    I have only attended 2 times. My experience was very good.

    March 28, 2018

    This was my first visit to Dr. Nelson, and I was very pleased, as I have been with the other 2 doctors in this group.

    March 28, 2018

    This was my first visit and the staff and doctor was awesome. I immediately came home and recommended him to some people I know that is going through the same thing.

    March 26, 2018

    Dr. Nelson and the other office staff are always pleasant and show a high level of respect and dignity. They provide a very pleasant and welcoming environment. I appreciate their care.

    March 26, 2018

    Dr. Nelson and his assistant ****** are both great. Dr. Nelson is not only a great surgeon, but you can tell he cares about you as a person. He's friendly and helpful with any questions asked. Patients know that Dr's. can't spend all day with them, but Dr. Nelson never makes you feel like he just wants you to let him finish so he can move on. ****** is always very sweet and helpful also. I also had a lady ********* that did my x-rays this visit that was very sweet and helpful. They are all a really great team. A big Thank You to each of them!
