New Orleans |
Wonderful doctor, recommend to everyone!
Gueydan, LA |
2-hour wait in the exam room. His nurse Tanisha is rude, ineffiecent, & unprofessional. After THREE months, I had to do a medical records request to see why my son was being referred to more specialists. They would not give me results & the doctor did not return my calls. Random specialist referrals were made with no clue as to why, and I was told to call around myself, as she had done everything correctly for her part. After FOUR months, still no CT scan or MRI scheduled, as I was told would be
in Pasadena, TX |
After a long road with my son in almost getting expelled, multiple visits w/ doctors and therapist along with counseling. With only one visit to Dr. Nelson I feel like we were thoroughly cared for and that my child was seen as a patient and not a pay check. I am relieved that I actually feel that I will finally have valuable answers for the money that I spend. Thank you for making me feel like family Dr. Nelson.
