Ratings for Dr. Henry S. Nelson
Dr. Nelson performed my gallbladder surgery at UT Hospital. He and all his staff that assisted at the hospital were wonderful. Dr. Nelson is very helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and has a great bedside manner and sense of humor. The surgery went excellent with no complications. His nurse, however, at his office is a different story. Both on a pre-op visit and during a post-op phone call he was rude, very unfriendly, short, and not at all helpful. Basically, he blew me and my post-op concerns off without even fully listening to my question. He really gave me that "the surgery is over and I don't care" attitude. This was a definite negative to an otherwise positive experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Nelson, but be prepared for a less than favorable experience with his office nurse.
His nurse said that she had scheduled me for a surgery and never took any information. I tried calling her several times only to leave voicemails which were NEVER returned. The day of the surgery came and I was not on the schedule. The doctor himself is fine but his nurse is just incompetent.
