What People Say About Dr. Nels Dahlgren, MD
Dr dahlgren is my new pain doc in northern Nevada. He is amazing. I had no pain relief with pain pills. We tried a stimulation system and an implanted dosing device. I did best with the stimulation system trial ... so I choose to have that permanently implanted. I am finally 80% pain FREE! Thank You Carson Tahoe for brining Dr Dahlgren here!
