Ratings for Dr. Matthew D. Nielsen
Saw Dr. Nelson for a second opinion regarding revision surgery after a pin broke after the first foot surgery. His solution was to wear a brace on my foot/leg instead of repairing the damage and correcting it because I was overweight. I returned to the first surgeon, he removed the broken hardware and fused the bones. Three and a half years later, I am still pain-free. It is very frustrating when Doctors refuse to perform appropriate treatment because of their bias toward overweight patients.
I have never had a Dr. who was as friendly and personable as Dr. Nielsen. He took the time to explain my situation and my options very carefully and helped guide me to a solution. He operated on me and he even called me personally the night of surgery to make sure I was doing well. I was blown away by this level of concern for my well-being. Now months later, my foot looks and feels so much better - I have sent several friends his way and will continue to refer any one to this kind and gentle doctor.
I had a bunionectomy last year preformed by Dr. neilson. I have to have it redone because the hardware is too large for my small foot. I would not recomed this dr to anybody.
Dr. Nielsen fixed problems through surgery for pain I have had in my foot for years. He is a very skilled surgeon, fixed my problem and barely left a scar. He is very personable and caring. I would highly recommend him to anyone with foot problems no matter how little or severe. He has also helped my husband, daughter, father and friends with various issues and they have all been highly satisfied.
My teen daughter has been seeing Dr. Nielsen after she fractured her foot in basketball. He is very nice and caring. Makes her feel very comfortable. He likes to joke with her to make her laugh. He is very knowledgeable, explained in great detail the x-ray and his diagnosis and treatment. My husband has also been his patient for a stress fracture and really liked him as well, which is why we trusted him with our daughter's sports injury. Highly recommend him.
