I had four children and only my last one was with Dr Nelson 16 years ago. I still tell women that he was the best OB I've ever had. He gave me whatever I needed and if you question his knowledge, just look at his education (not listed is that he was a Rhodes Scholar--if you don't know what that is, look it up. Dr. Nelson is literally brilliant) I do not understand the negative review at all, and I have NEVER heard anything but positive about him. After 16 years, I would say that he has left a lasting impression. Not everything can be perfect, but he is pretty close. BTW, if I ever had a wait, it was well worth it.

I would definitely recommend him he has knowledge and many years of experience and a good attitude !

These reviews are altered. I’ve been watching Dr. Nelson’s reviews ever since my son was born 5 years ago and there have been COUNTLESS negative reviews about him that have seemed to disappear! I will never stop trying to warn others about this man. He is belittling, rude, and controlling. He says that his motto is to help you do birth your way, but that couldn’t be further from the truth, he WILL do it HIS way and he’ll manipulate you until he gets what he wants. I have had 3 more pregnancies since him and and have never been treated the way he treated me. I’m always nervous and expect to be treated that way, but never. He seriously put my son’s life in danger in order to “put me in my place.” We are very fortunate that our son is ok. He does have some lasting health problems as a result of his birth that could’ve been prevented, but we’re very grateful he’s alive. Please don’t go to Dr. Nelson. Every woman deserves more and to be treated better and you will by going somewhere else.

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.
