As always, Dr.Nelson was awesome. Took the time to listen to my concerns and treated me like a friend, not just a number.
He"s the best I recommend him to ever one. Thanks Dr. Nelson I feel much better already
Dr. Nelson is a wonderful physician - his staff is very supportive and responsive. I wouldn't change him for anything! Keep is up NWFP!!
Excellent. Listen well & took time with me.
Friendly receptionist and staff. Dr. Nelson is great!
I've been going to Dr. Nelson for about 15 years. He has treated me, friends and other family members. We are all pleased with his personable understanding, care, and bedside manner.
Not my first visit. But he seemed more relaxed today. More comfortable.
I have always liked Dr. Nelson, but frankly, if had to see the Dr more often I would choose another PCP. He has never seen me at the time of my appointment. Good for retirees, but not if you have to be back to work. Otherwise, nice guy.
He knew exactly what I was going through. Diagnosis was quick. Everyone is very nice and helpful in the office.
Dr Nelson is very caring. Listens and responds to questions in terms you can understand. The whole process once you get into an exam room takes a lot longer than it should. Easily 30 min of waiting which seems alot.
Love him - he is wonderful with my son who is autistic - my son just loves him??
I went for a second visit for the same problem and he ordered X-rays to determine the root of my problem. I like that he didn't minuscule my problem and is trying to figure out a solution.
Dr. Nelson is a really GOOD doctor. He listens to your concerns, is very knowledgeable, caring, and always makes good recommendations that work. My husband and I have been going to see him for many years now, and are so grateful to have a doctor whom we know we can trust. I recommend him in the strongest possible terms.
I appreciated the fact that he gave me advanced treatment due to my situation that I was leaving the country & wanted to be sure that I was well taken care of. Appreciate his concern.
Dr Nelson and his staff provide excellent service. I have been a patient for years as well as my entire family.
In and out quick.
Dr. Nelson is a very kind and caring physician. He really listens and takes the time to talk with you about your health issues. He treats you as a partner in your health care experience.
I took the day off of work to go to this appointment because I could not get a better appointment time. All of this to have the doctor take a look at me and say: let me get you some medication and set you up for a scan. He never took a look at my injury or anything.
Dr. Nelson is a First Class physician and Highly recommend.
NOT ABOUT DR. NELSON ** But ABOUT NW FAMILY PRACTICE ** The corporate owners have made 12 changes in the past 18 months. Most of which have been removed, but the latest one is NO DISCOUNT FOR PRIVATE PAY PATIENTS. No insurance means you pay full price. Period. Dr. Nelson & Dr. Alvarado are great.
Dr. Belson took his time and actually listened. Staff was very helpful and friendly!
He's a good doctor. He always takes time to listen.
Good visit. Dr. Nelson is direct and to the point but definitely willing to answer any concerns or questions.
We love Dr Nelson! He is amazing with my son!
Dr. Nelson gets right to the point and answers all concerns. He never rushes the visit.
Dr. Nelson is the only dr I've ever had who actually takes the time to listen. He seems to genuinely care about his patients.
went as well as about any doctor visit i ever had
Only comment the wait time I thought it was a little long about 20 minutes but the clinic and doctor are excellent worth the wait. Very friendly , easy to talk too, highly recommend the doctor and clinic
As always, Dr. Nelson is supportive and caring.
He was very patient. And thurrow.
I've been going to Dr Nelson for years as my GP and he and nursing staff always take good care of me.

Dr. Nelson is a very good G.P. However, if you don't have medical insurance you may want to check around.
Always professional, clean and prompt at Dr. Nelson's office. My whole family has been going to this practice for years... can't find any other place like them around here. HIGHLY recommend this great group!
The wait was under 15 minutes. He listened patiently to my symptoms. Dr.N handled my situation quickly and confidently.
Always a great experience!
Kind , understanding, a person that cares I believe
I have only had good experiences with Dr. Nelson and all of the other staff at the office.
Dr. Nelson is very attentive and patient. He's a great listener and doesn't make you feel rushed. Great doctor and a great guy!
