Other areas of expertise include jet lag, dehydration and your body’s response to thermal stress, which can influence your decision making ability.

- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I went into the milan ER where this doctor was on staff. My 22 yr old granddaughter took me. I am a LPN before I retired. I lost a cap off a tooth the morning before ... before going to bed I noticed my jaw a bit puffy so I took some ibuprofen and an ice pack. Waking up at 1 :30 am (only about 5 hrs later) I had pain in my jaw and left side of face. I got up to look at the mirror to find my face was swollen from nose to left side. I immediately called my granddaughter to take me to ER ... Dr. Nelson & I use the Dr. from respect point only would not listen to me or granddaughter of what the events leading up to how this happened, but began to criticize about my tooth & kept interrupting anytime me or my granddaughter tried to explain ... Gave me an antibiotic script that I can not take ... and continued the criticism. Needless to day the expensive trip was worthless ... at 3am in morning ... was given 1 pain pill & no antibiotics while in ER. If the 5 reviews are all that are listed then they must erase the bad reviews!! I would not let this doctor ... scratch that ... this physician be my vet!!
