I'd love to make Dr Nelson my regular OB/GYN.

Once I figured out the administrative workings of the GW Gyn office, my visits went well. Dr. Nelson fit a lot of information in a small amount of time, but it all made sense and she was nice to talk to. She answered all of my questions (and I had a lot!). I will definitely go back!

Been a GW patients for many years. First visit with Dr. Nelson: lovely person and very competent and thorough doctor. Her assistant Tanya was just as nice and professional. One of the best experiences ever had at GW. S.
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 wait time 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!
Dr. Nelson was very nice and hospitable, and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire appointment.
I would highly recommend her, she is pleasant, easy to talk to and has excellent bedside manners. My visit to her was refreshing, pleasant and on a scale of 1-10, I would rate her a 10!!!! She listens and gives you an opportunity to ask questions and shows absolute concern for your issue.
