    How was your appointment with Dr. Nielsen?

    Mar 15, 2020
    I’ve seen Dr. Nielsen a good bit over the last few years. He was the best. He always was straight up with me and didn’t sugar coat things and that’s what I like. Some doctors do what you want and not what may be best for you. I wasn’t for surgery and he never pushed for it but we tried other options before my elbow was so bad we didn’t have a choice. I ended up having Tommy johns surgery and it went as smooth as it could of gone. My recovery from the surgery and and healing was great. I was able to get back to playing golf and tournaments and that’s what delayed my surgery. His staff is excellent. Dr. Nielsen is my guy and trust him in taking care of me if I need anything else in the future.
