He knew exactly what I had and explained that the medicine I had been using was not going to work on my rash. He explained what each of the meds I brought in were used for.

January 30, 2017

I liked receiving his summary via mychart.

January 30, 2017

Tyler was excellent gave me great advise

January 12, 2017

I have had life-long dermatological issues and have been a patient of multiple dermatologists. Tyler Nelson is better than any of the dermatologists that I have seen previously and would recommend him highly to anyone.

January 04, 2017

I've been looking for years for a doctor that not only understand my needs plus previous health problems combining his knowledge and experience, to give me the correct medications and even pharmaceutic generic brands. Tyler Nelson is for me one in an million that works to get to the target of the disease. In my case was my skin problems for years with no hope to find a cure.

December 25, 2016

One of my medications was too expensive, it wasn't covered by my insurance. I called the office and another recommendations was quickly made. The person on the phone even spelled it out for me so I could be sure I understood the change. Very kind.

December 23, 2016

I was recommended to Dr Nelson

December 22, 2016


December 19, 2016

Tyler is amazing. I have seen him myself and brought my son and to see him because he so awesome .

December 09, 2016

I was very satisfied with the procedure and care

December 03, 2016

Dr. Tyler Nelson was friendly and nice, and he explained to me that the issue for which I went to see him was not something of concern. He explained some of the signs I should look for, and I was given a printout of information about skin cancer and what I can do to protect myself from it.

December 02, 2016

Tyler Nelson is exactly how a care provider should be. He takes the time to talk to you and is friendly and consciousness .Heather really cares about his patients. My son loves coming to see him for his acne. Now that's really saying something.

November 25, 2016

It was a great visit.

November 21, 2016

The only frustration I had was that a PA couldn't remove the cyst from my skin right there on the spot. He stated outright that he would need to refer it to an MD, but with such a busy schedule as mine, I was so frustrated to have to re-schedule to come back. Had I known he wasn't an MD, I may not have gone to him. However, he was very thorough and very nice.

November 21, 2016

Tyler always takes the time to listen and address my concerns.

November 07, 2016

Dr. Nelson has the ability to put one at ease and make them feel comfortable. I wish all my providers had the ability to listen and provide care as does Dr. Tyler Nelson.

October 28, 2016

First time with this particular doctor and couldn't have been more satisfied.

October 25, 2016

I always feel so well taken care of. All my concerns are addressed. Tyler and his team create a feeling of safety and respect. I absolutely trust Tylers care

October 20, 2016

I really appreciate how kind and professional Tyler is.

October 19, 2016

Nelson was very considerate of my concerns. He also took the time to explain to me what to expect with my insurance. His attention to details that I hadn't even thought to ask for clarification on yet was above and beyond my expectations.

October 12, 2016

Dr. Nelson had a very good recollection of me and my condition.

October 08, 2016

there is no one as good as Tyler. he is the best provider ever! will go to him till I die.

October 07, 2016

Tyler was great about explain things to me. I have a lot of confidence in him. he is very thorough in telling me what he is doing. He has a great personality and always seems very upbeat and happy. He wants to make sure I understand everything he is doing.

October 02, 2016


October 01, 2016

Tyler was very nice, answered our questions and printed information for us

September 19, 2016

Tyler is professional, skilled and personable

September 18, 2016

Tyler is great. Very pleasant, very thorough.

September 11, 2016

Dr. Nelson was amazing! I will definitely be visiting him with any concerns regarding my dermatology needs in the future. Not only that, he cured a plantar wart on my foot in the past. It was a vigorous 9 month process. He is so knowledgeable and nice and friendly. He made me feel like I'm doing the right things for my skin especially staying out of the sun and he gave me advice about some small things that I wanted fixed with a cosmetician. I love that he shares his medical knowledge too. He told me the scientific terms but also described them to me in layman's terms. Great doctor! Super friendly and I will recommend him to all my friends and family!

September 10, 2016

First visit with this specialist, very nice doctor. Took time to listen to me and explain and answer my list is questions.

