"Great experience with Dr. Nelson and his staff at Gastroenterology Associates on Jefferson Highway in Baton Rouge. My husband and I have been patients of Dr Nelson for many years. He takes time to address all of your concerns. He explains everything in an easy to understand way even at times with humor. Everyone there treats you in a professional manner and helps make what could be an uncomfortable situation tolerable. From the receptionist to the lab technicians, to the nurses and doctors, all treat you with kindness and compassion. We highly recommend Dr Nelson, his staff and facility."

"Dr Nelson performed cateract surgery on my left eye one day, two weeks later he did the same surgery on my right eye. I was hesitant to have eye surgery but it was necessary and when I was told that Dr Nelson could implant my contacts into my eyes while he did the surgery I decided to do it. His staff were wonderful. They knew I was nervous so they they stayed right there with me talking and making me feel comfortable. One of the nurses even held my hand through out the surgery. It was like a miracle to get up the next morning and get in my car and drive around like I never had surgery."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Nelson for many years. I was referred by Dr. Louis Minsky and Dr. Nelson performed my first Colonoscopy. There were three small polyps present which he removed during the procedure. I have returned every 3 years. Dr. Nelson’s professionalism is obvious and though he is very intelligent, he speaks to me as a patient so that I understand his findings, his diagnosis and his medical guidance going forward. He is easy to converse with and comforting in his discussion. Dr. Nelson has also performed Endoscopy exams and other tests as needed and directed."
