This was just a consult for a future procedure so not much to comment on, however everything flowed smoothly and I did not feel like I was being rushed even though the Office was busy. Dr. Nelson seems to enjoy whathe does and was very easy to talk to and receive information from.

I searched online reading comments on as many urologists as I could and the one who stuck out was his partner who turned out not to work with prostate cancer so I went with Dr. Nelson instead and I'm delighted withhow well that worked out! Good rapport, good listener, good bedside manner - I found a winner for sure!

This was my first visit to Dr Nelson. I arrived a little early with my new patient paperwork already completed. The front office personnel were pleasant and professional. I was brought back to the examination room promptly, Dr Nelson arriveshortly afterwards. He is a very friendly and professional doctor, he explaind everything in an easy to undestand way without talking down. He answered all my questions and fully explained his plan and steps I needed to follow until my next visit. Very impressed so far.

Dr Nelson was very helpful. He explained everything well. My biggest complaint is when I scheduled online the time was 2:30, then the office called and pushed it back to 3:30. I showed up at 3:15 with the new patient packetfilled out and waited until 4:45 to be seen. This makes it tough on people who have kids that are with them and needing to pick up their kids from a sitter at a certain time.

Dr. Nelson was the friendliest, most professional Dr. I have ever met! On top of that he was very informative, allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted, answered them all clearly, and was just amazing. The wait wasvery long but he apologized and he was worth the wait. The staff in his office were also great, they seemed to know every patient that walked in and used the patients name and were very friendly and professional. The medical office is also the most beautiful I have ever seen!

Dr. Nelson has been my urologist since 2004. He is down-to-earth and easy to talk to. I have had, and may still have, prostate cancer for which Dr. Nelson is constantly monitoring. He has also treated me for other ailments. Ihave no problem in recommending Dr. Nelson. He's a classy, first-rate physician.
