Medical Interests

The pri­ma­ry empha­sis of my prac­tice is pre­ven­tion of chron­ic dis­ease. My focus is to teach my patients lifestyle changes in order to obtain and main­tain good health. I pre­fer to reach for med­ica­tions as a last resort. It is my firm belief that most of our chron­ic ail­ments are due to con­sum­ing too many high car­bo­hy­drate, processed foods and being inac­tive. I have been able to sig­nif­i­cant­ly help patients with weight issues and blood sug­ar prob­lems. Since 2010 I have been assist­ing patients var­i­ous approach­es, includ­ing low carb, keto and car­ni­vore diets. Dur­ing that time I have been fol­low­ing a keto diet myself. 

Personal Interests

I love trav­el. I play piano and the gui­tar in my free time. I also enjoy being active with var­i­ous forms of exer­cise. Addi­tion­al, I enjoy my two grandsons.

"Several years ago, my (then) long time primary care physican left private practice to work for the VA. I chose Dr Nelson from the DuPage Medical's Physician Directory based upon his personal Bio. I could not be happier with my choice. Dr Nelson is very knowledgeable, professional, practicing what I would call "consultative" medical care."
