Verified Patient Reviews
I can’t be more happy with my visit to Dr. Nelson’s Office. He listens to my concerns, and offers the best advice and treatment options. And he never keeps me waiting long! Glad I finally found a dermatologist worth keeping!
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 for me with this practice is they don't take my insurance (major carrier but cheaper plan).
As always Dr Andrew was very nice and very thorough. I have referred him to many of my friends and they all loved him. thanks to Dr. Andrew and his staff which was also very nice.
Dr. Nelson is fantastic! He always makes you feel so comfortable and is very easy going. He is quick as well so you don't even know he is doing a procedure. I highly recommend him.
very excellent, informative, efficient
Dr.Andrew Nelson is the consummate professional. One is never in doubt that they are in good hands. He's always very busy, after all he's the Best at what he does. He also has a great personality, he's a capable conversationalist and he has discerning taste in magazines. I highly recommend the Drs. Nelson! Especially Dr. Andrew Nelson.
Dr Andrew Nelson was personable and allayed my fears about what I was concerned with.
Awesome doctor! I had been to other dermatologists before and had mixed results. So glad I found Dr. Nelson. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate.
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 I would not mind if the services were explained to me. I saw the doctor for less than 5 minutes.
Personable and competent.
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!
Office and doctor was FABULOUS!
Dr. Nelson was very professional, and the staff was personable and efficient. Also, Dr. Nelson listened and thoroughly answered my questions about potential procedures.
Very friendly, professional and thorough.
Very nice staff. The wait time was not too bad. The doctor was honest, thorough and had a great bedside manner.
He made me feel super comfortable and I felt like he didn't mind my long list of questions and concerns. He is so knowledgeable and is able to explain things in a way that I can understand and follow along easily. He's got a customer for life! Thank you!!
Professional as expected so will be establishing my care at this facility.
Excellent and thorough.
Outstanding dermatologist; very knowledgeable, professional, respectful, and efficient. Office visit is fast and complete; Dr. Nelson takes the time to listen, explain, and answer any questions. I highly recommend him.
The dermatologist and his assistant were awesome. They explained everything in a thorough manner. The receptionist, though, was a bit glum and unapproachable.
Kind, thoroughly professional, very bright.
What a pleasure!
Took his time in evaluating me and provided a solution to a medical problem...I was pleased with his professionalism.
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 short with 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".
Professional, thoughtful and considerate service. I highly recommend Dr. A. Nelson you won't be disappointed with the care you receive.
My daughter saw Dr. Nelson and he was very professional. He worked quickly and efficiently to resolve the problem she was having. I recommend their office.
He was great! Really fun to talk to and also very smart. I really enjoyed having him as a doctor and would definelty recommend him to anyone.
Would recommend seeing Dr.Nelson. Very helpful and professional. Was late due to family emergency but otherwise its definitely worth it to see him.
Appointment was timely, doctor acted in clear concise manner. Explained what was being done and why. Will have follow up appt. in 3 weeks. Satisfied with visit.
top level very excellent
It was very pleasant as usual. Dr. Nelson is very professional, effecient, and very knowledgeable. I have referred his office to many of my friends.
Excellent and personable Doctor. Made me feel at ease right away and did much more then I expected.
Excellent doctor; listens, explains everything.
He was very pleasant and personable. He was also professionable, efficient and confident with all procedures.
Dr. Andrew Nelson and his staff were very inviting, professional and knowledgable! I highly recommend this office :-)
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.
Andrew saw me right away and was very professional, I felt at ease and was made very comfortable. Was not like most appointments where you wait forever and get a robotic examine, this is the real deal. Highly Recommended.
Very knowledgeable doctor felt very comfortable with Andrew as well as the front staff
Dr Nelson explained everything clearly and professionally. He took time to answer our questions and never made us feel rushed. The clinic's atmosphere was pleasant with relaxing music in the waiting room instead of an annoying TV.
Personable. Professional. Competent. Highly recommend.
Great staff...great doctor...Explained everything very well...Office clean and easy to find...
This is the best, most caring, most attentive doctor I have ever had.
He was great! All staff I encountered was very pleasant and attentive to me, and they had a FULL office! Still the wait in waiting room and exam room was the quickest I have ever had in any doctors office! Glad I found him and thank you ZOCDOC for having their office listed!
He first profusely apologized for being ten minutes late in arriving in the treatment room, explained why and then started his examination. The examination was very thorough and he explained everything he found. He then administered the treatments required. I have been to several other dermatologists he was be far the best.
Dr. Nelson was efficient, professional and thoroughly informed me of my options. I opted for a biopsy of my nose and it was performed quickly and painlessly. A most impressive and skilled surgeon.
Parking was no problem. I had a short wait (after I completed my paperwork). Front desk staff and nurse and doctor were friendly and efficient. Dr. Nelson removed three small "suspicious" specimens after for biopsy. The nurse explained that I would hear results in a week or ten days if there was a malignancy. If I don't hear within that time, I may call them for results. I would choose Dr. Nelson next time. BTW, my primary caregiver recommended Dr. Nelson.
Dr. Nelson was great! He was friendly, knowledgable, and willing to put up with my curiosity (I'm a pre-medical student). I was treated quickly, and would definitely recommend him as a dermatologist.
I was in the office a total of 13 minutes. Had a consult and biopsy in that time and still felt like a valued patient. He and the staff were very pleasant, informative and efficient. I am a nurse and was impressed with this office and doctor!
Had several biopsies done..painless and minimum scraping.. Hopefully the results are as good.
Very professional. Quick. Painless. Would recommend to anyone.
Informative, kind, quick, reassuring!
Dr Nelson is very pleasant. He addressed all my concerns and made me feel at ease. I highly recommend him!
Exceptional ... From the staff to Dr Andrew Nelson, wouldn't want to go anywhere else.
Very professional. On time. In and out quickly which is very much appreciated.
Really nice guy. It was my first dermatology appointment, and I'm glad I picked him. He treated me like a person, not a number, and answered my many questions. I will be returning to this office for any other dermatology needs I may have. Thanks guys!
Very pleased with the staff facilitating my visit and Dr. Nelson was very thorough and skillful. His demeanor was comforting and competent.
Best dermatologist in the Tampa Bay area.
Dr. Andrew Nelson is a special man: extraordinarily educated, highly trained, experienced, and personable; and that's a combination often difficult to find. Thanks to ZocDoc, I was able to research a number of Dermatologists in my area, settling on Dr. Andrew Nelson for the reasons stated above. I was impressed by Dr. Nelson's authentic and comfortable style; and the ease of relating in a personable and professional manner. When it comes to Dermatologists, I have no need to search further. --- Gil
This was my first visit to see Dr. Nelson. His staff is wonderful, so nice, calm and friendly. Office is very organized and runs well. Everyone presents like they know what they are doing, which instills confidence in the patients.

