Dr. Nelson is an excellent dermatologist! He gives you a complete and thorough skin examination. I'll be going back to him for next annual.

I had a really good visit with Dr. Nelson. I had a thorough skin examination performed, and he answered all of my questions. I will definitely return for my annual examination.

I really liked his assistants and the reception person. I had two visits and had to pay my copay prior to being seen, which i thought to be strange (perhaps patients have left without paying?). Overall he was very knowledgeable. Theoffice was clean and had tablets available. Neither time did I wait very long to be seen.

I saw Dr. Nelson once during my first visit. However, the several times I visited after were with two different women who were in their practice of medicine. I was put through multiple repeated tests even after I stated I havebeen through them before and have the test results. During my final visit, one of the female internists told me that I had deformed nails due to the nickel in my water from the shower because the fungi test came back negative and so did the patch test. Immediately, I decided that was my last appointment. After 6 months of testing with Dr. Nelson's office, I ended up seeing a rheumatologist who diagnosed me with psoriatic arthritis and nail psoriasis.

I've been to this office twice now, and have seen Dr Nelson once for a total of maybe 2 minutes. The doctor he has assisting him is very friendly and professional, but did not seem entirely confident in my condition, whichleaves me with no answers and only more questions. The time I DID spend with Dr. Nelson was of no special note. He was rushing to another patient and didn't really seem interested in my case. Not great bedside manner but not the worst I've seen. I will not be returning.

I was in & out of the office within 30 minutes, which included the removal of a cyst on the corner of my eye & diagnosing a facial skin issue I have been having. It was refreshing to not have towait over an hour to be seen, which is what usually happens at any doctors office but at the same time, I didn't feel rushed. He was straight to the point with my treatment which is working great already! I highly recommend Dr. Nelson!

Dr. Nelson accurately diagnosed a suspicious lesion on my scalp which turned out to be serious and required expedited surgery. He was thorough, highly competent and professional. He was careful to outline the treatment plan as well as reasonsfor its implementation. He and his staff were helpful in arranging more specialized surgery with a plastic surgeon. I was very pleased with his careful approach and highly recommend his services.

I got an appointment within 2 days. Wait time was about 40 minutes and I got there 15 minutes early. Then waited even more once I was put into an exam room. Barely looked at my skin or discussed what possiblycaused it but told me what I had an gave me prescription for solutions that 'might' work, but also would interfere with other prescriptions I'm taking. Not the fix I was hoping for.

I only waited so long because I was early! But otherwise I'm so happy I found this office. The doctor I saw was so nice and efficient ! She helped me understand what was going on , unlike the previous dermatologistsI had seen elsewhere. I will start my new relationship with this office and staff . Getting an allergy test on Saturday so I can know what to stay away from
