Patient Reviews
Jan 23, 2021
Some people are fortunate to be doing exactly what they were born to do- Dr. Nelson is a great example of this. I have two boys, and she takes great care of both of them. Couldn’t be happier with her care of them and how thoughtfully she explains things to my wife and me. Her practice has been easy to interact with and as accommodating as I could hope for.

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.
