    Been very supportive and knowledgeable.

    Very happy with visit. Had previously seen others who never took the time to make sure we felt comfortable with their diagnosis and this place always has. Thank you.

    Great pediatric specialist. Spoke not only with us as parents but also explained things to our 4 yo. son.

    We always enjoy our visits with Dr. Nelson. He takes time to listen to our questions and concerns and addresses each one. We never feel rushed with him, and feel that he listens to us completely and with respect. We always leave his office feeling that we have a clear plan to follow. We also really like Dr. Nelson's nurse, [...], for pretty much all the same reasons, although we did not see her during this past visit.

    Experienced on Jun 10, 2019

    We were able to have our concerns addressed and Dr. Nelson developed a plan of care for us to follow that we agreed with and found satisfactory.

    I have seen several neurological drs for my son in the last few years. The other Dr's took the time to listen and didn't seem like I was wasting their time. Clint seems annoyed he had to be there. He spent maybe 20 minutes with us and proceeded to try and change my son's meds, that I have worked with another dr for over a year to fine tune. He made me feel threatened by adding a comment that he will be including this in his notes and noting on his chart. I am sorry but I will listen and follow the directions of a different Dr that has worked with my son for over a year and sees him 2 to 3 times a month, over a dr who spent less than half an hour with him. My son regularly sees 3 to 4 different drs in a month. all of these knowing the amounts and what he on. I do not appreciate Clint coming in and trying to change the meds we have fine tuned and as of right now perfected.

    This Dr. acted like he was better than all of the other drs he sees and acted like he was more important and knowledgeable in my sons care. I will NOT go back to Clint Nelson for my sons care or any other child's care. I will travel 4 hours away to see a different dr.

    Dr. Nelson thorough & thoughtful. He explained things to us in a way that made us comfortable w/his diagnosis.

    It was extremely efficient. Almost no waiting time.

    Dr. Nelson was extremely nice and very personable with my son. Took my concerns very seriously and validated me when others Doctors didn't.

    I got the help I was seeking! He helped to make sure everything was ok with my young child.

    Dr. Nelson is a very competent doctor. Thankful we now have access to him in Southern Utah.

    Dr Nielson is great. He always listens to us and discusses our concerns. He is always kind and caring with my daughter.

    Experienced on Feb 25, 2019

    I felt unheard, belittled, brushed off, & rushed out the door while not being taken seriously. I drove 2 1/2 hours for this appt and made an appt w/another provider on the drive home. Very dissatisfied.

    Experienced on Jul 04, 2018

    We just love Dr. Nielsen! He always takes the time to talk to us and listen to our concerns. With as many patients as he must see, he always seems to know exactly who our son is and his history (good job reviewing charts before the appointment!) It makes us feel secure in knowing we aren't just another person in his office. He is honest and very informative and is a very genuine and caring doctor.

    Experienced on Apr 19, 2018

    He took quite a lot of time with us - very impressed by that!