August 27, 2016

Tyler Nelson took good care of me and seemedconcerned for my welfare.

August 26, 2016

Tyler was very friendly and made my son feel comfortable.

August 24, 2016

Tyler really is the best. He explains everything clearly and makes you part of the treatment process.

August 24, 2016

Interesting conversation during surgery took my mind off getting sliced and sewn. The step-by-step was explained in progress.

August 12, 2016

he was very nice and personable but I feel I was extremely rushed and he seemed like he was in a hurry to get me in and out and I don't feel I got a very thorough evaluation.

August 11, 2016

Doctor was excellent but I would have liked more information about my condition instead of so much chatting. He definitely seemed knowledgeable but seemed in a hurry. I did not feel like I was given enough information about my actual type of skin cancers

August 06, 2016

Great Physician

August 05, 2016

I really liked Tyler! He's got an excellent bedside manner, seems very informed and well-trained. I felt very confident in his care and I would definitely recommend him to others.

August 02, 2016

I'd always recommend Tyler to anyone. Others at the clinic had directed me to him as an outstanding clinician. He explained everything in a friendly, easy to understand manner.

August 01, 2016

We loved Tyler!

July 31, 2016

Tyler Nelson is amazing and so kind!!! I would recommend him to everybody and have already. thank you Tyler for your recommendations and care!

July 31, 2016

Tyler Nelson, PA, provided excellent diagnoses, information, and counsel.

July 31, 2016

Tyler does a wonderful job. My daughter had seen him prior to my seeing him and she had a good experience.

July 31, 2016


July 27, 2016

Some of my questions were about something embarrassing to me and the doctor shrugged it off and didn't seem bothered about having to see my issue. Gown was a little small so I had to take it off which made it more embarrassing but I appreciate it not being as big a deal as I made it out to be.

July 22, 2016

I felt very very rushed. The Dr. talked so fast and made me feel like he couldn't wait to get out of the room! I felt so rushed that I couldn't even think of all the questions I had. I will not be returning to this Dermatologist for my yearly check up.

July 18, 2016

Tyler is great. it was worth the wait. he is very good at what he does. feel very confident with him

July 18, 2016

Continuing care with new processes and procedure were explained with appropriate appointment recommended.

July 18, 2016

After I described the situation the PA took a scraping and I had a diagnosis within 5 minutes, my only concern, was his lack of questions regarding current meds. I suspect the system alerted of any potential conflicts.

July 16, 2016

Dr Nelson is a great doctor.

July 13, 2016

He was in too big of a hurry, perhaps because he was behind.

July 10, 2016

Provider talked down to me. And seemed to not understand or take into account the patients feelings when enter acting with them. Futhermore mad assumptions about the patient that where wholly untrue.

July 09, 2016

would have liked an explanation as to why the med he prescribed was better than others. felt like he was just doing it to get a kick back from the drug rep

July 05, 2016

Very good

June 29, 2016

Very good experience. I made my husband an appointment as soon as I got home. I appreciate the kindness and professionalism.

June 26, 2016

Tyler went above and beyond, noticing and providing treatment for issues I didn't know I had.

June 24, 2016

I was really pleased that Dr. Nelson was willing to fit me in and encouraged me in the future to call about same-day cyst injections, that he would be happy to fit me in. Skin problems really make you lose self-confidence, so knowing someone is on your side and willing to see you right away is very encouraging.

June 17, 2016


June 10, 2016

Dr. Nelson is awesome!

June 08, 2016

I will not refer the Westridge Clinic to anyone.

June 07, 2016

Tyler uses plain English (.g., "that's nothing to worry about"). At the end of the day, that's all you need to hear.

June 03, 2016

I love UT dermatology. Tyler Nelson is wonderful!!!

May 29, 2016

Tyler Nelson has been excellent in treating me -

May 25, 2016

first time seeing this provider and he was great. My daughter was at ease and he was great about explaining what he was doing.

May 22, 2016

only looked at 50% of my body for skin cancer.

