She goes above and beyond our expectations. She devoted about 90 minutes for my son just for a physical check up. She addressed not just the physical needs but also everything I asked her including his emotional and psychiatric needs. Shereferred to us other resources we can tap into that we never knew were available. Thank you so much Dr. Nelson
