Dr. Nelson always spends the time needed with me to explain things, show me my x-rays, and have discussions with me to answer all my questions! I never feel rushed or feel like me or my issues are not important. I highly recommend him to anyone who has back/spine issues. I am glad to have met him and to have had him as my surgeon for my surgery and back issues. Very good bedside manner and makes me feel very comfortuable in asking all my questions.
