Years in Practice: 33 years
Practices In: Wheaton
Patients Seen: Adults and Children

The pri­ma­ry empha­sis of my prac­tice is pre­ven­tion of chron­ic dis­ease. My focus is to teach my patients life style 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.

"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."
