After seeing 3 doctors after cataract surgery I went back to Dr. Nelson and got complete satisfaction that never took place in two years prior to seeing him. So much wasted money with the other three and so terribly dissatisfied. Dr. Nelson was patient, concerned, listened to all my complaints and then took action. His patient manner is above the other three hands down! We now treat my issue with my complete satisfaction!
