I have been a patient of Dr. Nel, and his staff for close to 9 years. A MVA in 2000 which required 9 spinal surgeries before I could even walk again left me at the end of my rope. Caring about the quality of life of his patients, Dr. Nel he is on top of all of all new treatment modalities. When a new medication went on the market several years ago I was on it the day it was available. His staff took to the phones to find a pharmacy who could fill the prescription. Dr. Nel changed my life.

Dr. Nel is a very kind, passioniate doctor!!! He treated me for years and I was always satified with the treatment plan. He explains anything you want him to to your understanding. He listens to you about your level of pain and the limits is plays in your day to day life.

Dr. Nell seems to be a highly qualified physician but is near impossible to get hold of. His medical assistant does not return calls or avoids speaking with you. I have had multiple appointments cancelled the day before my appointment by his staff. Most recently I was scheduled to have a joint injection done prior to 6/29/2016 and now I'm told it can not be done before July! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hurt.
