Adventist Health Tillamook Physicians Nominate Dr. Andrew Nelson as 2022 Physician of the Year

Dec 15, 2022


Continuing a tradition started in 2019, Adventist Health Tillamook medical providers have selected Andrew Nelson, MD, as the 2022 Physician of the Year at a recent annual meeting of medical staff members. This recognition is based on blind peer nominations for above-and-beyond service, quality, compassion and professionalism to meet and exceed the mission of Adventist Health by living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope.

Since 2012 Dr. Nelson has served as a physician radiologist at Adventist Health Tillamook medical center where he focuses on diagnostic imaging in MRI, interventional procedures and mammography. His peers shared the following sentiments that made him stand out as an exceptional provider to our community, worthy of the respect, recognition and honor the nomination carries.

“Always answers my questions and problem-solves. He is always calm and kind. He is a key partner in our care team.”

“This provider exemplifies caring with professionalism and education – always available with a kind word! Thorough and willing to revisit a question.”

“This provider is the calm and definitive voice on the phone, or words on the computer, helping diagnose and even treat so many of our patients. His medical knowledge seems endless, and yet he is quick to admit, on the rare occasion, when he does not know something — an infrequent yet honorable quality in a healer. He is often in the hospital long before many of us and stays long after many of us leave. His dedication to Adventist Health Tillamook and the care of our patients is unending.”