I waited for less than 30 minutes and was sent into a room and asked routine questions from the nurse. When the doctor came in, he just asked me a few additional questions and told me he cannot make any assumptions until my blood work has arrived. The entire appointment, with blood work lasted no longer than 25-30 minutes. I have yet to receive a call about my blood work, enrollment token for Patient Portal from almost two weeks ago and even though I have yet to receive a call about anything, my local pharmacist informed me the doctor just sent a prescription. It was the pharmacist that let me know what the pills were actually for. I have been going to Northwest Family Practice for years on an as needed basis. There isn't an issue with inefficiency, but if you're looking for a hands-off office who just answers basic questions and then doesn't provide you proper follow-up, you found the right practice.
Dr. Nelson has been my PCP for 20 + years. Very personable and kind and always has an ear for my concerns. Now that I live on the island I have to drive 120 miles to see him but it's worth the trip.
I would recommend Dr Nelson and his staff. I may have talked my wife into visiting Dr Nelson. She does not go to doctors.
Dr. David Nelson is so professional,.
Dr. Nelson and staff are the best! Always pleasant and helpful. Wonderful experience.
Doctor Nelson is always professional and understands your needs. I have been going to him for over 20 years, and continue to come back!
Dr. Nelson was very friendly and personable. Comfortable to speak with and listens to what I said. He addressed my concerns right away. I would say I look forward to many more visits but I would prefer to stay away from doctors in general because of continued good health! But if I need a doctor, I would certainly return to Dr. Nelson and his staff!
took the time to explain my condition, and the treatment plan. Answered all questions I had about possible treatments and additional treatments that may be needed if condition does not improve.
It was a great experience..I the whole staff was awesome
I have been going to Dr. Nelson for many years and am very happy with the service he and his office provide.
I really like him and his approach. He was very open to our communication with our visit and talked openly about what was going on. He is highly regarded by my daughter and I.
Always top notch!
I really like Dr. Nelson. He is quick to see you and his diagnose is usually pretty quick too!
Polite and knowledgeable. Did not make me feel rushed when I had additional questions and took the time to answer them in a manner that is easily understandable.
I have been going to Dr. Nelson for several years and I really appreciate that I have never had to wait very long to see the doctor. His staff is also friendly.

Dr. Nelson has been our family doctor for many years. He has such a kind heart and truly cares about his patients. Debbie is excellent and is always helpful. Love Dr. Nelson...
Dr Nelson is very polite and through.
Have been going to Dr. Nelson for years. He is genuine and cares about his patients.
Dr. Nelson is a very kind and knowledgeable doctor. I am very pleased with him.
I was a new patient, and ZocDoc made it easier by pre-filling most of my new patient forms and even including a copy of my insurance card, most of which I had added to ZocDoc last year. I usually avoid seeing a doctor about a cold, because I've learned they examine you, accept payment, and tell you it's a virus and to go home. So I haven't had a PCP for years. But this cold was different and wasn't going away. Dr. Nelson came in and was very laid back (wearing jeans) and just chatted with me about my symptoms. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. He determined my cold had turned into a sinus and eye infection, he called in the prescriptions, and that was that. When I got to the pharmacy, the prescriptions had actually been called in! (Some doctors don't do it until later in the day). That was yesterday and I feel so much better already. I'll definitely keep Dr. Nelson as my PCP!
Dr. Nelson is very compassionate and knowledgeable!
Very happy, the place is ran very professional and all employees are friendly and effective.
The doctor listens to my needs and addresses them all quickly. Not much more you can ask for from a doctor!
I have been seeing Dr. Nelson for over 20 years. He really listens to his patients and takes his time. Also, when I have had simple illnesses like an urinary tract infection, i have just sent an email through the patient portal for a prescription and did not have to go for an office visit.
Best family care physician in the business. Old school attention, very caring, diligent followup. Staff is top notch.
Doctor Nelson is very nice and very fast. He answers all questions that you have, and always comes back into the room and tells you what prescriptions he is giving you for your illness.
As always Dr.Nelson was very thorough and attentive. I appreciate that he doesn't mind me having a list of concerns because my frazzled brain always forgets to ask him something. Debbie and Miriam were friendly and efficient as always. Love NW Family Practice. Worth the drive from our new home in Tomball.
I've been going to Dr. Nelson for many years. He always listens to me. Really listens! I would recommend him any day!
Dr. Nelson is wonderful. I have seen him as my primary for the last 10 years. He listens to your concerns and tries to help in any way possible. He is accurate in his diagnosis, and I have never had a problem with test results, picking up prescriptions, or asking for one to be called in. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Nelson is the best doctor I've ever seen, hands down!
Friendly, quick and painless.
