A great physician, father, husband and friend passed recently from pancreatic cancer. Dr. Jeff Nelson was known for his excellent care to the citizens of Manatee County. He was not a aggressive or loud physician and did not like the limelight.
He made rounds at all the hospitals every day to care for the hospitalized and then went to his office for long hours. He left his private practice to join Healthcare America, later on as it's so hard to have a solo practice due to the demanding requirements from the federal government.
This community owes him a thank you for providing care to Manatee County.
Dr. Nelson, you will be missed. Thank you to the Nelson family for sharing your husband and father with Manatee County.
Never miss a local story.
