I was treated with utmost respect, called in right away, seen right away, given all the time I needed. This practice puts all other medical facilities and practices to SHAME. This is how it should be done, and no doctor that makes their patients wait ridiculous amounts of time, rushes them through their appointment, and doesn't really pay attention to what they need deserves to have patients. Dr. Nilssen is the best, he's a consummate professional, and a model physician.

Thanks Dr. Nilssen: Finally pain free after 37 years! When I moved to the Pensacola area I had a broken foot and was wearing a boot. A lady at my church and another at the school where I work asked if I needed a foot doctor. They both had successful foot surgeries byDr, Nilssen, and recommended him. I made an appointment. While he was reviewing my files from another doctor from another city, he asked about some MRI scans. I told him to not worry about those because I was there to see him about the other foot. I said there is no help for the right foot. I've had that problem for 37 years and two surgeries in another state and four doctors later, no one could find help for it. While he treated my left foot I came to see him about, he cared that I was still having pain in the right foot. He took time to review the MRI. He thought he could help, but needed a current MRI. With the new MRI he recommended surgery and saw something a very reputable doctor had missed. It's been 14 months since I had the surgery and I am now pain free for the first time since I was 18 years old. Now I can chase my grandsons and stand all day teaching without pain, whereas chasing my own children and standing to teach in graduate school at 22 was literally a pain in the foot! I felt that pain every single day for 37 years. I had shooting pain that would cause me to jerk my foot at night--kicking my husband for more than 33 years. Some nights the pain kept me up. Now I have no pain when I lie down or walk, stand or run and we both sleep much better! Thank you Dr. Nilssen for caring about the pain I didn't even come to see you about and taking time to go back and review those old images! I am so very grateful for your care and concern as well as your knowledge and surgical skills that have helped me! I highly recommend his staff and office as well.

I would give him ten stars if possible. I brought my son to him after using another doctor that misdiagnosed his injury. Dr. Neilson quickly realized the problem, scheduled surgery and got my son on track to recovery. It was a tough experience but Dr. Neilson was kind, encouraging, and most importantly an excellent surgeon. Follow-up care was great! It’s been two years since the surgery and we went back today just for reassurance my son was okay to continue strenuous sports. Dr. Neilson was again kind and knowledgeable. I really felt like the took the time to evaluate my son’s foot and give him clearance for all activity without worry.

Everyone else wanted to see us 2 weeks to 1 month out - or told us to go to an ER. Great bedside manner. Explained clearly to my teenage son what was going on with his injury. Gave a great care plan and clear expectations for recovery time and red flags that would indicate we needed to follow up again. His office staff was great as well.
