in Toledo ohio |
Tried over two years to convince the doctor that I had an abcess in my inner ear. Two nose surgeries and an ear tube later (which I had to push to recieve because my ears were "perfectly fine" ) according to the doctor, I wound up in the emergency room with numbness on the left side of my face. Subsequently went to another ent who did a hearing test (novel idea) and a catscan and found that I had been right all along and had a large cyst in my inner ear, need life threatening repeated surgery

I'm giving a "1" rating but honestly, the likelihood that I would ever recommend this man is never. I had surgery and was hospitalized. What should have been a 5 day stay extended to a 13 day stay because of a surgical infection and other mishaps that were physician related. Additionally, the surgery was unsuccessful.

Dr. Nelson did a wonderful job on my surgery, he is extremely skilled and talented. My incision is only a few weeks old and is healing amazingly. Dr. Nelson is good at explaining things and also a good listener. I really feel that he has my best interest at heart. Also, dealing with everyone in his office and especially Sue has been a good experience, everyone was very nice to me, and this has made my first surgical experience a good one!
I was referred to Dr Nelson after a poor experience with another local ENT Doctor. He spent a good deal of time with me educating me on my issues with my ears. He was able to squeeze me into his busy surgery schedule to minimize my pain. I highly recommend Dr Nelson.
