Dr. Nelson communicates in layman's terms the type of cancer, the options for treating it and data to support options. She listens patiently to my concerns and never gives me the impression that she needs to hurry away. ..In follow-up visits, she asks pertinent questions in an attentive manner & listens to my responses. She thoughtfully addresses my concerns. ..I have already highly recommended Dr. Nelson to others & will continue to do so.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago. I was treated as a person and not a patient from everyone I interacted with. This goes Freon receptionists all the way to doctors. I can't say engoof about Dr. Nelson. While being a true professional she treats her patients almost a friend with caring not only for the physical but the emotional state of her patients.