May 20, 2016

already recommend him to my boss

May 20, 2016

I was told it would be a 30-minute office procedure, so I had planned to go back to work. I was never told, at any point in this procedure (until I was about to undergo the procedure) that I should have scheduled the day off afterwards. I hadn't planned the proper coverage at work to be off the majority of the day, and it disrupted a lot of people.

May 17, 2016

very helpful

May 13, 2016

Tyler is the best. He is so thorough and friendly. He doesn't make you feel rushed and takes his time explaining things to you and answering questions.

May 10, 2016

Tyler Nelson was fantastic. Very friendly, thorough, made me feel like I was his number one priority that day. Highly recommend this PA for dermatology.

May 01, 2016

I received much better care from this clinic and Tyler than I did a different Dermatologist I initially saw for the same problem. The other Dermatologist didn't prepare me for the drying affects of Accutane. Tyler did. He gave me lots of over the counter recommendations for handling the dry skin, lips, eyes Accutane often causes. He was fantastic.

April 30, 2016

This was one of the worst experiences with a provider I have ever had. After i was walked in on naked. I was told to use deodorant for a issue I was having o the skin of my underarm. My scalp was never really even looked at and i certaintly wasnt touched to evaluate any skin condition. I was rudely told to practice better hygiene even though I shower twice a day and have very clean skin. Doctor did not even listen to my concerns. I am an adult who works in the health care field and even though I tried over and over to tell the provider i know my body and know what most likely was wrong. instead of treating me I was walked in naked, told I was fat and instructed to use laser hair removal for treatment. I suppose the provder is going to pay the thouands to get that done. I will not refer nor return to this provider and had to use urgent care a few days later to get actual treatment.

April 28, 2016

Tyler and his staff are so nice to me and got me in for an app same day! He is very caring and made sure I got the care and reassurance I needed. It's so nice to have such awesome people to see!

April 24, 2016

Tyler Nelson has taken excellent care of our son for years!

April 24, 2016

April 12, 2016


April 11, 2016

Will absolutely recommend this provider to others. Please see previous comments.

April 09, 2016

He was amazing! I went into the appt feeling like we should rush through it because I was late. But he took the nessessary time needed to be thurough and have a friendly bedside manner, and gave me options of different treatment options.

April 05, 2016

The Dr. is amazing! He is very comforting and made me laugh when I was nervous

March 22, 2016

I love Dr Nelson! Ive reccomended him to family (my father and grandma both see him now) and cannot say enough good things about him. He truly cares that you are getting the best care and always asks what more he can do for you instead of making you feel like you are being rushed in and out. He is amazing!

March 20, 2016

Tyler is such an excellent doctor. He always addresses every concern I have, and is so knowledgeable. He is the best dermatologist I've ever been to!

March 19, 2016

It was awesome working with the doctor.

March 17, 2016

He was efficient, what he prescribed worked like a miracle.

March 16, 2016

I have seen Tyler several times. He always takes time with me and listens to my concerns. He explains everything he is doing and is professional and personable. I have recommended him to several friends.

March 14, 2016

Tyler helped me in effectively but thorough, he didn't waste my time and was positive about helping me fix my skin problems. He was personable and I felt very taken care of.

March 12, 2016

Very good and friendly doctor taylor is the best

March 09, 2016

Dr. Nelson is an outstanding doctor. The best

March 07, 2016

Tyler always has a smile on his face. He makes me feel comfortable, asks if I have any questions or concerns. Takes the time to listen to me. Explains things very thoroughly. I would recommend him to anyway that needs a Dermatologist.

March 01, 2016

I very much enjoy his professionalism and time spent in patient teaching. I will be happy to recommend Tyler to my friends who may need dermatology services

February 26, 2016

I have never been to a healthcare professional that has the knowledge and bedside manner Tyler Nelson does. I will keep coming back.

February 15, 2016

I tell all my co-workers to go there. Highly recommended.

