My son and I have been patients of Dr. Nielsen for 7 years. He has been patient and helpful in both our growth and development. He explains medications and treatment thouroughly and answers all questions with enthusiasm. He is honest and forthright with any questions we pose. I have found his staff to be kind and efficient. Working to reschedule and work through billing/insurance. As he works 66% of his schedule through online means, it is a joy to have the opportunity to meet in person, too! ??
