I have know Dr. Nelson for over a decade and found him to be an excellent surgeon as well as a compassionate human being.

I appreciate Dr. Nelson for staying on the cutting edge. I was suffering with menopausal symptoms, hot flashes, headaches and weight gain. I was miserable! Dr. Nelson checked my hormone levels and recommended hormone pellets to be placed. I took his advice and I have my life back! No more head aches, hot flashes and I have lost 10 pounds. I feel like I have come out of a deep fog! It has made a night and day difference in my life! None of my other doctors could help me, they just expected me to

Dr. Nelson is truly an outstanding urologist, and uses the latest information and techniques in the selection of his treatment options. He has an outstanding reputation far beyond Glendale and Phoenix and I traveled from El Paso, Texas because of this factor. My evaluation and treatment were the best possible, and far better than my local options. His surgical skills are all any patient could hope for. My recovery has been without complications, and the pain less than anticipated.

Outstanding in every way!!! I had bladder cancer, and he treated me, saving my bladder, so that I do not have to carry a bag. Many others would have just removed the bladder, especially from a man of my age.(i was 77 at the time, I'm 81 now. Just simply: Rocky is the best!

I am 71 yrs. old and I've seen a lot of doctors over the years but I've never a met a more professional and personable doctor than Dr. Nelson. When I was diagnosed with possible prostate cancer, there isn't a doctor in the country that I would have rather trusted my life with. Can I say more than that!
