previous experience (last visit) was not very good. I felt rushed and not listened to. This visit was much improved. I felt she took time and listened to my concerns.

I like Dr. Nielson a lot. I was able to have a casual conversation that answered my questions. I have had many physicians who ask if you have questions as they are backing out of the door. It was nice to not feel rushed.

Dr. Nielsen is the best doctor I have ever had. I started seeing her a few years ago and feel very blessed to have her in my life. She is incredibly thorough with me, she is kind, understanding, empathetic, and during the time she is in my room, I feel like I'm the only patient she is thinking about! It is so nice to not feel rushed through a visit!! I recommend her to every woman I know who is looking for a doctor. In fact, while at a party recently, I sent her name to a new friend I made that just moved here looking for an OB. I speak incredibly highly of her and hope that every woman has a doctor like her in their life.
