    Corona, CA |
    Dr. Nielson was highly recommended by a Ped. Chief of Ortho. from another hospital to perform open surgery on our 10 year old. All my questions were answered and I was very comfortable leaving our daughter in the hands of Dr. Nielson and his team. He is an excellent doctor and I highly recommend him.
