Dr. Nelson is wonderful! She's very knowledgeable but is also easy to talk to and has a great bedside manner - the perfect combination of confidence and compassion. The surgical scheduler I've dealt with is awful, though - takes ages to return a phone call and she's always unpleasant - but the rest of the staff is quite nice. I highly recommend Dr. Nelson.

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!

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 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!
