Specialties

Dr. John W Nelson has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Bad experiance

Have been to clinic only twice. First visit was good. Second was very bad right off the bat, they didn't know why I was there. Then after I told them they realized the referral paper had not been submitted from the first visit. Then he had the nerve to get lippy with me trying to defend the error. So basically my insurance paid for a visit that I got nothing out of, complete waste of time. Few weeks later I got referral for back injections and got the call from staff to arrange date and time. Never no mention that I had to fast before the procedure. So there I was on time and ready, only to be told I had to reschedule because I ate an orange earlier. Then he again defended his staff, He really needs to reevaluate his staff especially the rude one they hide in the back who answers phones. Some bed side manners wouldn’t hurt from him either. Lastly if you call and get voice mail which is 75% of the time, the message will say they will try get back to you in 3 days. I ended up getting another referral to another clinic. Also reported the wasted visit to my insurance company, thought they should know how he does business. They were also very disturbed by the practice, and would evaluate it more, and consider removing him from their referral list.

HORRIBLY TREATED, listen to the real reviews, and not the 5 star reviews made by him and his staff putting patients down for begging for relief from pain! Treats you like a drug head, and very rude. Overcharges and makes things up to get money! RUN AWAY

I saw Nelson several years ago, amd I waited over 3 hours for my appointment! He treated me like all I wanted was drugs, when I was asking for alternative path, non narcotic. Went to my appointment, and he was gone! Moved and didn't tell me! As for his staff obviously making posts about people breaking the rules, etc. just to make the people in severe chronic pain look bad........that should show you right there what a bad doctor and staff this joint is! I never broke ANY rules. I showed up on time. I took my medication as directed. I even asked his permission before taking ibuprofen! RUN AWAY FAST, LISTEN TO THESE REVIEWS! He, and his staff which keeps changing just like his location, treated my wife and I like all we wanted was drugs, when all I wanted was pain relief! Find a doctor who cares about his patients, and NOT HOW FAT HE CAN MAKE HIS WALLET OFF PEOPLE! RUN HARD AND FAST AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR!

I freaking love Dr. Nelson

All these bad reviews are probably from people that have broken the "rules" of pain management! Dr. Nelson is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. He got me to stop smoking because he actually cares about his patients and smoking makes back issues worse!! He is NOT a pill pushing doctor!! If you abide by the contract that you sign he helps you and your pain. It's that simple. I highly recommend Dr. Nelson!!
