Nancy Nelson - Pediatrics doctor at Daniels Health Center

"I love being a pediatrician and consider it a privilege and blessing to be able to care for my patients and families. I enjoy being a part of the journey and a source of support as they grow and mature through the stages of infancy, childhood and adolescence. I practiced pediatrics at the Buffalo Clinic, Buffalo MN for 24 years where I established their first pediatric practice and provided full-spectrum primary pediatric care from birth through adolescence. Seven years ago, I moved to Corvallis, Oregon to focus on outpatient and community pediatrics, serving also as the Resident Educator/Preceptor for their 2nd and 3rd year family medicine residents. I am so excited now to return home to Minnesota to be closer to family and friends."

Additional Details

She was amazing. She even told us options that we hadn't heard of or even discussed with other providers before. She gave me ease of mind and peace with her knowledge that she would make the best decision for our child.
