I have a fear of going to the OBGYN. For years, I've felt like my voice was silenced. As a WOC, who deals with a history of illnesses plaguing the women in my family, I knew the way to end thecycle is to take control of my health. I read through endless reviews on Zocdoc until I found Dr Nelson. She looked me directly in the eyes with wariness and kindness during our first meeting. She spoke to me for over 15 minutes just about what I do for work, my concerns, and also recommended me see other specialists and provided their names. She answered ALL my questions. I felt like a person. I felt like I mattered. She was culturally sensitive and also willing to speak to me about my future plans when it comes to having children when I'm ready. I am so happy to have found her and now I feel safe again.

I truly can't say enough about Dr. Nelson and her entire team. I had an usually difficult IUD insertion and Dr. Nelson, her nurse Patty, and the receptionist were so kind and helpful before, during, and after the whole process. Idon't think I'll ever go to another gynecologist and feel so lucky to have found Dr. Nelson!

Dr Nelson was amazing! She took the time to explain every birth contraceptive option available to me, and even took interest in asking about my family and our recent move to Boston. I hope to be a patient of hers for a long time!

Dr. Nelson was really great. She was so friendly, genuinely cared and listened about my concerns, and made what is always an awkward/uncomfortable annual gyno appointment very comfortable. I would highly recommend.

Although going to the ob-gyn is always a bit of an awkward experience, Dr. Nelson's attentiveness and warm personality make the appointment enjoyable. From check in, to intake, and finally the exam I was treated with nothing but kindness andcompassion. It's nice to feel like an established patient after only one visit! Definitely recommend

Dr. Nelson was wonderful. I came to her with a lot of anxiety from negative experiences with my previous doctor and she was super understanding of my concerns and took the time to listen to me and answer my questions. Shewas very reassuring throughout the exam and I felt very comfortable talking to her an asking questions.

Great doctor! Gyn visits can be pretty nerve-wracking, but Dr. Nelson has a way of putting you at ease. She was kind, not at all forceful, pushy, or rude (something I've encountered with other doctors), and always explained what she wasdoing and her rationale. She takes the time to get to know you, listen to you, and ensures that you have several opportunities to ask her any questions or concerns you want to address. Office staff is very helpful and courteous, and the waiting room is just downright pleasant. I wish all my experiences going to the doctor were like this one. The only thing I would recommend is emailing new patients a map/directions to the parking lot. It's a bit tricky to find. The office is on a hill and the entrance to the parking lot is hidden. The address is 30 Washington St, but you actually have to enter the lot for 47 Washington St, go all the way to the end, where you will find a gate to the correct parking lot for 30.
