Our Approach

YOUR CONSULTATION IS THE FIRST STEP TO FINDING YOUR BALANCE.

Initial consultations with Dr. Nielsen generally last one hour. Prior to your appointment you will be asked to complete a comprehensive health history and we will obtain copies of your medical records when possible. During all of your visits, you will receive a comprehensive review of your medical history, current symptoms and prior diagnostic studies.

In addition to a thorough medical evaluation, Dr. Nielsen takes into consideration all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including lifestyle, dietary patterns, emotional balance and physical health. This information is then used to create a personalized treatment plan for optimal health. Dr. Nielsen considers all appropriate therapies – both conventional and alternative. Depending upon your concern, recommendations will vary and may include:
  • Advanced laboratory testing including; thyroid, hormone or micronutrient testing, iodine testing, advanced cholesterol testing, or evaluation for gut imbalance or food sensitivities
  • Prescription medication or adjustment of current medication 
  • A customized diet plan 
  • Vitamins supplements or herbal therapies 
  • Recommendations for evidence-based holistic therapies (such as massage or acupuncture) 
  • Referrals to outside specialists or other diagnostic testing 
  • Stress reduction techniques or meditation 
  • Bio-identical hormone therapy
