Best Gastroenterologist in the World

I have been seeing Dr. Nelson for over 15 years and he has been the best. He doesn't just concern himself with my medications and treatments but he takes time to find out how my life is going since that has a lot to do with my illness. He doesn't rush the appointments and I have never had to wait too long before seeing him.

Great Gastro practice!

Have not had a follow up visit for this last procedure. The wait is a little long but take a good book to read while you wait, the wait is worth it. Dr. Nelson is a caring person and will listen forever how long you need him to.
