Dr Nieland is by far, the best care provider I have ever had. She always takes the time to listen & understand my concerns. Together, we discuss what can be done then a decision is made together as far as what is going to be done. I cannot sing her praises loud enough.

I love Dr. Nieland. We been together going on 8 years. She is awesome. She lets me tell her my ideas about my health care and different things I would like to try, Vitamins, medicine, etc. She always considers it, and if a good idea, she'll let me do it. There have been several times she's told me no. She didn't think it would work or it was just a bad idea. Dr. Nieland is my angel here on earth. Make sure y'all keep her. She is the best in my eyes.

unfortunately the more people I refer to Dr Melissa, the longer the waits get. But honestly, I don't mind waiting an hour to see her because I know she gives the same opportunity to discuss their problems. Dr Nieland is a huge asset to BSW. BSW needs to hire more carrying physicians like her.
