ZACH RUSHING

ARMY RANGER

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Nilssen and all of his staff. Other doctors were ready to amputate my right foot and part of my leg. Dr Nilssen went the “extra mile” in every sense of the words. Four surgeries later, I am a 60 year old man that can again run a 5K. Thank You, Dr. Nilssen for caring and going that extra mile.

So thankful for Dr. Nilssen and his staff. I had my subtle joint fused after years of pain from a birth defect. I’m able to function and continue athletics! Thanks for your dedication to getting it right!
