Made me feel at ease and knew the answers to my questions. Didn't hesitate to make me feel welcomed.
He walked in, bigger than life, his demeanor supremely confident, and said, "hey boss, I'm Erik Nilssen; what's your problem? I like this guy, I thought. I almost feel better and he hasn't even examined me. Well, he did check out my foot, performed an operation, and the foot is fine. He and his staff took care of me during my recovery and made me feel like an adopted son. Professional, top drawer all the way
You're treated with true concern for your pain issue. Diagnostics are quickly done and results reviewed with the doc,1 on 1. All options for rehab or repair are talked about . Surgery is prompt and follow up so smoothly done. So,so quality care!
I can't say enough about Dr Nilssen and his staff. He went above and beyond to make my daughter's ankle surgery possible. Most importantly, he touched my daughter emotionally. My child has always been active, with this injury she could not even run like a normal child and it put her in a little depression. Dr. Nilssen touched her heart and got her motivated by letting her know that anything is possible through hard work. He helped her see that hard work is not only applied to sports but also to everything you want to do in life. I can't thank him enough for touching our families' hearts and letting her know she can do anything she wants in life if she just applies herself. We left his office touched spiritually and emotionally... and with a memory that there are still good helpful caring people in this world. Thank you so much to you and your staff.
In layman's language, Dr Nilssen removed a bony growth from my left foot that was protruding from the top of the foot about mid-way back in line with the big toe. He also installed a plate and two screws that straightened the big toe. The pre-op process went smoothly as well as the surgery at Baptist Hospital in Gulf Breeze. Post-op experience has included visits to his clinic in Pensacola and involved two different casts followed by a walking boot. I am now in week 8 and walking with the boot and a cane. Plan is to be walking in shoes next week or so. Post-op has taken a little longer than I expected but it's been worth it. The clinic in Pensacola is first rate with an excellent staff and modern equipment. I've been very pleased with the entire process. Dr Nilssen is a great surgeon and looks you in the eye and talks straight. I plan to have the other foot done at some point in the future and he'll be my surgeon!
