How likely are you to recommend Dr. Nelson?

(Select your rating)
Described my hand problem at first meeting; he evaluated it carefully and then described, in detailed, clear graphical sketches the causes, likely worsening of condition and choices for treatment. Exactly the procedure one would hope to find in thoughtful decision-making for a medical condition.
