Patient Reviews
Mar 19, 2018
We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Nelson. Not only did he thoroughly explain the procedures to be done, he made my son feel comfortable with the process. My son's surgery went smooth, and the office was very friendly and helpful. We would use Dr. Nelson again even though we have to drive near an hour to the office, we feel that the drive is worth it in comparison to using some of our more local specialists.
