My experience with Dr. Nielsen was amazing. She was the first doctor I had seen who was actually able to say, yes you do have epilepsy. She figured out I had been on the wrong medication for around 13 years, and promptly fixed that. I couldn't recommend her more.

DR Nielsen was my 3rd opinion regarding my poly neuropathy diagnosis. She didn't change my diagnosis however she scheduled me for PT and made a change to my medication. I feel better and have accepted my condition. DR Nielsen inspires confidence through her no nonsense approach and honesty.
