Dr. Nielsen is always able to see either of my two uncles within 3 days time. This most recent visit, he noticed something I had not seen. He is cautious, yet cautious not to "over treat." He "thinks out loud" so you know what the important aspects are. We are very satisfied with this doctor.

He spotted what I thought was a very small pimple on my forehead. It turned out to be cancerous so he sent me to a very good Mohs specialist. I had only gone to see Dr. Nielsen for a check up and thought the tiny pimple was nothing. Good thing I had that check up
