Positive Review From Patients

I’ve seen over 20 different medical providers in my life, and I’ve never had a provider pay more attention to fine detail than Dr. Nelson. She found issues for me that other providers had recently glossed over and dismissed. Prior to seeing Dr. Nelson, my previous providers would only run 3-4 “standard” things on my annual blood work. Kirsten now runs over 20 separate blood tests quarterly as I strive to feel the best that I can. Just because you have a “clean bill of health” doesn’t mean that Dr. Nelson can’t help you feel the best you ever have! She’s helped me with overall wellness, histamine intolerance/problems, testosterone replacement therapy and chronic illness. I’ve never felt better after following her treatment plans.

Dr. Kirsten is a gem of a human. I had pursued various treatments from my conventional PCP, once I started with with Dr. Kirsten and took a more holistic approach my health got better within 3 months. Her attention to detail, responsiveness, and knowledge is unmatched. I especially appreciated her follow up emails with links and scientific articles for support. Thank Dr. Kirsten for helping change my life. I will be a patient and friend for life.

Over the past several years I have been progressively working towards a higher level of health and wellness. I am grateful to have found Kirsten. The level of care she provides is exceptional. She listened carefully to my goals, asked the right questions, put together the right screening and test panels, and used this information to create a bespoke plan on point to my goals. Most of all, she is truly compassionate and deeply caring.

Dr Nelson has completely changed how I view healthcare and my well-being. In the past when I had aches or pains I thought I’d just have to live with it. I felt like the doctors would discount what I was going through and describing. In contrast, Dr Nelson truly listens and puts real time and energy into understanding what’s going on. She puts in the extra effort and care that you would only expect from family. Think about the best nurse you’ve ever had, the one that somehow knew exactly what you needed to be able to feel comfortable, and had the perfect mix of listening and asking questions to understand what’s going on. Now think of the best doctor you’ve had a the one that could answer all of your questions and explain it all in a way you understood. Mix those two and that’s the kind of care you get from Dr Nelson. I know it probably sounds like I’m exaggerating but I’m not. I just think that everyone should be heard and have a provider who is an advocate for you - that’s something I didn’t have before. With Dr Nelson you’ll remember / realize that going to the doctor is “health” and “care”. I’ll stop rambling now so you can go schedule an appointment.

I had an exceptional experience with Dr. Kirsten Nelson, and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a compassionate and intelligent physician. Dr. Nelson's genuine warmth, active listening, and dedication to patient empowerment creates a unique and positive atmosphere. After my visit, Dr. Nelson sent a detailed follow-up, including peer-reviewed articles supporting her recommendations. This level of thoroughness and commitment to patient education is extraordinary. Unlike any other healthcare professional, Dr. Nelson made me feel in control of my health, taking the time to explain science-based approaches without pushing medications. Her extensive knowledge and dedication to evidence-based practices were evident, instilling confidence in her recommendations. If you're looking for a physician who truly cares about your well-being and strives to empower your healthcare journey, Dr. Kirsten Nelson is the ideal choice.

Kirsten is the best! I’ve been to numerous professionals and have never received care like this before. She truly does want to get to the root of the issue. I love that she will give you the best of both worlds when it comes to balancing holistic & western medicine. She truly cares and will listen to you thoroughly. I’ve never felt rushed with her. She responds very quickly with any questions I’ve had. She will run bloodwork, and also check in on other types of testing like urine and stool if needed. No other provider has ever truly wanted to get to the root cause of my chronic symptoms until Kirsten. If you’re hesitant or worried about starting over with a new doc, don’t be, she will take such good care of you!

Before coming to Dr. Nelson, I felt like I didn’t understand what was going on with my body and my family physician would not listen to my concerns and run more than the basics for bloodwork. Meeting with Kirsten, she listened and was empathetic and walked me through what we would be doing. She ran a lot of really great blood panels on me. When she got my results she went through them in great detail and explained it all to me as well as gave me a care plan. The best thing about being her patient is that she is always so responsive when you message her with a question and she truly cares! I’ve been on my wellness plan for over a week and I can see so many positive changes! I am sleeping the best I ever have and my stress is so manageable without being on prescription drugs and being able to do it all naturally.

I’ve been working with Kirsten for almost 6 months now! I am perimenopausal and was having night sweats and insomnia! She’s reviewed my bloodwork a few times and has added in hormone therapy! I am sleeping more and sweating less! Love that she sees both sides of the coin with “medicine.”

Dr Kirsten pays detailed attention to your overall health looking for the root problem. She does not dismisses how you feel, instead she orders every lab testing possible to find out what’s happening in your body. I am very happy with Dr Kirsten. She is the best!

Medical Weight Loss FAQ’s

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive, physician-supervised approach to weight management. Unlike standard diet programs, medical weight loss plans are tailored to your individual health needs and metabolic profile, incorporating medical diagnostics, lifestyle modifications, nutritional planning, and, when appropriate, prescription medications or therapies.
The key difference between medical weight loss and regular dieting lies in the personalized and comprehensive approach medical weight loss offers. It involves close supervision by healthcare professionals who understand the complexities of weight management, including underlying medical conditions, hormonal imbalances, and metabolic rates. This allows for a more effective and sustainable weight loss plan compared to generic diet programs.
During your initial consultation, a medical professional will assess your medical history, dietary habits, lifestyle factors, and any underlying health conditions. This may involve blood tests, body composition analysis, and other diagnostics to understand your metabolism and health status fully. Based on this evaluation, a personalized weight loss plan will be developed to meet your specific needs and goals.
Not always. The use of prescription medications in a medical weight loss program is determined based on individual needs, health status, and weight loss goals. Medications may be prescribed to help manage appetite, improve metabolic health, or address specific weight-related health issues. However, many medical weight loss plans also focus on lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and physical activity as foundational components of the program.
Yes, when supervised by experienced healthcare professionals, medical weight loss is both safe and effective. These programs are designed to achieve gradual, sustainable weight loss while improving overall health and well-being. Medical supervision ensures that any potential risks are minimized, and adjustments can be made to the plan as needed to ensure safety and effectiveness
