Jay W. Nielsen, M.D. has thirty-eight years experience as a family physician with special emphasis on Pain Management, Patient Education, Research, Urgent Care and Emergencies in medicine.
Dr. Nielsen’s interest in Pain Management started in 1981 when he found himself the only physician in Erie County who would see Workmen’s Compensation spine injuries.
In 1993, he moved to Bluffton, Ohio and started training in Alternative Medicine with Dr. Terry Chappell and began his work in Prolotherapy and Chelation.
In 1994, with Dr. Chappell’s assistance as President of the American College for Advancement of Medicine, Dr. Nielsen started the first Contract Research Organization specializing in Complementary Medicine, herbals, supplements, product validation and Medical Outcomes trials for Chelation.
In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Nielsen initiated North Coast Clinical Research, one of the nation’s largest research centers specializing in Clinical Trials in Family Practice. He participated in 34 nationwide trials for the development of new drugs.
Dr. Nielsen was the host of his own radio talk show for thirteen years. This two-hour talk show was designed originally to overcome the blood shortage caused by the early Aid’s epidemic. After the tenth anniversary of the show, the American Red Cross awarded the “Good Neighbor Award” for his work.
In 2010, Dr. Nielsen was trained by I.L.A.D.S. as a Lyme Literate Physician by Joseph Jemsek MD in Washington D.C.
