Patient Reviews (3)
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I have trusted Dr. Nielson since my first visit to his office, then located in the Alta View Hospital complex. He has always treated me with respect, concern for my feelings and has stuck with a problem I would be experiencing until a resolution was reached. My symptoms have changed (improved) greatly over the years. Dr. Nielson has changed my medication as my symptoms have changed. I would, and have, certainly recommended Dr. Nielson to anyone who was experiencing a heart problem.

Dr Nielsen was on time for my appointment, never made me feel rushed, and was clearly knowledgeable about his specialty. I highly recommend him as a heart specialist.
