    How was your appointment with Dr. Nelles?

    Dec 25, 2021
    Dr. David B Nelles M.D is a Neuro Surgeon with gifted hands for his surgical skills in Orthopedic Surgery & Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine. He is one of the most respected and successful neurosurgeons in the Bay Area of San Francisco. He took time to thoroughly explain the procedure and aftercare to me as well as my son & daughter. It's three weeks since my major spine surgery, I can walk, shower, and do a few things. I highly recommend him, those who are looking for a Neuro Surgeon specializing in Orthopedic Surgery & Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine & neck. Noel Weerakoon.
