terrific doc. caring, personable, and patient, will take whatever time needed to answer questions, and explain your situation in understandable terms. highly competent on latest techniques. will make emergency appointments if you feel it is necessary. will refer you to specialist if required. recently did cataract surgery and my vision is perfect, for both far and intermediate. he accommodated my desires beautifully even though i wanted the 2 eyes adjusted a little differently. highly recommend.

My husband had lens replacement surgery and he is thrilled with the results. Dr. Nilson is a very kind and competent doctor. My husband has had no difficulties from the surgery and has only experienced the joy of being able to see clearly. I shot myself in the eye with a BB one Sunday afternoon. Dr. Nilson was already my eye doctor so naturally I called him at once. No serious damage had occurred. I was grateful for his attentiveness.

He is hands down the best ophthalmologist in cache valley. He does a very thorough exam and makes sure all questions are answered. Very friendly, kind and helpful staff. I would recommend himnto anyone with eye care needs.

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,
in Logan, UT |
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.
