I called first thing in the morning on a Monday after my foot swelled up Sunday night, and was given a appointment to come in after work that evening. Dr Nelson was extremely patient and really interested in my complaint, and performed a very thorough hands-on examination of my feet before explaining that I was having a Gouty attack. He personally took the time to help me fully understand what was causing my pain, and what I needed to do to made it resolve. He then gave me the most comfortable injection I've ever had, and a prescription that completely eliminated my pain. I went back to work on Tuesday with any pain!
I was referred to Dr Nelson by a friend at work who had taken his son to Dr Nelson and was tremendously impressed with how patient and caring he was with his son. My heel had been bothering me for months, and three other doctors told me surgery was the only treatment available. I didn't was to have surgery, and to be off my feet, off from work, and out of running for weeks. Dr Nelson's staff fit me in to their next evening appointment (so I didn't have to miss work), and I was actually seen at 7pm for a 7pm appointment! Dr Nelson personally took my history and did all the physical examination tests himself before explaining to me what my condition involved, and what my treatment options were. He said that surgery was an option, but that it should be the last option; and that 95% of people improve without it! He gave me an injection, which I never actually felt!!! and then applied a soft cast, and started me on stretches, anti-inflammatory medications, and new sneakers with better arch supports. I walked out of his office,(which is very nice), comfortably and have not had any trouble since! I'm extremely happy that I went, and couldn't be more pleased with my result. Did I mention that Dr. Nelson accepts my insurance plan, and all this cost me was a 5 dollar copay!
