    For over 20 yrs. I've gone to the VA. After 2 visits w/Dr. Nielsen I'll be coming more often - the VA can be good to ok but Dr. Nielsen is MUCH better!!

    He is always running at least 30 min behind. regardless of when I book my appt. I can gurantee I will not see him until 30 min past my appt. time and usually it is more like 45-60 min. Super frustrating!

    Long wait for doc. Did not elaborate on diet. Did not explain seriousness of CKD. Needed more info on what not to eat & why.

    my concerns were addressed and I was made to feel comfortable at the visit. Dr. Nelson always shakes my hand, warmly welcomes me, listens and validateds my concerns.

    Great experience

    I didn't realize I was so sick. Dr. Nielsen was right on top of things; told me he was glad I came in so I could be treated before pneumonia set in. He knows my allergies & gave the proper medicine. I'm finally starting to feel well!

    This was my first visit to Dr Nielsen since my dr retired. I was surprised that neither the nursing staff nor doctor seemed to know why I was there. I had my original physical rescheduled by IHC when Dr. [...] retired and I thought it was on the schedule as a yearly physical. actually first time I've ever had a fully clothed yearly exam.

    Experienced on Jan 22, 2019

    Dr. Nielsen knows my history and makes sure that I am seen when I need and that I have the night medication if I need it. He also has the best nursing staff. They are all very kind and caring.

    Dr. Nielsen is awesome. I hope IHC appreciates his experience, knowledge, professional kind demeanor of their Doctor.

    Waited an hour in the exam room before the doctor came in. The doctor also brought in another person with him and didn't explain who he was or why he was there, it was a little uncomfortable. The doctor did a good job explained my condition but I think waiting an hour is unacceptable.

    Dr. Nielsen is reassuring, brilliant and engaging.

    Dr Nielsen has been taking care of our family for over 17 years. And when we come in he treats us like we are his family. We joke and laugh even when we're not feeling that great. He is genuinely concerned about us and what's going on in our lives. He always remembers to askabout the kids, my husband and how they are doing and their accomplishments. He has become a true friend and one of the best doctors I have ever had.

    Experienced on Dec 12, 2018

    He spent less than 10 minutes in my room, did not listen to a thing I said and when I called & follow up about my labs, I never received a call back. I will never see this provider again.

    I always feel that this doctor is interested in my wellness.
