Highly recommend

I have been to Dr. Nelson for MOHS surgery several times,and have always been very happy with him and his staff! Relaxed and friendly till it's surgery time then they are all business. But still don't be surprised if you still have your hand held in between, he and his staff are very compassionate.

Great Doctor and Staff!

Both my wife and I have been patients of Dr. Nelson for the past year. Each visit his staff is professional, pleasant, and always timely. Rarely is the wait more than 5 to 10 minutes in the waiting room. Once you are in an exam room again the wait is short. I wish all my doctors respected my time as Dr. Nelson does! Dr. Nelson is always detailed in his description before he does a procedure. He also always takes the time to go over what to expect going forward after the surgery. He or his staff always call the night after a procedure to check to see if everything is ok. From the moment you walk into the office to the time we leave our contacts with the staff and Dr. Nelson are wonderful! They make you feel like you are family and clearly they care about your well being. Both my wife and I strongly recommend Dr. Nelson and his staff!