February 10, 2016

Dr. Nelson eliminated my long-term wart issues on my hand and foot in one month, where my former Dermatologist made no progress in six months. He was concerned about finding solutions rather than collecting continuing payments.

February 09, 2016

It was really nice the doctor did not talk down to me and he was able to adjust his verbiage to meet my understanding and background in both the medical field and in education

February 08, 2016

Dr. Nelson is great!

February 06, 2016

Best Dr. I've seen in a long time! Already giving referrals.

February 05, 2016

I appreciated all of the information we received, but a felt a little bit overwhelmed by the amount of information.

February 05, 2016

I really liked the doctor!

January 24, 2016

very very good a complet gentlemen

January 23, 2016

Very good

January 15, 2016

Very good visit

January 14, 2016

Tyler is an outstanding PA. He has an excellent knowledge in dermatology and I felt very comfortable with his course of action for my situation. He is very confident, understanding, sensitive and showed a genuine concern for me. I have recommend him to many family members and friends in the past and will continue to do so.

January 12, 2016

I already did recommend a friend and she has an appointment this week with dr. Sorensen.

January 11, 2016

Tyler Nelson took time to explain and answer all questions He is very professional and friendly

January 09, 2016

Excellent experience with Tyler Nelson. Most helpful and informative dermatological advice I've ever received.

January 07, 2016

Love Tyler Nelson! He always does a thorough exam and is informative about different options I have for my prescriptions or over the counter options.

January 06, 2016

Tyler is AMAZING.

December 14, 2015

My concern related to treatment is that I believe my skin condition was cleared up. The doctor froze one spot "just in case" but it seems that it was simply done so I could be billed for a "procedure". I didn't think it needed the freezing, but I wasn't really consulted on that. I would have rather not done the freeze if I would have understood that it would have added a large expense to the visit.

December 07, 2015

I have had such a good experience with this provider that I have sent both my girls here

December 03, 2015

We loved Tyler. He took the time to establish trust, explained things well, & worked with our concerns. He was fantastic in every way. We wish all medical personnel were as skilled as he was at dealing with patients.

November 30, 2015

I love Tyler Nelson--recommend him all the time.

November 24, 2015

Tyler was so friendly, kind, optimistic, and encouraging. It was a great experience. Have already told people how much I have liked the both U of U facilities I've been to and the care I've received. I am so impressed!

November 11, 2015

Provider was very friendly, professional and to the point.

November 10, 2015

I am thinking of applying to PA school and Tyler took the time to talk to me about it. I really appreciated his input.

November 09, 2015

He was very informational and didn't pressure me into anything. Took things at my own pace. Friendly, nice and very confident. Also made sure I had a follow up and time to think over options!

November 08, 2015

Very good experience

November 08, 2015

Tyler Nelson is top notch. He obviously cares about his work, his patients and is very professional.

November 02, 2015

The physician was very knowledgable, personable, and helpful. He showed care for my concern and I was extremely impressed with his bedside manner. Overall one of the best visits to a health facility. He was prompt, and thorough.

October 29, 2015

I have recommended Tyler Nelson to many friends and family. This last visit he showed me pictures of subjects whom had the same problem as myself on an education web program.

October 23, 2015

Didn't identify himself as a PA, which i found to be misleading as I had specifically asked for an attending. I will make sure that my colleagues, friends, and family know how terrible my experience was at the U. Profoundly disturbing at the lengths the U will go to mislead patients.

October 16, 2015

Tyler is wonderful! I have already recommended him to my family members. He is friendly, not intimidating, and shows genuine care for his patients.

October 08, 2015

He was so helpful and was very concerned about helping me. He even remembered I was there with other family a week earlier and asked how they were doing. I am so impressed with Dr. Nelson.

September 22, 2015

Tyler is very professional, efficient and personable

September 21, 2015

Tyler was kind and professional. always goes above and beyond to explain diagnosis and treatment plan.

