Dr. Nelson, and her nurse Lauren, were incredible: patient, accommodating, knowledgeable, professional and warm. They were thorough and took the time to answer all my questions. I feel lucky to have found such a great medical team. *The waittime was due to a mix-up with my forms from Zocdoc. Don't let that factor into your decision. Everyone else was seen pretty quickly!
