    Over the last 10 months I have seen Dr. Nilson for a detached retina in the right eye, and cataract surgery for both eyes. He referred me to an excellent retina surgeon (Dr. Victoria Knudsen). After retina surgery, Dr. Nilson has since performed cataract surgery on both eyes... and did a superb job (for which I am immensely grateful - I can see much better). He has been available, responsive, kind, upfront, informative, and has taken time to help me understand my vision needs and expectations.

    Dr. Nilson was recommended to me by my sister, who had had a wonderful experience with him in his office. She had something in her eye and he was the physician on call for the weekend. She got right in and taken care of and he continued to check on her throughout the weekend by telephone. When it came time for my yearly eye exam, I became a new patient with Dr. Nilson. He is a delight. He's easy to talk to, he listens, and he is very professional. I appreciate his expertise and knowledge,

    Dr. Nilson has been treating me since 2008. He is a conscientious, dedicated eye doctor. His manner is always cheerful, respectful, and helpful. He is the best ophthalmologist I've ever had (and I'm 80 years old now) and I trust him completely where my eyes are concerned. He has a good sense of humor, which comes in handy with grumpy patients! I would recommend him to anyone, anywhere and am thankful that Logan has been blessed with such a commendable eye doctor. We're lucky to have him.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
