When we found out my daughter was sick, Dr. Nelson came highly recommended. Because of the nature of how ill my daughter was, she was able to see my daughter quickly and start ordering tests. We had no idea what was going to happen down the road for my family, it was a terrible nightmare..... but daughter is now doing very well because of Dr. Nelson. She was by our side every step of the way, she was honest and her bedside manner was comforting. I can't say enough good things about her. Thank you Dr. Nelson!

Dr. Nelson and her staff were fantastic. We were able to get a first appointment within a few days. Other doctors we called said it would be 3-4 weeks before we could get in. She took a lot of time with my son, and she was thorough in explaining both his diagnosis and next steps. Fantastic bedside manner and very down-to-earth with both child and parents. We went to a follow up appointment that was just as professional and helpful. A experience!

Dr. Nelson is kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, accessible - really a fantastic doctor. Her nurse and her staff are just as great. She takes great care of our 2 kids that see her and we are so happy we found her!


Dr. Nelson was a wonderful. She was very nice and listened to everything I was saying and explained everything in a way I understood but didn't make me feel stupid. Her personality is very relaxed and she makes you feel at ease. I recommended her to my sister and niece and would recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatric gastroenterologist.

The doctor was very kind to my daughter, including her in the conversation. It was easy to get an appointment to fit our busy schedule.

Dr. Nelson is great with my son who has a developmental disability. She takes time to explain things to him and listens to his sometimes "not on topic" comments. At our appointments, she listens to our concerns, explains the reasons behind her approach to the problem, and is very prompt at sharing test results. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a GI doctor for their child.

Review from Vitals.com

She was very good with explaining things to my 15 year old daughter and I think it is important to explain it for their age level. Good "bedside manner" which for our family is very important.

Review from Vitals.com

We've been to a lot of doctor's and therapist's offices lately, and I really found Dr. Nelson's office to be one of the cleanest, most cheerful places. I wish I could say that about the others, but I can't. They have hand sanitizer in the waiting room, and they have toys for the kids in the waiting room and the exam room, which is nice. The doctor and her staff are very friendly, and they all took the time to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. I really appreciate that. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nelson to friends and family.

Review from Vitals.com

My daughter was suffering from terrible stomach pain a few months ago. My pediatrician referred us to Dr. Nelson. It is usually very difficult to get an appointment with a specialist so I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to get my daughter in to Dr. Nelson the next day. Because she is not in a large medical group, Dr. Nelson is able to set her own schedule, which is very accommodating. We found Dr. Nelson to be very kind and understanding. Her staff is excellent too. Dr. Nelson prescribed a variety of tests for my daughter and then gave her medication for her problem. Within a few days of starting the medication my daughter's stomach pain had disappeared. Both Dr. Nelson and her staff are a pleasure to work with and I recommend her to anyone looking for a gastroenterologist.

Review from Vitals.com

Both of my boys have seen Dr. Nelson. She is so helpful and really concerned for my children's condition. She uses a conservative approach which I appreciate. My son loves her laid back style. Any time I have a concern she is always available to talk and discuss my questions. We have seen other Gastros in the past and we keep coming back to Dr. Nelson.

Review from Vitals.com

My daughter really liked Dr. Nelson. She was great with her and her follow up with me has been fantastic!

Review from Vitals.com

Dr. Nelson squeezed us in as a first time patient after my son was experiencing stomach pain for awhile. Her calm, pragmatic approach to medicine is refreshing. She spends time thoroughly reviewing lab work and doctors' notes. I would recommend her.

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Nelson. She has helped us through years of gastro issues and found a way to get my daughter pain free.
