Dr. Nelson has treated my husband for several years, providing exceptional ability to treat a myriad of problems. In addition to the typical complications of prostate cancer, Dr. Nelson has proactively handled kidney problems. He is incredibly clear in his explanations, compassionate and thorough in dealing with complications, and always available to interact with other medical professionals to come up with the best outcome. He is a truly gifted physician! His medical staff, Shauna and Michelle are also impeccable. They are both extremely capable and professional, with the added gift of compassion and humor. They each bring great skill and ability to quickly, efficiently and proactively accomplish the scheduling of surgery, answering all questions thoroughly. By the time Dr. Nelson, Shauna and Michelle have taken care of all questions and details, we had incredible peace of mind. Thank you!

I had multiple forward plumbing problems that other Doctors had bee unable to resolve. I thought that since I was 78 it was just old age. I looked up Doctor Nelson & others on the Internet and picked him. I’ve seen him 4 times in the last 7 months and he has resolved all of my current forward plumbing problems. It turns out l had 3 UTI bugs that were the primary problem that another Doctor/ Test lab failed to discover. He’s the best Urologist in my life experience. Good staff too.

Dr Nelson was fantastic! He listened to my concerns and ensured the tests he ordered left no stone unturned. My hero sits at the front desk. Never in the history of my working with the front desk of doctors offices have I had the level of service I received from Fatima. She honestly went above and beyond for me as a new patient to the practice. Fatima you are the best and I appreciate you!

As a physician I can honestly say Dr Nelson and his staff were exceptional in every area of my healthcare experience. I was made to feel comfortable for what I considered an uncomfortable procedure. I was able to take medication prior to my vasectomy procedure which really helped relax me. I know other urologists don't allow for it and I think it made all the difference. The staff was great at calling me regarding my follow up lab results. I can't say enough positive things.

Have been seeing Dr Nelson For many years and he is like fine bottle of wine (better with age). He explains problems in laymans terms, so it is easy to understand. I highly recommend Dr. Nelson for your urological problems.

Dr. Nelson diagnosed and treated several kidney stones in both kidneys. The treatment was painless and extremely successful. You can't ask for more than that. And, he is a professional who is personable and easy to discuss your health issues with.
