Dr Nielson is very informative and has a great bedside manner. He seems to care about his patients. I wish he would leave more information on his papers he gives to the patients. By the time I get home I have forgotten everything. Or if he even made notes on "My Chart". Otherwise a good experience if you have to be there.

Doctor Nielson has been my wife's cardiologist for 14 years, and just recently helped me her husband with a heart related problem. Always treated with kindness, very frank in discussing medical situations, and extremely caring.

I had an initial appointment with Dr. Nielson and it was one of the best doctor visits I've ever had. I arrived early and the nurse took me back 10 minutes before by scheduled appointment. I thought it would just be a 30 minute visit to establish a relationship; however, they quickly did an EKG and obtained a thorough health history. Dr. Nielson took all the time I wanted to discuss my health, concerns, and to educate me about my heart. I am happy I took this step in my personal health care.

Dr. Nielson exudes competence and attentiveness. He listens. I am a new patient, and just these two attributes together make me feel safe in his care.
Salt Lake City, UT |
My husband and I are both patients of Dr Nielson. We would highly recommend him, his staff and nurses are excellent. My brother is now a patient and very pleased with entire office.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
My consultation with Dr. Nielson was useful and greatly appreciated. He is providing excellent care for my heart condition.
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.
Salt Lake City, UT |
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.
