Dr Nelson actively listens. He clearly laid out potential future decisions. The injection that I received on this visit was the most effective yet. I feel that I understand the possibilities, and limits, of future treatments.Please thank Dr Nelson for his competence and kindness.

Dr Nelson and his team is the best experience I've had in any dr's in Salem. He explains surgery and recovery in detail and takes all the time I need. The office runs like clockwork and every call returned in an hr. I'm thrilled with my recovery and the personal care taking care of my shoulder!

Appreciate very much the friendly people and the care from the receptionist, the young lady that took X-rays was very helpful and instructed in what to do, and got the X-rays done with concern to make sure they were taken correctly. Comfortable to work with. Maria was nice and cheerful in getting ready for Doctor Nelson who treated my arthritis in both knees. Doctor Nelson is absolutely great and exsplained what can be done in helping me. And did so in this vist and previous one, and what to do going forward. Thankful for him and all the people whom helped me.

The doctor and receptionists were great. The only hiccup is that somewhere a communication was missed. I did not know that I was to arrive much earlier to get x-rays. When I made appointment, the young lady told me my appointment was 1:30, but when I arrived, it turns out that they wanted me to arrive well-before 1:30 in order to get x-rays in time for 1:30 appointment. Otherwise, everyone was great and did a great job.
