Dr Nelson is either uncaring, or has age related memory loss. He diagnosed me with a serious immune deficiency, after telling me in office to lose weight and get off my sleeping medication. When all my labs came back, he called and said I had a very serious immune disorder. I consulted with him recently, and he said to come back in four weeks and send him all records and pathology reports. He acted as if he had never seen me. Asked all the same questions; ordered all the same tests. ??

I felt that Dr. Nelson really took the time to explain my complicated illness and took the necessary steps to further get to the bottom of my issues. After reading some reviews on here I was a bit anxious but I didn't need the bedside manner, I needed answers and I got them. So if this helps someone else from the anxiety I felt it is worth it. Also the nurses and all the staff were very helpful and kind.

has seen my wife through 3 leukemia experiences

On my first visit he told me I had a rare immunological disorder that would require extensive testing. I was so glad to finally find answers! On the second visit he was supposed to tell me the treatment plan. Instead, on the second visit he actually said that everyone is gonna die of something and he completely blew me off. I cried in the parking lot

I felt dismissed upon his entering the exam room, but he made sure I knew how good he was... 6 times.
