Dr. Nelson is excellent. He takes the time to thoroughly explain while we are with him and I know that we can always reach him by phone. He always returns our calls and provides additional information if needed.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Nelson is charismatic as well as thorough. As an example, he is the only doctor I've ever had who takes the time to listen to pulses in your feet! He takes your concerns seriously and follows through on them. All in all, excellent.
