About Scott Nelson, M.D.

Philosophy of Care

Excellence, Integrity, Compassion...
As an instrument of God's healing power, I consider it a sacred commission to provide the highest level of excellence, integrity, and compassion to the patients I serve.

Excellence is the pursuit of perfection, combining experience with technical expertise.
Integrity is adherence to moral and ethical principles, always making the patient first priority and treating them as if they were one of my own family members. Compassion is listening to parents and patients to tailor the latest scientific advances to their case.
