Dr. Suzanne P Nelson has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

When we found out my daughter was sick, Dr. Nelson came highly recommended. Because of the nature of how ill my daughter was, she was able to see my daughter quickly and start ordering tests. We had no idea what was going to happen down the road for my family, it was a terrible nightmare..... but daughter is now doing very well because of Dr. Nelson. She was by our side every step of the way, she was honest and her bedside manner was comforting. I can't say enough good things about her. Thank you Dr. Nelson!
Dr. Nelson and her staff were fantastic. We were able to get a first appointment within a few days. Other doctors we called said it would be 3-4 weeks before we could get in. She took a lot of time with my son, and she was thorough in explaining both his diagnosis and next steps. Fantastic bedside manner and very down-to-earth with both child and parents. We went to a follow up appointment that was just as professional and helpful. A+ experience!
When a child has a heartburn, a doctor shouldnât just suggest to sleep on a more elevated pillow and not to eat late at night, I can get all of that info from Google. I need an actual involvement of a specialist. After more time of suffering, we had to go to another doctor, who actually ran some tests, and found H. Pylori.
Dr. Nelson was a wonderful. She was very nice and listened to everything I was saying and explained everything in a way I understood but didn't make me feel stupid. Her personality is very relaxed and she makes you feel at ease. I recommended her to my sister and niece and would recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatric gastroenterologist.
