E. Lee Nelson, MD, believes that open communication is the best approach to patient care. By partnering with his patients, Dr. Nelson can help them to understand their test results and the treatment options available. Together they can find a solution that is best for them and their health goals.
Dr. Nelson believes that patients need a neurosurgeon that is both competent and compassionate. These attributes motivate him to strive to develop innovative nonsurgical and surgical treatments.
