What People Say About Dr. Ronald Nelson, MD

Dr. Nelson is the best cardiologist! I’ve tried a couple other adult cardiologists after having yearly checkups since I was a kid. He is the first one who truly listens and makes things seem much more manageable. He even showed me something on my EKG that will always look a certain way due to ASD. No one had ever pointed that out to me before. Great bedside manner, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and a kind staff as well. Sometimes it’s not the easiest to call in but that happens.

Dr. Nelson should consider some of his commentary to his patient's family when speaking to them, put yourself in their position when the patient (their family member) is critical. You and your loved ones one day will go through this same process, so put ego aside and show some compassion.
