Patient Comments (1)
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.
