We took our 9 year old to Dr. Nelson after going through many GI at Lurie Childrens. She was amazing with our daughter - very thoughtful in her approach. She has always responded quickly via the Lurie system when we had questions. I am an adult internal medicine doctor so VERY picky and she exceeded our hopes!! Highly recommend.

I took my 15 yr old daughter to see Dr. Nelson. We were very disappointed with the visit overall. As a specialist who works with children, I was expecting more from her. She spent less than 10 minutes with us and did not seem to care about finding the cause of my daughter's GI pain. She is definitely not warm and fuzzy, like she portrays on her website. If you are looking for a pediatric GI, I'd look elsewhere.

Dr. Nelson does not rush you out the door. She is very kind and listens to what you have to say. My daughter saw her the first time at 9 and is now 14. We have seen other pediatric GI's with changes in insurance plans and she is the best! She was quick to get my daughter in when she was having issues too!

Brought 10 yr old son to Dr. Nelson 2 times. The first visit Dr. Nelson asked a lot of questions. Sent us to get an x-ray and a blood test. Her assistant followed up with us that the blood test was fine, no abnormalities, and that the x-ray showed that he was constipated. The recommendation was Miralax, water, fiber. No followup recommended. 2nd visit, yrs later, no conclusions and never asked for followup!! Going to diff gastroenterologist due to still having issues that were not resolved!!

Dr. Nelson's practice is very commercial oriented. Based on our eight month experience, there was hardly compassion we noticed for the patient. For simple follow up questions over the phone, we were forced to make clinic appointments and that was not convenient at all for us. There has been no improvement and we spend more than 8 months with her
