I've been seeing Dr. Nelson for a semi-annual dermatology exam for many years. He is always very personable and efficient. The current front office staff were very nice (which is a change from my previous appointments). The only downside forme with this practice is they don't take my insurance (major carrier but cheaper plan).

Dr. Nelson is very nice and I believe competent. Compared to my last dermatologist he is faster. I'm not sure if this is good or bad but she was very slow and thorough. His charges for self-pay are high, and Iwould not mind if the services were explained to me. I saw the doctor for less than 5 minutes.

I went for a skin check as I have had some precancerous moles (so I want a thorough examine) and after going to another dermatologist (which also rated high) but barely glanced at me I decided to move on. Glad I did!

I think Dr.Nelson is a great doctor and super nice. Very personable And with a great bedside manner. The girls at the front desk on the other hand could use a course on being polite and smile. They were very shortwith me and acted put off by my questions. I'm just saying it's nice to be greeted with a smile and a hello, not just "what's the name".

The wait time was ridiculous and the staff behind the counter couldn't figure out if my insurance was accepted or not. He was friendly during the consultation, but prescribed me an acne gel which was nearly 1k for a tiny tube.They recommended I order the product via this company that is a total scam and received an F by the BBB that attempts to make it sound like the copay is the entire total when they actually bill you disgusting amounts. Lastly, when I called and tried to switch my prescription to something more affordable and asked for it to be sent to a local pharmacy the staff and nurse were extremely rude to me and not helpful whatsoever. I will never be going back to him nor would I recommend his practice.
