in Newfields, NH |
After many years with Doctor Cynthia Bear, I found it upsetting for me to find a replacement for her when she retired. My doctor, Ira Schwartz recommended Doctor Nelson. I couldn't be more pleased to find such a wonderful, caring doctor. She's the best!
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Sonja Nelson is beyond wonderful. She not only is very knowledgeable and thorough, but also a good listener who explains medical conditions expertly. To top all that, Dr. Nelson comes across as a very nice human being!
Dover, NH |
I have been a patient of Dr. Nelson for over 10 years and she delivered my son. I cannot speak more highly of her. She always makes you feel at ease, and never rushes her patients through their appointments or their labor! She truly worked with my husband and I to have the special day we envisioned for our birth, while also keeping our safety her number one priority. I cannot recommend her and Portsmouth Hospital enough.

I found Dr. Nelson was able to answer all my questions quickly and confidently. She was pleasant and listened carefully and addressed all my concerned.
in Portsmouth, NH |
I recommend Dr. Nelson highly! She performed my hysterectomy a few years back, and she was wonderful in every way. Very professional, caring, attentive and personable! Wish all doctors were more like her!