August 26, 2015

Tyler Nelson is a wonderful doctor. He has always made us feel like we are his first concern. He makes sure we understand and feel comfortable with the decisions we all made together. I would recommend him to anyone. He is superb, and I can't say enough nice things about him.

August 24, 2015

Tyler Nieslon Dermatology PA was very helpful in making me feel comfortable about my concerns in the treatment plan.

August 17, 2015

Overall, a very good experience, at first nervous, but all went fine with no pain during or after.

June 26, 2015

May 29, 2015

PA was very helpful about our sons medical issues. He gave options for our son and explained everything to us regarding medications and possible future procedures. Thank you Tyler for all you knowledge and helping us.

May 25, 2015

I really like my Dr. and he has worked me well to get my dermititus taken care of,

May 22, 2015

My daughter has a sever skin Condition and is very insecure. Dr Nelson is always so kind and talks to her instead of over her. He makes her feel comfortable and includes her in the plans. He makes sure she understands and shows he is in this with her and will get it fixed. I loved that he knew who she was and what was going on when he walked in. He is great!!!

May 19, 2015

I have all ready referred my husband to see Tyler Nelson, because I felt confident that he would be able to help my husband with his skin condition

April 21, 2015

He wasn't as thorough as my dermatologists have been in the past. He didn't look at the front of my thighs or my stomach.

April 19, 2015

Dr. Nelson is very easy to talk to and pays great attention to his paitients. This has been my family's experience with him over many years.

March 27, 2015

Great doctor

March 23, 2015

I had a minor complication and they want out of there way to take care of me

March 22, 2015

He did not really examine my skin, just took a brief look and diagnosed and recommended medication. I would have liked him to have done an exam and then helped me determine my next step and not just assume I would not do the peel until after trying the meds.

March 16, 2015

Dr. Nelson is always friendly, informative, and helpful.

March 13, 2015

He's very kind and personable but most importantly he is good at what he does. I prefer P.A.'s to doctors.

March 03, 2015

He was timely, very professional, educated, communicated well with the patient and most importantly he was genuine in his concern and his practice. I appreciated all of these things from a personal and professional perspective, and have already recommended Tyler to friends. Words can't express how impressed I am with the entire experience.

February 25, 2015

A wonderfully caring Dr. Who makes everything easier.

February 19, 2015

He is terrific and very confidence-inspiring! Would recommend him to anyone!

February 04, 2015

I'm so glad I came in. I had one concern in mind, but Tyler Nelson found a more serious problem (BCC).

January 26, 2015


January 20, 2015

Great care provider. Very nice and understanding.

November 24, 2014

Dr. Nelson seemed genuinely concerned about finding more places on my face to biopsy. He tried to be careful and caring.

November 24, 2014

Tyler Nelson is one of the best doctors I have seen. I have had such a great experience at your office. I use d to go to South Valley Dermatology because they are close to my house, but I have not had good experiences with them. The longer drive is definitely worth it to visit this clinic.

November 23, 2014

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Tyler

November 16, 2014

He was very thorough and patient. I had extra questions about my kids, and he did not make me feel like it was an inconvenience. Would definitely recommend him, and likely will to my step-daughter.

November 16, 2014

when i made the appt. the receptionist said dr. nelson was very nice. when the assistant took me back to the room she asked if this was the 1st time i was seeing dr. nelson. i answered yes and she said that he's really good and she thought i would like him. i did.

November 12, 2014

August 29, 2014

nice visit. I had scheduled going to another doctor after this appt to get another opinion, but after visiting with doc Nelson I felt confidence in his plan of action and decided to try it out for a few months, so I cancelled the other appt.

August 27, 2014

Trevor Nelson is clear, thorough, knowledgable, friendly, collaborative. He inspires confidence.

August 24, 2014

August 21, 2014

July 29, 2014

Tyler Nelson is awesome

July 28, 2014

I had a great visit with Tyler! He was extremely helpful in explaining my problem and very thorough about what I could do to help treat and prevent it. I am also moving out of the country, so Tyler made sure I was signed up for MyChart in case I have questions and gave suggestions of how I can continue getting the prescriptions while away, including giving me a larger amount of prescription to stock up on before I leave. I was very pleased with the service I received!

