She is very professional, and very down to earth. She was able to answer all my questions and concerns, and spoke to me about other concerns that I might have down the road. She is not one that is in a hurry to rush you through (truly sincere) about all questions that you might have. I would recommend her to anyone that ask about my experience.

Dr. Nelson did my Gastric Sleeve 3 years ago and a hernia repair a year ago. Both went well. She did a great job. Wonderful explanations and answers questions clearly. Staff was always excellent in the office and the hospital.
