Dr. Nelson is the best listener, kind and the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. She is professional, very knowledgeable and has the best patient doctor relationship skills I have ever experienced. I cannot say enough about the impact she has had on my life knowing she is there when I need to consult/verify another doctor's impressions of my healthcare issues. Thank you Ruth Nelson, MD!!! I vote you Doctor of the DECADE and then some!
