“Medicine was a natural fit for me. It allows me to be intellectually challenged and hands-on with people. I get to make a difference in people’s lives during their most valuable state – their health.”
As a primary care physician, Dr. Nelson finds the long-term relationships he builds with his patients to the most rewarding part of his job.
A newlywed, Dr. Nelson and his wife love to travel. In the last few years, he has completed a marathon, triathlon and focused on his golf and tennis games. During the last year, Dr. Nelson and a friend started a nonprofit organization – Fund the Fight. Their fundraising events raise funds for patients who cannot afford to pay for necessary healthcare treatments.
