Dr. Nielson has been our Cardiologist for quite a few years. This was an annual visit for both my husband and me. He carefully monitors my husband's artificial heart valve and explains next steps as the valve will need replaced. Always easy to talk to and explains things in easy to understand language.

I have been a patient of Doctors at the Heart Center for nearly 20 years. I have been impressed by their devotion to patients and the care they provide. I have recently had bypass surgery at St. Marks and can’t say enough about the wonderful care I received. I would not hesitate to recommend the Heart Center and St. Marks Hospital.

I am a new patient of Dr Nielson and came to him with concerning results from a Coronary Calcium test. He explained the results and discussed the many factors linked to heart disease. He scheduled me for a treadmill stress test the next day and made the effort to review the results straight after I completed the test. Fortunately the results were promising and Dr Nielson's knowledge and calm demeanor helped me through a challenging time. I am thrilled to have him on my care team.
