Dr. Nelson is a no nonsense type of personality. Let's you know exactly what is wrong and whether or not she can fix it. I had a herniated L5 S1 discectomy done by her. The surgery was successful! I no longer have sciatic pain and no longer take pain medications. Dr. Nelson was fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Dr. Nelson for giving me my life back😌

Do NOT see Dr. Nelson. She makes horrible decisions and provides terrible care. She completes unnecessary surgeries and never follows up on them.
