Just found out my cousin is being treated at this pill mill. He is on morphine & oxycodone for a "bad back"that was diagnosed by a fake MRI he's on so many meds he's passing out in the kitchen floor, falling asleep with lit cigarettes & starting fires. He also drives a car while taking these narcotics. It seems like dr Nelson is just in it for the money with no regard for the lives of his patients. I'm reported him to the dea & they said " dr Nelson has alot of patients he prescribes multiple narcotics, he won't be working much longer" I hope they shut this drug doctor down soon. I may even go to him as a patient & work undercover to get his sorry self busted!!!!

HI , My name is Desire'e M.. I go to a Family Dr., she is also a chronic pain management Dr. and a spiritual Dr., she is a reverend at a church locally too , I trust her w/ my life , I have three crushed vertebrae in my back , so needless to say a bad back , now let me tell you this , I've had drug addicts as parents all my life and this is HOW they got their doctors to give them what they wanted , they'd OVER TAKE THEIR MEDS < buy others meds to tide them over and show that it was in their systems when the doc UA'D them , they would overuse them and then be out of their meds two days before they saw their doc so they'd be in pain and their blood pressure would be up and they did this to keep getting more and get their doses lifted so they could pass out w/ cigarettes in their hands , my mom would fall asleep standing up , it was disgusting and THEY ARE THE ONES THAT TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THEIR TRUSTING DR., SO DONT GO THINKING ITS THE DOCTORS FAULT < IT COULD BE HIM TOTALLY BLINDLY MISLEADING THIS DOCTOR INTO THINKING HES IN SO MUCH PAIN !!! DO YOU UNDERSTAND < SOUNDS LIKE HE's a drug addict and they are very smart on how to get and keep getting pain meds , are you sure he just has that one Dr.? In my parents case at times they had two or three prescribing the same stuff so they could be high alll the time .. I HATed THEM for it , NOT THE DR. WHO had the wool over his eyes thinking he was helping ... so with that , I have rheumatism , Rheumatoid arthriis and croans disease , have had cancer three times and am epileptic , have seizures , but I'm on meds that control all that and am ON medicine narcotics and benzos , the only thing that controls the seizures and the pain , I used to be a pill addict , it took me 4 years to become the woman I am now , who takes her medicine just right , I love my doctor as a person , not just a doctor w/ a prescription pad , she is in many ways my friend too , I'm not overloaded w/ meds , I have some for when I need them and only take them as so .. SO PLEASE < IF HES AN ADDICT < YOUR BROTHER < IT COULD BE HIM MAKING EVERYTHING SOUND SO BAD TO GET THESE MEDS < AND The Doctor could be so unaware because has he broke his pain contract , NO ! SO < there you go , ask your bro if hes an addict , ask him what he'd do w/ out the meds /?? HE would go to the edge of the earth to get them or possibly overdose on heroin if you take his doctor away , just think this thru , not only how you think but how an addict thinks , because that is exactly what he is !!! Please look at all aspects before putting a DR whos worked 10 years to get their DOCTORATES DEGREE < MASTERS AT THAT , or he wouldnt' be able to prescribe that , so , please look at the whole big picture first please .. Don't be brash . Find out if your brother is an addict first , cuz if you take away his doctor he'll seek out other ways and then you'll find him dead of an overdose , I don['t want what happened to me happen to you because I WAS SO GUNG HO AGAINGST SOMETHING BEFORE I UNDERSTOOD THE BIG PICTURE ... thank you and sorry if I offend you in any way , I'm trying to help !

I am a patient of Dr. Nelson's. I brought up this discussion thread, and he was already aware of it. He said he was investigated by the DEA, and they concluded he wasn't doing anything wrong, although they didn't like his prescribing habits. He explained to me that, at the time he got into pain management, the thinking among pain specialists and in the textbooks he read was that you used however much medication was necessary to obtain optimum pain relief, which could mean very high doses as the patient developed tolerance to them. But he has since decided that the higher doses are too often not in the overall best interests of the patients and doesn't prescribe near as much now. That is the problem I have with Dr. Nelson. He only gives me three pain pills a day. I tell him they don't last long enough to get me through the whole day, but he won't give me any more. The medicine enables me to work with my bad back, but then I can't sleep well because of the pain at night. I like him, but I'm thinking of looking elsewhere because of this.

With regard to the comment from "sugarbowl", he questioned why she didn't try to get some help for her cousin. All she had to do was make a phone call, and Dr. Nelson would have cut off the medications and arranged for some help with an addiction specialist. Instead, she chose to let her cousin wallow in his addiction and blamed him even though there was no way for him to know what was really going on.

He also said that he happened to see the post from "steve" just a couple of weeks after it was posted, and it really aggravated him, since the claim that Dr. Nelson " just gave her higher doses" is an outright lie. After "steve" told him what was going on with his wife, Dr. Nelson assured him that he would no longer prescribe any medications for his wife and in fact did cut her off completely right away. He also gave "steve" the name and number for an addiction specialist for his wife to see. So why "steve" would say what he did is a mystery. Maybe his wife went elsewhere and got more medicine and told "steve" it was from Dr. Nelson? Or, maybe he was just being vindictive. But whatever the reason, it apparently didn't happen the way he said it did.
