    • Always excellent care. I have been bringing my children to him for 22 years. Never had a complaint. When they get sick they are seen within a few hours.

    • FYI--Only accepting Newborns!!!

Highly recommended by two moms; however, only accepting Newborns is limiting.

    • Dr. Nelson is one of the most thorough doctors I have ever met. He truly cares about his patients. My 3 children have been seeing him since their birth. You will not meet a bigger advocate for your children than Dr. Nelson.

    • I would have rated this man a zero star if I could. He has taken care of me my whole life until he did this to me. This man had lead me to believe I just had a viral stomach infection and gastritis after I was told to follow up with him from an ER visit this was not the case I had went to his office twice and had not gotten the help I needed. I had finally got help when I went to the Wayne Memorial Hospital and had tested my feces where they found out I had a bacterial infection called C Diff I had this sickness for 3 weeks and he did nothing for it this sickness could be fatal if I didnt get the help I needed thank God I went to another hospital. I could have contracted sepsis and this is a 3 and 4 chance of me living I want everyone to know this man could've killed me change your doctor immediately.

    • Dr. Nelson is a great pediatrician to our two boys. The office is always responsive when we need something. He is extremely knowledgeable and we trust his judgment. He’s also great with our kids.

    • Dr. Nelson’s assessment skills are awesome!!! I’ve been bringing my girls to him for 18 years and he has always diagnosed and treated them properly!!! I have been a nurse for 21 years, and I can tell you that he’s the best! I totally trust him to care for my children!

    • Dr.Nelson saw my kids in without an appointment the young nurse was kind enough to ask him and he agreed to see my child as an emergency even though it looked like he was done for the day, super kind doctor

    • Poor bed side manners. I saw a new person replacing another almost every visit. Office Manager rude and acts like a nurse (she's not one either). Waiting time (with an appointment) is ridiculous. Harasses you to get your child different shots that aren't required by state for school administration. Try finding a seat to sit on in his cold waiting room.

    • It is an honor to be able to have Dr. Nelson the pediatrician of my kids. He is very patient and caring and is highly knowledgeable in his field. He takes his time examining the kids and provides very clear explanations of his diagnoses to you. He answers any questions you may have. The nurses and staff are always very nice, too. I wouldn't want to take my kids anywhere else!

    • Best pediatrician in the area! I wouldn't take my kids anywhere else. His staff is amazing. My kids love everyone in that office...
