Becoming the PeeDoc – Dr. Roscoe Nelson
I grew up in Escondido, CA, and received my undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University where I graduated as the valedictorian of my class. I completed my doctorate of medicine at the University of California, San Diego, followed by training in general surgery and urologic residency at the University of California, Davis. I am Board certified by the American Board of Urology (ABU) and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. I began practicing as a urologist in Arizona in 1999 and am a partner with Dr. Tay in Arizona State Urology (ASU). Dr. Nelson is nationally recognized and ranked among the nation’s and Arizona’s top physicians. Dr. Nelson has won numerous awards including the 2008 through 2012 Patients’ Choice Award.
I owe my life to Dr. Nelson. I was experiencing a condition that was life threatening had it gone untreated. Dr. Nelson operated and corrected the problem. I have avoided doctors most of my life and consequently problems developed that effected my quality of life. Because of his patience with me and his expertise and care, I’ve been restored to a level of health and a lifestyle I feared I would never have again.
What makes Dr. Nelson different than other doctors you’ve been to?
Dr. Nelson has performed several surgeries on me for various reasons. He has always been considerably more respectful and accommodating of my fears and concerns than most doctors I have known. He does this because he takes the time to get to know me as a person and not simply as a patient.
Would you recommend him to your friends?
Yes. I know that I am not alone in this. Personal care and compassion are characteristics Dr. Nelson is known for. I consider myself both fortunate and blessed to be under the care of such a fine physician.
