I work with my patients as a partnership to come up the best plan for their health. I am a good listener who works with you to find the best methods to stay healthy. I feel lifestyle is the key to good health and improvement in lifestyle is the focus of my care.
For Our Medicare Patients
Effective January 1, 2021, Dr. Nelson will transition their Medicare (age 65+) practice to serve the more comprehensive patient and wellness focused Medicare Advantage plans, providing care to Medicare-eligible patients enrolled in qualified Medicare Advantage plans.

The primary emphasis of my practice is prevention of chronic disease. My focus is to teach my patients lifestyle changes in order to obtain and maintain good health. I prefer to reach for medications as a last resort. It is my firm belief that most of our chronic ailments are due to consuming too many high carbohydrate, processed foods and being inactive. I have been able to significantly help patients with weight issues and blood sugar problems. Since 2010 I have been assisting patients various approaches, including low carb, keto and carnivore diets. During that time I have been following a keto diet myself.
I love travel. I play piano and the guitar in my free time. I also enjoy being active with various forms of exercise. Additional, I enjoy my two grandsons.
