Dr. Nielsen is wonderful. She sits and listens to all of my questions and offers thorough explanation. I recommend her to anyone in need of a GYN. Dr. Nielsen went above and beyond at this visit by holding my upset newborn so I was able to get vitals and change for the visit without having to worry. She is one of a kind.
