BJA Longmont CO
I have been very happy with the care that Donna Nikander has provided me over the past 5 years. She is thorough, well-informed, compassionate, and has helped me significantly as I progress to better health. I was delighted to find that she accepts my new health care plan.

I can’t begin to express the gratitude and gratefulness I have for Donna Nikander. I feel she has given my life back to me, literally. For years I felt so bad with chronic inflammation and chronic fatigue and much more that I had forgotten what it was like to feel ‘normal.’ I was told to make a lifestyle change, and deal the best I can with anti-­ inflammatory, anti-­depressant, anti-­anxiety meds and sleeping aids. But nothing helped; in fact they made things worse. My body was beginning to shut down. I found Donna online. At my first visit, she knew exactly what I was telling her, why this was happening to me, and what we needed to do. For the first time in my adult life, I found someone who understood exactly how I felt. Tears of hopefulness and joy overwhelmed me. Donna started me out slow on certain supplements and has added more over time. The change has been remarkable in a very short time. I feel stronger, in all aspects, and I feel better. I know it will take time, but I am willing to work with Donna to feel healthy and whole. I thank Donna from the bottom of my heart for listening, understanding and taking action. I know with her incredible knowledge and care, my quality of life will be more than I could have ever expected.

I have been a patient of Donna Nikander for two years…Donna has renewed my life with her care. She always has time for me and does not hurry me out of her office so she can see the next patient. She is very good at getting back to me when I email her with a problem or need a prescription filled. She has changed my meds and added supplements. The plan she has for me is one she developed for my individual needs. She is very kind and really cares about her patients. She even emails and sometimes calls to see how I am doing. I appreciate all she does for me.

