Dr. Neilson is the BEST Dr. and Surgeon you have on staff!! He is also very knowledgeable in his field and really knows how to put one at ease when describing procedures and the care afterwards. I wouldn't even consider seeing anyone else but him!!

Dr. John Neilson is is one of a handful of the best doctors that I see at Froedert. He did a very complex surgery for me a while back and for me is a "must see" doctor. I walked into the office with a lot of questions and he explained my situation and options in a very easy to understand way. I now have a very clear picture of my situation, options and feel quite comfortable with our plan.

Given the covid restrictions, I appreciate that Dr. Neilson was able to keep my appointment via telephone at the original same date/time he discussed my test results in detail and addressed all my questions/concerns.
