Verified Patient Reviews
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 when it 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.
Very professional & every clean office! Staff was kind & patient & Dr. Nelson did a great job, very confident, answered all my questions & made the best recommendations for me.
He is a great doctor.
Wonderful visit with Dr. Nelson. He took a lot of time to explain everything to me and my daughter. Very thorough, personal, and caring. I would highly recommend him.
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!
Kind, considerate, competent and highly efficient! Loved my experience with Dr. Nelson! See you next year!
There are enough alternatives in all areas of Pinellas County to warrant steering clear of this practice.

The staff was great. He was amazing and caring. Best experience I’ve had a any doctors office.
I was able to get a same-day appointment and was not a bit disappointed. Dr. Nelson was great and the staff were as well. I had to wait a little longer than I would have liked but the wait was worth it.
This was my first visit with dr. Nelson, I found him to be very professional, he explained everything he was going to do and why he was going to do it, before he did anything. His manner was very calming and I'm thankful to have found my new dermatologist!! I would refer him without hesitation.

I was so impressed with Dr. Nelson's professionalism. The whole visit was wonderful!
The doctor is confident and brusk and hurried. He is pleasant.
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 for 8:15 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!
Dr Nelson and his staff are friendly, thorough, and very efficient I highly recommend them! .

Fantastic experience. Dr. Nelson was very professional and he explained everything very clearly and put me at ease. It was the best doctor's visit I've ever had.
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 expect as 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.
Very thorough. Very professional. Very pleasant.
Dr. Nelson is always very thorough and will take as much time as you need in explaining any questions and concerns. I never feel as if he is rushing out of the room to get to another patient.
I was surprised at how quickly I saw Dr. Nelson - a few minutes before my scheduled appointment! He and his assistant were professional, pleasant, and open for questions/comments.
Excellent in all respects. He was very thorough, as well as caring. He explained everything and answered all my questions in detail. He froze several keratosis and excised a troublesome spot on my face. I was happy to make an appointment for a six-month recheck.
