Dr Nelsen asked questions about my diet, stress, and medications. She looks at the whole person. She did medical testing appropriate for my symptoms and recommended changes in my diet, calcium supplements and exercise. After 6 weeks my symptoms were gone. I had symptoms of whole body numbness for eight months. What a relief!

I started going to Dr. Nelsen after I was diagnosed with Parkinson's almost two years ago. She immediately started me on medications that helped control my severe tremors. Through Dr. Nelsen I have learned how diet and exercise are extremely important to slow the progression of this horrible debilitating disease. She always recommends books and supplies me with current articles to help me become educated on the disease rather than just supplying me with medications. I highly recommend Dr. Nelsen

She's the very best, can't ask for better.

I highly recommend Dr. M. Nelsen. She is straight forward, no beating around the bush. She diagnosed me with what was aiding and abetting my auto-immune disease. It was explained in language I could understand by first gathering info on me: level of education, work experience, what brought me to her. Then she laid out what the problem was, what I HAD TO DO to get better, provided resources & reading materials. Now 3 months later & off of 3 RXs, continuing with her instructions, & feeling GREAT!

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. She is incredibly judgmental and likes to place blame for the condition before she even knew what the condition might be.

I love Dr. Nelsen. She has an amazing ability to provide excellent care centered toward healing. She provides detailed education in regards to diet and how it affects our immune system. If you are looking for a provider who will encourage healing and not just medication to put a bandaid on your illness, you will love Dr. Nelsen. With her support, knowledge and encouragement, she puts the healing in your hands.
