Kelly Nelson, NP is amazing. She's always helpful. Being a type 1 diabetic I've had many Endocrinologist preach to me about something they've never lived. She has the unique insight into type 1 as she also has this issue and it shows in her care and understanding. I'm so glad I found her. I recommend this office abs Kelly Nelson, NP every chance I get, and as a home health DPT I get plenty of opportunities.
