      Dr Nilsson was one of the most thorough physicians I have encountered. He ,and his staff, we extremely helpful and confident with their diagnosis and care. I felt I was listened to, was educated on my injury, and i left having a full comprehension of the plan to get me well. Being an active individual, Dr Nilsson made sure I was able to return to my activity level healthy and happy

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
