Nancy P. Nelson, ARNP

Gastroenterology, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Reconstructive Pelvic Medicine

On staff since January 1979

"Ive always wanted to help people be healthy. Its the best job in the world. I especially love working with children because helping them develop healthy habits when they are young can benefit them their entire life. My goal is for patients and families to understand what their diagnosis means, find a treatment plan that works for them and manage their own care while knowing when to ask for help. I consider every day an opportunity to learn how to do my job better and help kids be kids even when they are dealing with difficult medical challenges."

      Nancy has been a huge help to our family. She is very knowledgeable, thorough and approachable. She gets down to the bottom of things and is not one to over treat or require unnecessary follow up visits. We appreciate her very much!!
