Her care, concern and dedication has been appreciated in my must challenging time. I'm Hispanic and she knows how to talk to know and respect my culture and it is easy to talk to her. She remind me the family doctor I had growing in Puerto Rico that cared for me for 20 years. Thank you.

Dr. Nieland is perhaps the best primary care doctor I have ever had and I am no spring chicken. She is smart, compassionate, caring, personable and really listens to what I have to say about my reason for the visit. She spends the appropriate amount of time for the visit and is truly concerned about her patients. I feel fortunate to have her as my primary care doctor.

Dr Nieland listened carefully to my ailments and asked questions to confirm she understood. She then gave me her diagnosis connected with a plan of action. I left her office knowing my problem and was in agreement with the treatment. I didn't feel rushed at all. Dr. Nieland is the ONLY reason I stay at BSW!!!
