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!

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

February 03, 2014


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.

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.

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.
