    I woke up with foot pain that severely increased when I put any weight on my foot. Dr. Nilson's office was able to get me in for an appointment the same day. He looked at my foot and When I explained my symptoms he knew exactly what the issue was! He seems very knowledgeable and took the time to explain my issue and plan for treatment.