I would highly recommend this office, I wish all of my doctors had this kind of staff working for them.

I was a patient of his father when I was younger. So happy to find Dr. Andrew Nelson! It is a relief to find a dermatologist I am have confidence in and I am comfortable with.
Visit was very helpful and informative. Explanations and suggestions were clear and I left with a better understanding of my condition.
This was my first visit & I was pleasantly surprised at how warm & welcoming the staff was here. Dr. Nelson took the time to talk with me & I really felt comfortable with him. He seems very competent, & was concerned about a few "suspicious" moles that I'm having biopsied. He expressed concern, but not at the level where I'm panicking waiting for the results. I've already booked my one year follow-up appointment - glad I found my new dermatologist!
Very happy with my visit. Pleasant and knowledgeable doctor, very fast and efficient staff. Highly recommended.
Very clean office. Fully staffed, organized and professional. Dr. Nelson had a great bedside manner. I was very comfortable and not rushed.

I really like this doctor, he couldn't be more professional and personable.
I completed the paperwork that was available online and there were no additional forms to fill out in the office. I got there 15 mins early and was taken back early. Dr. Nelson was incredibly friendly, professional, and informative. HIGHLY recommend!
Dr. Nelson is very nice and very efficient.....does not waste any time and takes care is things immediately. He is also very good about answering your questions.
Best skin docs in town.
I went in for a check-up and was amazed at how fast it was. It took me longer to fill out my paper-work than anything else. I had to get two moles removed and the entire procedure took less than two minutes and was completely painless. Definitely recommended!
Dr. Nelson was very friendly and very efficient. I was in and out in no time.
It was my first visit and I was very happy with my experience. There was not wait, the front desk staff was very pleasant, the nurse was also very nice and I thought Dr. Andrew Nelson was very thorough and professional. I have already recommended him to my husband. How nice to see such professional people.
Dr. Nelson is awesome very personable and very experienced in his field
Excellent doctor and Zoc Doc is fantasic!
Dr Nelson ROCKS!
He is outstanding
This appointment went smoothly. There was the necessary filling out of a few forms (first time patient) but a wait of only a few minutes after that was completed. The doctor was friendly and cheerful. He appeared totally competent. The facility is clean with ample parking. I'd give the experience an A.
Exceptional; listened to what I wanted, offered a "better suggestion". Easy to converse with; attention to detail.
Very well qualified physician who took plenty of time to answer any questions!
Although at first he appears VERY young, he is extremely competent and experienced. I would recommend him to friends and family!
Courteous, kind and caring as well as professional and thorough.
Very efficient office staff. Dr. Nelson was very informative and has a great bedside manner, put me at ease right away.
The visit went very well and I was pleased with the outcome.
Convenient location with easy parking,professional and friendly staff,5 minute wait, and a doctor that took his time to listen and then to explain my options. Excellent experience!!!!
Very professional and relatable to patient
So far so good! Had a thorough and congenial consultation. Staff were all great. Office very clean and modern. Wait time was nil. The Dr will be doing some ongoing treatments, so we shall see. But he seems like a knowledgeable, trustworthy guy with a very nice bedside manner
Dr. Nelson was very polite and kind.
He seems like a fine MD!
He was just like any doctor, friendly and knows his stuff. However, we only discussed the medication. No discussion on how to take daily care etc. Whatsoever. I will have to call him because I need to know that, maybe I've been doing wrong all this time? Who knows? I need to hear how he wants me to take daily care of my skin.
Great Doctor....pleased with all aspects of the visit. However, I have not seen my bill yet.
Almost no wait time, everybody very nice, and seemed to know what he was talking about, would recommend to anyone that ask
He exudes confidence and knowledge in his specialty.
My questions were answered. I felt fine about the exam and treatment and I have no complaints.
I hate to wait, but this wait was not unreasonable.
Dr. Nelson didn't waste my time. He gave me a thorough examination when I was expecting only a consultation. He was great in every way, and my hubby will be making an appointment shortly.
Dr. Nelson and his team were wonderful. Very happy with my treatment and level of service.
