March 20, 2020 4:19 AM

February 6, 2020 11:28 AM

Experience good -

February 4, 2020 1:31 PM

I absolutely love this doctor and the care she gives. My only drawbacks are: 1.) It's extremely difficult to get an appointment or get messages to her. Also,, messages can get lost in translation which is why if it's an urgent matter, I stop by.2.) At times, the wait can be long because she is favored by so many her patient case load is large.

February 4, 2020 1:31 PM

Once she enters the exam room I immediately know I'm in good hands. She's very thoughtful and has excellent bedside manners. She's extremely attentive to my medical needs. I trust her.

January 28, 2020 2:11 PM

Dr. Nelson is extremely busy. She has a fantastic method of engaging her patients. I can ask questions, she will answer straightforward. I like bluntness.

January 28, 2020 2:11 PM

My experience is usually a pleasant one. Other than longer than usual wait times--everybody there seeing Dr. Nelson--I look forward to my 15 minutes of fame with Dr. Nelson. She has not forgotten her "bedside" mannerisms.

January 27, 2020 12:14 PM

I did not answer question 53 because it should not matter. I do think that my doctor (provider) does a excellent job. She excellent a what she does, and treats my health issues aggressively.

January 27, 2020 12:14 PM

Doctor Nelson is a jewel, to ever lose her would be tragic.

January 6, 2020 4:13 PM

Dr. Nelson listens to me and I appreciate her taking the time to do so.

January 6, 2020 4:13 PM

I want this Group to be in the top ten, across the board.Dr. Senora Nelson is an asset to your team and can help make the above a reality.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Nelson is a very good doctor. If it had not been for her care and all the test she had me take, I would never have found out that I was in Kidney failure. My kidneys are now back functioning at 100%. I am grateful that she takes the time out to explain everything and suggest what is needed to improve and keep my health good.

April 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Nelson is a great doctor, however the wait time to see her in comparison to the other doctors, at Southeast is terrible as you can expect at least a 1 1/2 hr wait before being seen. Dr. Nelson is very thorough, however sometimes she doesn't give the patient an option or allow the patient to make their own choice for meds.
