 veins and had 7 procedures. Over a period of 2-3 months, my swollen and painful legs and ankles felt better and better and I am now pain free with no swelling. I was able to resume an exercise routine and have since lost a considerable amount of weight because I have normal legs again. De. Nelson is fantastic and I am very grateful to him.

Dr Nelson is fantastic- not only is he a knowledgeable and competent cardiologist, but he is a warm and friendly person with great bedside manner. He takes time to explain things in laymens terms and listens to you and answers questions. He doesn't rush. I had something occur at 1 AM and called the clinics number since it was not an emergency at the time but could have escalated to one. Dr Nelson called me in less than 2 min & helped by phone & saved unnecessary trip to ER- highly recommend him
