Exceptional physician

My first visit with him, he identified a serious medical condition which placed me immediately in the hospital. He visited me every day, twice a day on some days.

Dr. Nelson is a very good doctor, as is his clinic nurse, Marcie. However, the support office staff is often abrupt, rude, condescending and downright hateful at times. Patients are not informed who they should refer questions to; you have to learn by making a mistake. The patient portal is sometimes not loaded with results for months, even after asking. The plusses of location and physician himself may not be worth the stress of dealing with the staff.

Dr. Nelson is great; however the front secretarys and the referral nurse are horrible. No one will ever call you back after you leave a message and the secretarys are extremely rude when you ask them about it. I have even been hung up on when I've called. This is no way to run a office and it is unfortunate because Dr. Nelson is a very good doctor.
