    I'm very glad with doctor Nielsen for helping me to go through with my health situation lately.

    Experienced on Dec 04, 2019

    I have gone to *Dr. Nielson for almost 20 yrs. I just don't like how I know to spend at least an hour at the office because he is so over booked. But he always takes care of his patients.

    He is such a great doctor. I brought my three year old son to my appointment. Dr. Nielsen he was friendly, playful with him, while remaining focused and listened to my concerns during my appointment. my questions were addressed and treatment options provided. he is such an awesome MD.

    he asked some questions I had already given the answer to. felt like he was watching the screen and following a script without really listening to me until the discussion left the script and he was looking at me.

    Dr Nielsen is a great Doctor.

    The doctor was nice, maybe a little brusque. I had some other things I wanted to ask about, and I should have spoken up, but it felt like I was being rushed out the door.
