Knowledgable, considerate, with an excellent bedside manner, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Nelson to anyone. He is one of the best in this region, can attest to this both profesionally as a former RN (retired now) and personally as his patient for the past 10+ years.

Dr Nelson is a Physician whom listens to you tell your story to the end. He then ask questions of his own as it pertains to history and genetics, potentially. He assumes nothing a ever take the shotgun approach. He works with the evidence he has and that it has been collected by the family practice doctor and comes with a diagnosis that seems to fit the information he is working from.
