Nice manner! Easy to talk to. Very good at deflecting questions. Gave me a brief exam, ordered a hearing test, told me my hearing was perfect then told me to schedule another test & another appointment for vertigo symptoms. Gave me no advice or options on dealing with tinnitus. Large, nicely furnished facility with many employees. As I left I had the feeling I would be told to come back repeatedly for more tests & appointments to support the business. I cancelled the next test & appointment.

Nice person but did not do anything for me. Ended up in the emergency department 2 days after seeing him with an impacted ear. ED Doctor flushed ear and I was able to hear again. Don't know why Dr. NIelsen didn't take care of it when I was in his office. When making the appointment the receptionist asked if I was freaking out about the hearing loss. Receptionist was rude and first said it would be 3 weeks before I could see a doctor, then 1 week and then made it for the next day.
