Pain Management Provider is Definition of Quality, Compassionate Patient Care
Jun 14, 2013
Meet Karl Nelsen, PA-C. He is a certified physician assistant for Suburban Imaging. He specializes in interventional radiology procedures and pain management procedures including epidural steroid injections and joint injections.
Suburban Imaging consistently receives positive patient feedback regarding Karl's commitment to outstanding patient care, including this note from a patient's family member:
"Karl Nelsen, PA-C, went above and beyond his duties to make my son-in-law feel comfortable with what was happening with his care. Karl visited with us and answered many of the questions my family had regarding procedures being suggested and decisions about care."
"Prior to my son-in-law's admission, he had two lumbar punctures. Karl performed the first one. The second one was scheduled on Karl's day off. Karl happened to be there that day taking care of some business and he saw my son-in-law in "pre op" and made arrangements to do his second procedure. Karl is a class act and I feel he should be commended for portraying the values employees are expected to convey to their patients. Kudos to you Karl! I hope there are more like you because you are the definition of quality, compassionate patient care!"
Karl completed his physician assistant studies from Augsburg College in 2007. Since then, he has performed thousands of image-guided procedures. Being an active participant in patient care is what he enjoys most about his work as a physician assistant.
"Suburban Imaging is a great place to work because I have the opportunity to make new friends daily," Karl said. "I love making people feel better and explaining their medical problems in a way they understand."
In addition to his work at Suburban Imaging, Karl is on the medical staff at Fairview Health System where he performs image-guided procedures and patient consultations.
Karl would love to meet you and help you feel better. Experience his dedication to quality, compassionate patient care for yourself.
