How likely are you to recommend Dr. Nelson?

(Select your rating)
Dr Nelson did an excellent job of telling me exactly what would happen before and after the surgery. The surgery went exactly as he identified it and after surgery again - exactly as stated. Many Doctors these days seem to work with a patient then forget them. However, that is NOT true in Dr Nelson's case. He continued following me after the surgery and walked me through the steps of recovery, which in back surgery, is very long and tedious. He REALLY does care about his patients and their health and well being and foremost in his mind. He truly practices what he preaches. HIGHLY REOCMMENDED.
