Dr. Nelson has helped me with my chronic back pain. He has been very transparent and provided enough information for my wife and I to trust our decision to have surgery. We feel he is very a trustworthy, caring and extremely competent surgeon. I would definitely seem him again and recommend him to my family and close friends.
