Patient Reviews
Mar 20, 2017
I've been a patient for 16 years and Dr. Nelson is awesome. I have severe Graves disease which effects the eyes (among other things), she is very thorough about checking everything my eyes are doing/going through. She also performed the surgery for my double vision, correcting my vision so I could use both eyes again. The only negative aspect is the long wait in the waiting room. But she's worth it to me. I don't think I could find another as caring as Dr. Nelson.

Board Certifications
What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams. While not all specialties have board certifications, if your provider does have one they’ve taken the extra step to master their specialty and to keep up with the latest advancements in their field.
