What Are Patients Saying?

I had sinus surgery with Dr. Neilan and my breathing has almost doubled the amount of airflow. I look forward to not having the chronic sinus infections. His nurses and staff have been accessible, receptive and helpful with my questions and concerns before and especially after the surgery. They are a fantastic team! -Franz

Excellent experience with entire procedure from initial assessment,to procedure itself, to post exam assessment to explanation of ear condition post process. Plenty of time spent with me by all staff that were involved. Nice to be in an office setting where everyone is pleasant and engaging. -Jim

Absolutely loved him! I went to 2 other (physicians) before him and neither had an answer for me to solve my problems. One appointment with Dr. Neiland and he knew exactly what was wrong. He devised a plan that would help me exponentially with my issues. He's the best!
