Dr. Nelson was very thorough and made me feel very comfortable during my visit. A few spots were biopsied and his technique was almost painless. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

I was pleased. I left the office and went to the Pharmacy to pick up my prescriptions only to find out that one of them wasn't covered by my insurance. I called Dr. Nelson to let him know - his teamcalled the pharmacy and changed the prescription immediately. Dr. Nelson was thorough in his explanations and made sure I understood everything he was saying.

Dr. Nelson was nice and attentive. But I have a history of skin cancer and he biopsied several areas and left huge gaping holes and scars in each place. The one on my arm looked like a crater, and then whenit healed looked like a large wart. I’ve been to other dermatologists and has biopsies and even things surgically removed, and I’ve never had someone disregard the appearance or healing of incisions as much as this one. I won’t return or recommend anyone going for cancer screenings because I hate the way they all look. I would’ve preferred to come back and have them removed, rather than a hole scraped on each one just for a biopsie that just came back negative. I wasn’t even asked.

Dr's staff were very efficient and welcoming, as this was my first visit to the office. Dr was very thorough in history taking and physical examination, and surgical procedure was minor, however, handled very professionally and informative.No surprises. Expectations were laid out with when results would be forthcoming. All questions were answered to my satisfaction. Thank you, Dr Nelson and staff!

There are enough alternatives in all areas of Pinellas County to warrant steering clear of this practice.

I got to the office 15 minutes ahead as requested since I was a new patient. By the time I got settled, it was about 8:10 and there were 5 other people in the waiting room. My appointment was scheduled for8:15 and I thought 'there is no way I am going to get out of here in less than an hour'. Right at 8:15 I was called back and in less than 10 minutes, Dr. Nelson was in. The exam was thorough, painless and pretty quick. Great doctor-great staff!

Very patient. Asked if I had noticed anything of concern. Then he also asked how I was feeling over all. The doctor explained in detail what he was going to do and why as well as what sensations I might expectas he was working. I am very pleased with Dr. Nelson and his entire staff. I do drive further than I need to for the above reasons.
