I was dissapointed with Dr. Nelson. I was reccomended to him by a friend, so that's why I chose him. I was originally told that he was very supportive of doing birth "your way" (it even states this on his profile), but I learned that this is not true. He was very unsupportive of my choice of natural childbirth and laughed anytime I expressed any concerns (I only had one or two, I wasn't crazy). He also made me feel like I was sick instead of pregnant. He blamed me for being so big while pregnant (I was all belly), yet I exercised everyday and ate healthy my entire pregnancy and didn't gain any excess weight, than that which was necessary. We later found out that I had a lot of fluid and the placenta was very large, as well as my baby being almost 10lbs when born. That's why I was so large in the belly! Yet, I was made to feel like I was unhealthy and fat the entire time I was pregnant. I felt very insecure when I had to visit him because I knew he wouldn't listen to anything I had to say anyways. I had to figure out any of my questions from google because I had become afraid to ask him any questions. The birth experience went fine (because I did it his way) and I am grateful for that. But I do not appreciate the way I was made to feel and my overall experience. I would reccomend him to anyone who is VERY high risk or wanting a medicated birth because as long as you are doing it his way and don't ask questions, then you will have a good experience. Also, the waiting time is ridiculous! I had to wait almost 2 hours everytime I went in and I was always early to my appointments. They never apologized for being so backed up, they just expected you to wait. I didn't feel very respected. Especially when I was running behind one day and said I would be there in 10 minutes, they said that they couldn't wait and would reschedule my apointment....even though I would've had to wait 2 hours when I got there anyways.

Dr. Nelson is awesome as a Gyn (I have never used as OB). He is caring and spends time speaking with you and discussing any problems and coming up with solutions. The practice has a patient portal where patients can communicate with their doctors and he (or his assistant) respond to emails. He is very knowledgeable and up on current research and I trust his judgment. It will be a sad day when he decides to retire!

I have to disagree a little with the other comments. Yes, he is soft spoken & explains things to you but if you question things that you are knowledgable about or question if certain tests might be beneficial, he gives a cocky laugh like you're dumb & seemed offended. Explaining why not would have been nicer. His nurse was very unhelpful & even asked why I was even there to see Dr. Nelson on a return visit when I was told to come back to discuss some scary biopsy results. Also when I asked to have my biopsy slides sent for a 2nd opinion, his nurse told me they would not do that because they all READY have the written report (done by an off-site lab & they don't even know the name of the pathologist who read it). The point of a 2nd opinion is to have the eyes of another pathologist confirm a diagnosis. To deny me of that was hideous! It took me a week to get that done on my own. She told me no one has ever asked to get a 2nd opinion on a biopsy. Really? yea right.

I started seeing Dr. Nelson when he was right out of med school in the late 80's and followed him around when he was with Dr. Hull. I am still with him; he has delivered both my boys - ages 10 and 5. Can't ask for a better OB!!!

Dr. Nelson is fabulous. He takes his time, listens to you, and has a good sense of humor too. I have been his patient for 16 years. He delivered all three of my kids. When he is called out for a delivery (that's the nature of the job!), his staff lets you know about the delay and offers options. I have never had a bad experience with him, his staff, or his associates.

Dr. Nelson is a wonderfrul doctor and his staff is wonderful as well. You may have to wait some time to get in depedning on the day. But a Doctor as good as him is worth the wait. He has delivered both my children and both experiences have been more than i could ask for.

Dr. Nelson is an excellent OB/GYN that takes the time to get to know you as a person as well as a patient. He made the birth delivery process very calm and soothing, even though he had several deliveries in one night! I highly recommend him.
