Dr. Nelson and the other physicians and staff of our clinics strive to provide our patients the highest quality, state-of-the-art medical and surgical treatments available in a friendly, personal and compassionate manner. We treat our patients like part of our family. We understand that your time is valuable, so we try to keep our appointments on schedule, while still giving you the time you need to treat your condition and answer your questions. We want you and your family to be happy with your treatment and clinic visit experience.

Because of Dr. Mark Nelson's exceptional surgical and medical training, he is able to offer his patients the full spectrum of surgical and non-surgical treatments for all foot, ankle, lower leg and wound care problems. He frequently treats complex medical and surgical problems referred from other respected physicians and orthopedic surgeons. Referrals are normally not needed, but if required by your insurance, ask your doctor for a referral to Dr. Nelson. We will try to treat your problem(s) conservatively with non-surgical treatments but, if necessary, we may be able to offer you surgical alternatives.
