Wonderful and skilled physician. I wouldn't use any other doctor.
Dr. Nelson is by far the most personable and compassionate doctor I've ever had. Incredible
Dr Nelson did my lumbar surgery. He did an excellent job. I would recommend him to all.
He has been my doctor for 8 surgeries. He is the only doctor I will let do surgery on my spine. . Best doctor ever!.
I would highly recommend Dr. Nelson he is very professional and was very Concerned about doing my Surgery. He didn't just Schedule my surgery right away. He made sure that all of my test were done before even try to repairing what another doctor had done to me. I had told Dr. Nelson in July of 2013 we are in this together. I just wanted to thank you again Dr. Nelson for try to repair me. I know that if I had Dr. Nelson do my surgery from the start in 2004 , I would be pain free today. God Bless you Dr.Nelson we need more Doctor like you.
In 2011 I had back surgery in Redding, Ca. I had no relief. I then found Dr. Nelson who had done back surgery on my brother in law and he was happy with the results. I had a very complicated back surgery done by Dr. Nelson where 4 discs needed to be removed, titanium rods implanted and screws put in place. Some doctors in Redding would not even do the surgery. It took two surgeries to complete in June and July of 2012 to get my problems resolved. I can't believe the relief of pain I've had since then. He is a very excellent dr. and I would recommend him to anyone who needs any kind of back surgery. He has a wonderful staff who are caring and competent so a complete team..
I had a degenerative disc disease and Dr. Nelson performed a fusion 6 years ago with a great result. He did an innovative laproscopic technique. Because he entered through my left side, I avoided having the major muscles of my abdomen and back cut. This greatly reduced my recovery time. He was the only one in the Sacramento area at the time doing this. He is a brillant and caring doctor who has helped many from their suffering. God bless you, Dr. Nelson.
The best doctor. I ever went to. He fixed my back .God bless him.By Eugene Brooke.
I was told he was the best, everything was fine until 2 days after surgery, 3 screws came unlose. He was no were to be found. 5 days later I had the screws replaced. I didn't see him again for 7 days, the day he signed my discharge papers. His ego is huge.
Dr. Nelson completed 5 out of my 7 back surgeries. He is the only doctor that I would recommend for someone having any kind of back surgery. He is a very caring and meticulous surgeon. He carefully reviews your case and only does the procedure he feels is necessary. All my surgeries were medically necessary and each one gave me a better quality of life. His staff is just as caring and considerate as he is. God bless Dr. Nelson.
Overall excellent experience during spinal surgery; caring, professional staff, proficient, confidence-inspiring surgeon.
Dr. Nelson has performed 4 back surgeries on me. I will undergo number 5 with him within two months. My problem resulted from a trauma, and upon looking for a qualified spine surgeon, he was my fourth opinion. I am so glad I spent the time I did looking, because when I met Dr. Nelson, I knew he met all the criteria I needed. He is not one to just do surgery. He is extremely caring, professional, and will only do what is in the best interest of the patient, with the doctor's creed of, 'first do no harm' coming first. Unfortunately, all of my surgeries were neccesary, but I would not have any one else doing them. Great doctor. As I once told him, I would give up my boyfriend of 11 years before I would give up my doctor. Fortunate is the patient who finds Dr. Nelson.
Dr. Nelson is a true proffesional and did a fantastick job on my fusion I would highly recomend him. He did not do the surgery for the sake of doing it, he evaluated me and determined it was the best course of action. He followed up after the surgery and seemed to genuinly care. He was able to fix the botched surgery that doctor montesano did.
