Patient Comments (3)

While Dr. Nelson's bedside manner leaves a bit to be desired, he is a top-notch surgeon, one of the best in the field. For me, he repaired two torn and detached retinas; one in each eye. I couldn't be more pleased with the results, and I'm grateful for his extensive training, experience, and...more

Horrible!!! I should have listened to the first review and changed doctors. He doesn't listen to you and thinks he knows what you're seeing with your own eyes. If you tell him there is a problem but he doesn't believe you, you're on your own with your problem with no solution. I warned you!!!

He is an arrogant bully who asks questions of the patient, then never listens, or even doubts the patient's partial response. He has the compassion of a cactus. There is absolutely no way I would choose to see this man again!
