How likely are you to recommend Dr. Nelson?

Dr. Nelson is an answer to prayer for our family. We were referred to him by our previous pediatrician that moved to another state. Dr. Nelson took time on our first visit to get to know us and answer questions. He is now my children's doctor as well as mine and my husbands. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. We love him very much!
