Dr. Nelson successfully removed a ganglion cyst from my thumb knuckle. Her local anesthetic was almost painless. This was after another surgeon made three unsuccessful attempts to deal with this problem. Also, his local anesthetic was extremely painful each time. Dr. Nelson was very pleasant, and took the time to explain the problem thoroughly, and to explain the remedy. She would be my first choice of cosmetic surgeon for any cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Nelson is an amazing Dr. I had breast cancer-I had a double mastectomy performed by a colleague of hers and then Dr. Nelson did my reconstruction afterwards. I am very pleased with the results, I could not have hoped for a better outcome. She was one of the last faces I saw when I went under anesthesia and one of the first when I awoke. She was very happy and that certainly put me at ease as is was a terrible ordeal to go through. She certainly made my journey easier and I cannot say enough good about her. Highly recommended!!!
I cannot say enough, how wonderful Dr. Nelson is. I shopped around and met with a couple of male Drs. but never felt comfortable enough to let use the knife on me. But, upon meeting with Dr. Nelson my fears disappeared. She educated me on the procedure, took the time to explain fully, the risks the benefits, we looked at pictures. She put me at ease immediately, her people skills are amazing! The surgery was awesome, did a new procedure which worked out so much easier for me. Not only is she a nice person, but very skilled at what she does! I had heard so many horror stories about breast augmentation, but it was great, none of the bad things happened. A friend of mine had done the same surgery and was equally pleased, I will let her know to post here too. We need to let people know where the great specialists are! And, that they are not all "unapproachable", read about your doctors. I did before, which is why I did not go with a few other choices I had.
Dr. Nelson performed 2 carpal tunnel surgeries on me, 3 mths inbetween. She was a wonderful surgeon and made you feel extremely relaxed. I was very nervous on the first one, but made feel really relaxed be her bed side manners. She was very professional and would definitely recommend her.
I feel so fortunate for my referral to Dr. Nelson for a breast reduction. I waited a long time for surgery but it was worth it. She is not only an excellent surgeon, but an innovative one who strives to achieve the best result possible. I also give high marks to her receptionist/staff Shelly who is extremely helpful and personable, both on the phone and in person.
If anyone writes a bad review of Dr. Nelson they should have their head examined! This doctor is fantastic in so many ways. She's very knowledgeable in her own field of expertise but can competently answer questions about many other health issues and concerns. There are other doctors out there who have been in the business longer than she has who have absolutely no idea what bedside manner is. They could all learn from Dr. Nelson. I had a mastectomy and breast reconstruction and the results were fantastic. She's very fussy about her work and strives for perfection. Most importantly Dr. Nelson made me feel special and that she cared deeply about what I was going through. Where doctors are concerned, she's at the top of my list!
Dr. Nelson did a great job on my breast reduction. She was very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. Always at least an hour behind schedule, because she takes as much time as you need so I guess that isn't really a fault. I would definitely recommend her!
After my Mastectomy I was very unhappy so looked for a Plastic Surgeon. I heard of Dr Nelson from 2 of her patients so thought she would be okay. The Consult went fine, she seemed knowledgeable so we booked my op. BUT the day after my operation she went on a Holiday. I had NO post op care except what the nurses could give me. Needless to say I have HAD to have 3 (THREE) debridements to get rid of the dead tissue. I had my surgery in July and am STILL having Dressing changes in NOVEMBER. Not a wonderful experience!!! I would NOT recommend her.
