    Dr. Nielsen is the the absolute best doctor I have EVER seen! I have referred many family and friends and co-workers to him. I was referred to him many years ago from a co-worker. Dr. Nielsen deeply cares about my health and well being. I appreciate his manner and expertise, and completely trust him, and his opinions. Words simply can't describe what an outstanding job Dr. Nielsen does in his visits. Thank you Dr. Nielsen!

    Dr. Nielsen - good! [...]

    I've been seeing Dr. Nielsen for 15 years now and I'll never change if I can have it that way. He's always taken care of me and has made me feel like he has a genuine interest in the way I am feeling. I usually only see him twice a year and he always remembers personal things about me that wouldn't be on a chart. I'm happy to be able to call him my doctor.
