Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional and took my concerns seriously. Dr. Nelson had beautiful skin herself which made me feel confident in her abilities to discuss mine.
Very detail and spends enough time with patients
This is my second visit with Dr. Nelson. She is incredibly attentive, professional and absolutely lovely. Dr. Nelson creates a comfortable and nonjudgmental place for receiving medical help and is my primary dermatologist. I highly recommend her! David
Very knowledgeable, professional and congenial. Highly recommend this Doctor.
She's a very compassionate, competent dermatologist. It's quite clear that she cares a lot about her patients. She spends adequate time explaining diagnoses and answering questions without making you feel rushed.
She is wonderful!! I'm so happy to have found her!! She is an adorable, kind, personable, caring person. She really listened to me, calmed my fears, and I was out of there in no time. I heard her assistant inform the patients in the waiting room that she was running about 20 minutes behind and apologized for the inconvenience! Great Doctor!
Great doctor! The visit was better here than any other derm I have visited. Actually listened to me and walked through many options on top of doing additional research. Would definitely recommend.
Very nice person
I was very pleased with my visit to Dr. Nelson from the front desk staff when I walked in, to Dr. nelson's assistant, and the doctor herself. Everyone in the office seemed like they really enjoyed their job. I would highly recommend Dr. Nelson.
Dr. Nelson listened carefully to all of my concerns. She recommended a steroid cream that I will be trying going forward. Office was clean and modern and all the staff were friendly.
I thought Dr. Nelson was great!!!
Very thorough. Great bedside manner. Highly recommend!
Great visit, she spent time with me to educate me on the issues I had come about.
She was very nice. Very professional. I liked her.
Dr. Nelson was great! It was my first time visiting a derm to check out a mole. It looked suspicious, so a biop was recommended. I've never done this before and had no one to confer with before the visit so needless to say I was a bit scared. But it was totally painless! Fingers crossed about the results but as for the office visit the wait time was less than 10 mins. from the appt time and the rest of the staff was efficient and helpful.
Personable and competent Docter. Very satisfied.
All the Dr.s are extremely knowledgeable and are great at explaining it to the patient.
Danielle was pleasant, listened to everything I had to say about my medical history and what I was and was not comfortable with regarding my treatment. She was so nice and so friendly. Never pushy and had wonderful advice. I look forward to working with her in the future about maintaining my skin condition. She never made me feel like a bother or a mystery she couldn't solve. She is very open minded and open to discussion. I can't say enough nice things about her.
I really enjoyed meeting with Dr. Nelson for a skin check. I'm new to the area and have had a few moles removed in the past and was happy to find Dr. Nelson as she extremely friendly and answered all of my questions while providing a thorough skin check. I've had skin checks in the past that lasted about 5 minutes, but Dr. Nelson spent some time with me, and I trust I'll be in good hands going forward.
Just came in to get an annual skin check. Dr. Nelson made me feel comfortable and explained everything as she was
Danielle was great - very knowledgeable and made me feel right at home. The visit, however, seemed quite expensive (but not as pricey as some skin clinics I've been to) given that I only got about 15 minutes of the doctor's time. Otherwise, it was excellent!
Dr. Nelson was very friendly and took care of everything very quickly.
Parking was easy. I only waited for a few minutes. And Dr. Nelson was quick and professional. Will definitely continue to see her.
Very professional Answered all questions Took her time Virtually no wait I was in and out
Very professional and glad she was able to see me so soon.
Dr Danielle was very professional as was her assistant. They listened to what I said to say and did an assessment from there. Very friendly and polite!
It was very good, I'm glad I finally went.
Very nice appointment with Dr. Nelson today. I was hesitant about going back to this office because last time I was there I was treated by another female doctor who had a poor bedside manner, and I was rushed out of the room before I even asked the questions that I had. They all only have 10 min per appointment, which is pretty bad for a doctor-patient relationship, but at least some of them stay for a couple extra minutes to kindly answer your questions. Dr. Nelson was one of them.
Friendly and professional. I called a few hours after I made my appointment to confirm everything was ok since I scheduled an earlier appointment through zocdoc and they did not honor it. The receptionist advised it was good I called because they don't always get the appointments scheduled through this app and in fact, mine did not flip through. However they added me to the schedule. Although I would recommend the provider, I am not sure I would trust zocdoc 100%.
I was in and out in less than 30 minutes. Pleasant staff, and all were professional and helpful.
She was wonderful. I will definitely be going back.
1st time visit was very good. I felt her nurse Nancy and Dr Hawkins were very professional and had very good interpersonal skills. My questions were answered, treatment was done and I was on my way. Very happy with the appt.
I was very pleased with my visit today. I am planning to keep Dr. (Nelson) Hawkins as my dermatologist. I was very comfortable with her and her staff and felt I was I good, knowledgable hands.
