Carol M. Nelson

Expert Brain, Spine & Nervous System Care
As a general neurologist, Dr. Nelson cares for patients of all ages with brain, spine and nervous system conditions. “I love being part of each patient’s life, earning their trust and helping them get back to a better quality of life,” she says.

Her passion for helping patients with neurological conditions motivates her to stay on top of the latest advances in health care. “I love learning about new treatments and perfecting what I do. The reward of watching patients feel better keeps me going day after day,” she adds.

Headache Specialist
Dr. Nelson specializes in treating headaches – from new onset headaches to chronic, longstanding migraines. She’s also part of an innovative clinical trial for treating a new, specific type of headache that focuses on how the eyes work together.

Active Lifestyle
In her free time, Dr. Nelson enjoys spending time with her family, kayaking, paddle boarding, snow skiing and running. One fun fact about her is that she learned to ride a unicycle at 10 years old and can still ride it today.
