He sees patients before they embark on surgery, works alongside Dr. Wright during surgery, and helps patients during their postoperative recovery. “I enjoy getting to know our patients and determining how we can best help them as they pursue various surgical options to improve their health,” says Nelson, who’s been at the Center for four years. A board certified former ophthalmologist, Nelson received his medical school training at St Louis University and completed his residency at the University of Washington, and performed surgery for twenty years at Virginia Mason in Seattle, WA.
