“After my accident I had surgery with another doctor plus two manipulations. I knew that there was something else wrong but my doctor would not order any other tests just had me keep coming back for a year. I finally decided to get a second opinion. Dr Nelson did another MRI and found the problem and did surgery on it. I do not have a 100% movement but I am happy with the movement that I have. So glad I decided to get a second opinion!!”

“I also had Dr. Sig Feierabend, M.D. Both surgeons are great! Their bedside manners top-notch, and you feel good once you meet with them. I wish my bone composition and wasn't so compromised so I could complete my joint replacement, only one left, but I do understand.”

“I had pain in my knee to the point I was limping around and having a lot of pain whether walking, sitting or sleeping. Dr. Nelson gave me a shot which helped somewhat but suggested Ortho Surgery if I still had soreness. I opted for the Ortho Surgery which I had at Almere Hospital in Alexandria. It went well. After surgery, I walked to my car in the parking lot. I did the exercises, visited with therapy. This was in May. I've been doing very well ever since. The other day I walked to my dock, got in my boat to get my fishing rod, and walked back to our house. My wife, Sandy, said I looked like a 30-year-old with energy and no pain. (I'm 72). Thank you, Dr. Nelson.”

“I was confused as to where to go for help and surgery. A friend told me, " I've heard good things about Heartland/DCH. " I am so happy I went to Heartland/DCH and had Dr. Nelson, a charming, caring person and explained everything so well. He made me feel so comfortable as the nurses, and all involved with my shoulder surgery. Thanks to each of you for helping people feel better.”

“I had a double knee replacement on February 19th. The Staff was kind and knowledgeable about my procedure. After needing to see Dr. Nelson regarding an issue with a stitch, he was thorough, thoughtful and was always ready to keep me informed. Thank you to all the staff for an okay time with my surgery and follow up!!”