July 25, 2014

He was very helpful and listened to all my questions.

July 17, 2014

Tyler was very kind and professional. We appreciated him getting another Doctor involved to see what needed to be done. I was very impressed with them both!

July 04, 2014

There simply isn't a single negative word I could say about Doc Nelson.

June 27, 2014

Probably the most friendly doctor I have ever encountered. Very professional and skilled.

June 21, 2014

I could have used some more warning that the liquid nitrogen that he used to burn off my skin tag, does, in my opinion hurt. It is manageable, but it hurts.

June 16, 2014

Tyler was very friendly. Wasn't in a rush to get to the next patient. Took his time and addressed my needs and it was a very nice visit.

June 13, 2014

I just wish Tyler Nelson had an office closer to where we live, but we'll come 25 minutes for his amazing care.

May 24, 2014

April 21, 2014

Dr. Tyler Nelson is a extremely kind and caring person that is great at his job. I have recommended and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.

April 01, 2014

Tyler is the best there is! I would never go to anyone else. I wish I could of spent some more time with him, but they were running behind. My questions were all answered. Just a little rushed.

March 31, 2014

I only put "good" for "the amount of time the care provider spent with you" because a patient always wishes they could have a little more time but he told me everything I needed to know and assured me that one of my concerns was not valid (for which I was very grateful). The time he spent with me was certainly adequate and he answered all of my questions. I'm not sure what we'd have talked about if he had spent more time with me so everything was okay. I felt great when I left.

March 31, 2014

Tyler was absolutely fantastic with my girls. He spoke directly to them about their skin concerns. He explained to both of them what the treatments would do and why he was recommending the particular medications and creams. Both girls understood the treatment and what they needed to do. It was wonderful! Thank you!

March 17, 2014

Did not give a complete exam.

March 12, 2014

I am so glad I chose Tyler Nelson as my doctor. I will definitely go back and most likely never change.

Tyler Nelson is always great to work with in getting my skin under control! he's always sincere & asks about my daughters every time. definitely takes the stress out of going in for an awkward appt.

January 30, 2014

I've been to quite a few Dermatologists and this is the first positive experience I've had. I know Dermatology Office's are very busy places but that is no excuse for poor customer service ( like what I've received in the past ) I appreciated the PA's bed side manor, despite being busy he was still calm and patient and I didn't feel like I was being rushed ( most Dermatology Office's rush you ). I will highly recommend this clinic to my family and friends.

January 28, 2014

Tyler's always great about listening to my concerns, addressing them and providing me with information.

August 12, 2013

Mr. Nelson gave me a lot of confidence in exactly how my problem was going to be treated and what I should expect going forward

August 12, 2013

Tyler Nelson seemed very competent and caring. He went out of his way to explain and treat. He went above and beyond what I had come in for and that paid off as I had some serious problems that needed to be addressed. I kept worrying, however, that I was making someone in the waiting room go through the stress I had gone through two days earlier since Tyler was taking more than my 15 minute appointment. Again, I think appointment should not be sheduled so tightly. (I have no idea if anyone was really outside waiting, but I was just thinking about my own previous experience.)

August 08, 2013

Tyler Nelson provided excellent care.

August 07, 2013

Tyler Nelson is just amazing!! He is so friendly and compassionate...he really cares about his patients and is genuinely concerned about his patients' health. He's so knowledgable and is a perfect combination of professional and friendly! I have already recommended him to my friends and family.

August 05, 2013

I was int he room with my husband when he was seeing the doctor. My husband has "dandruff" (it has a different name) but was visiting for the acne. The doctor was very good at spotting the "dandruff" and suggest a solution for it without us asking. He was professional, knowledgeable and empathetic.

April 23, 2013

When the diagnosis was scabies he was very tactful in telling me the outcome and was very nurturing. I didn't feel gross, I felt cared for.

September 10, 2012
