After more than 30 years in practice, Yvonne “Sue” Nelson, MD, is still passionate about serving as a board-certified family and geriatric medicine physician. She genuinely cares about helping her patients become and stay healthy.

Friendly and approachable, Nelson is a good listener who takes time to understand her patients’ needs and concerns. She especially likes working at Reidsville Primary Care, a smaller community-based practice.  

In her spare time, Nelson enjoys caring for and riding her horse.

“Since the age of 15, I wanted to become a physician. I particularly enjoy working in a smaller, more rural community where I can get to know my patients one-on-one, and work with them to achieve healthy outcomes.” - Sue Nelson, MD
