Dr. Kevin R. Nelson


Dr. Nelson spent his childhood in southern Michigan, graduating from Warren Woods High School and beginning his post high school studies at Macomb County Community College. His outdoor interests soon attracted him to Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City and he discovered his lifelong attraction to beautiful northern Michigan. After obtaining his associate's degree, Dr. Nelson returned downstate to attend Michigan State University and finished his education at the Illinois College of Optometry.

Returning to northern Michigan, Dr. Nelson opened a very successful private practice in Frankfort, and eventually began a business relationship with Bay Eye Associates through their satellite office at Paul Oliver Hospital. He joined Bay Eye Associates on a part time basis in July 1997, while maintaining his full time practice in Frankfort.

Dr. Nelson is the father of two nearly grown sons, Travis and Cody, and prefers to spend much of his free time in their company. When he is not busy with parenting activities, he can frequently be found on local golf courses perfecting his swing, although hunting, fishing and dog training remain his primary passions. He is an active member of the Frankfort Rotary Club and the Benzie Chamber of Commerce.
