Our Team

Dana L. Nelson, MD

My goal is to provide timely, accurate pathology results so the patient and their health provider(s) can make the most appropriate and informed decisions regarding treatment and prognosis.

I like just about anything outdoors but the top of the list includes golfing, gardening, running and spending time on the water.

I skated at a hockey clinic in Le Sueur, MN, with Bobby Suter and Ken Morrow weeks before they won the gold medal at the 1980 Olympics and became the Miracle on Ice team. I was the only girl there and the only one in figure skates.
