Dr. Dan Davis discovered his love of medicine while translating to Laotian refugees in doctors’ offices during a two-year volunteer mission in Texas. Now, Dr. Davis brings 20 years of surgical experience to people in urban and rural Southcentral Kentucky. His expertise in colonoscopies and gastroscopies, and interest in acid reflux, thyroid disease and minimally invasive procedures is helping elevate care for people throughout our region. “Listening and taking time with my patients helps me do what’s best for them,” says Dr. Davis.
Dr. Jason Nielsen is a graduate of the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He completed his residency at Mayo Clinic and did fellowships in surgery and research at Ohio State University. He collaborates with physicians on treatment plans, and is dedicated to his patients. “Collaboration leads to the best outcomes for patients,” says Dr. Nielsen.
