Philosophy of care
“I believe it’s important for physicians to relay medical information and recommendations to the patient and come to a decision on a treatment plan through shared decision making.

Also, as a family medicine provider, I really enjoy caring for mothers and babies. It's a wonderful part of our jobs. My goal is to provide women a safe place to have the birthing experience that fits their needs. I like to keep women informed of their options and provide support. "

Why Dr. Nelson went into medicine
“The field of medicine is stimulating and challenging.”

Favorite advice to give to patients
“A can of soda is 45 grams of carbohydrates which is like a meal in itself. Skip the sugary beverages!”
