Dr. Nelson and his surgical team are OUTSTANDING, I had inpatient surgery December of 2017 and didn't need or consume pain medication following my surgery. He is an expert in his field, in addition to being patient, thorough and kind. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for the most qualified and innovative doctor. Note: he may run a little tardy, due to delivering new life - he is worth the wait, especially when your well-being is is benefited by his mastery.

I love Dr. Nelson. He delivered my first daughter and is my OB currently for my second daughter. He is very straightforward and knowledgeable, and takes the time to listen and reassure his patients with any concerns. He is prepared each time I see him, and has shown more than once that he keeps up on current scientific literature. The only downfall, and I'm sure this is the case with any good doctor in an unpredictable field such as obstetrics, is delays in appointments.
