Dr. Nielson is a superb physician. Always willing to listen to and respect the patient. Extremely professional, well-informed, with an excellent staff. Medical emergencies do not always allow the luxury of choosing one’s physician. I am very fortunate to be in his care. Absolutely recommend him and his clinic.

Dr. Nielsen is an excellent Dr. From the first visit he makes you feel at ease and the questions he asks lets you know your health and welfare is of utmost importance. His concerns and expertise lets you know of his concerns for your health. He only orders tests that he knows will provide the needed information that is in the patients best interest. He is also interested in making your spouse and other family members a part of your treatments.

I am a new patient for Dr. Nielson and one thing that I really appreciated about Dr. Nielson was his willingness to listen as I recounted my history and experiences and concerns regarding my health and heart. I left my first appointment feeling that I was in the right hands for the important care of my heart.