Donna has been our family’s medical provider for 12 years. She does a fantastic job assessing immediate medical needs and offers possible precautionary measures if we want to explore something further. Donna spends the amount of time needed to address our situation. I have never felt rushed! Donna has spent countless hours with our family, including after-­hours on the phone, to check up on a sick patient and make sure that as parents we feel confident and have the resources needed to get through the situation at hand. Donna has such a unique perspective of Eastern and Western Medicine. She is at the intersection of both philosophies and takes the best of both practices and puts them into all of her diagnoses and opinions. This is one of her best qualities. Donna does a very thorough job investigating the symptoms through conversations, lab tests and the patient’s opinion to help her devise a personalized plan for treatment of any situation. When the situation is first disclosed, Donna devises a plan for the immediate and the near future, depending on what action is needed. Donna has become a part of our family because of who she is and how we feel when she is caring for our family. Our kids love going to see her, which is a direct result of how she communicates with them and us. Donna has shown a vested interest in the health of our family. She has done home health calls when needed, and consulted in the middle of the night to help us stay out of hospitals and still receive intense care. I am more knowledgeable of my own personal health and my kids’ health as a result of Donna's professional personalized, compassionate comprehensive care! I have become much more in tune with my body’s needs as a result of her care and education! Donna does not stop fighting for her patients in the larger healthcare system. She will start with what is convenient for us, but if the care is not available, she calls surrounding areas to find what she needs to get the tests done, the materials needed, whatever it may be.
E.C., Boulder, CO
For everything from annoying and persistent colds to tests and thorough exams, I have had the pleasure of being in the wonderful care of Donna Nikander during the past five years. I was referred to Donna Nikander after wanting a change from my doctor of eight years, and it was the best move I ever made. In my first appointment, I could hear and sense her knowledge and professionalism, and how detail-­oriented she was, and I knew I was in the right place! When the appointment was complete, Donna Nikander, not her office staff, made the call to follow up. She provided me with her email address and website for questions I may have during non-­business hours. Just great service, a great [Medical Provider], a great person!
L.B., Aurora, CO
I have been a patient of Donna Nikander's for about 10 years. She has also treated many of my friends and family. I have the utmost trust and confidence in Donna. She is ALWAYS kind, patient, caring and most of all knowledgeable and resourceful. She never makes me feel as through she is rushing to finish an appointment and is very generous with her time. I really appreciate that she takes the time to understand my concerns and symptoms and is willing to address the same at a pace that is comfortable to me. She is the most professional healthcare provider I have ever seen, while also being the most compassionate and available. My quality of life has been greatly enhanced under the direction and care of Donna Nikander. She is one of the smartest and most knowledgeable people I know. I am so grateful to her for always being there for ailments big or small!
J.L., Boulder/Denver, CO
For the past 10 years, I have seen numerous doctors, had more blood tests than I can count, been diagnosed with multiple disorders, and have been prescribed eight different types of medication. However, nothing made me feel better, and I continued to feel sick every day. Last year, I came across Donna Nikander's website and was immediately drawn to her philosophy and energy. At our first appointment, she talked with me for an hour and truly wanted to get to know me and understand my struggles. She treated me with kindness and compassion and gave me hope that I could achieve wellness. She took the time to investigate what was really happening in my body. As a result, she was able to solve the mystery of my continued illness and has helped me through the healing process. I will be forever grateful, as Donna has allowed me to live a life without pain.
N.B., Littleton, CO
Donna's expertise is unmatched by any practitioner I know. Donna has a grasp of the body’s intricate functions that never ceases to amaze me. Donna is the first person to have a sense of what my imbalances are and help me get back on the track to excellent health.
P.P., Littleton, CO
I have been under the care and support of Donna Nikander for five years. Donna has consistently provided me (and my children) with the most thorough, thoughtful, and integrative health care – a rarity I'm so grateful to have found! My trust in Donna is unwavering and something I've felt from our first meeting. It's one thing to feel supported by your Medical Provider, but to have developed a level of faith and confidence that goes far beyond routine check-­ups and prescriptions is a wonderful gift. Because not only is Donna fully present during my visits, she listens...truly listens. There is no cutting me off because 'that issue isn't related to this visit' or 'there isn't enough time.’ When in her presence, it is my opportunity to voice whatever concerns, issues or questions I have and receive insightful, honest and professional feedback. And, Donna is always readily available by phone or email for consult. Most important is how invested Donna is in my well-­being. I've been in the sterile doctor's office where everything is robotic and cold. This is not something I've ever experienced while in Donna's care. She's compassionate to my needs, exudes a calming warmth, and is committed to providing me with the most comprehensive and individualized care. I've had a rough past year health-­wise and Donna has seen me through, as a provider, a supporter and an advocate in my health care. She genuinely goes above and beyond and I honestly couldn't ask for anything more. Words cannot express my gratitude for Donna's gentle presence and ongoing support.
J.F.S., Boulder, CO
My family and I have been seeing Donna Nikander for all our medical needs for over 10 years. She is not only the best [Medical Provider] in terms of knowledge, but also a great person. Her level of commitment and genuine desire to diagnosis your needs is very commendable. She is always available through email and always shows deep concern, which is great nowadays. Someone like Donna, with such knowledge and concern for her patients, is worth more than I can put into words. We would never see another physician. She will set a plan in motion the same day you visit her, and when you leave her office, you feel confident that the plan will help. As a [Medical Provider] and a person, Donna is the best.
S.G., Parker, CO
Donna has been my Medical Provider for 10 years and during that time, we have worked together to bring health and wholeness to my physical, emotional and spiritual body. I first saw Donna when I was in extreme physical pain. Because of her attention to the latest research, blood work and western medical tests, she was able to diagnose my condition when numerous other practitioners could not. At the same time, Donna helped me realize that in addition to "mending" physically, the emotional and spiritual parts of my body needed to heal and grow and develop as well. Donna is an exceptionally knowledgeable, compassionate and heart-­felt practitioner whose commitment to integrating the physical, emotional and spiritual [results in] a complete and truly integrated approach to health and wholeness.
M.G., Boulder, CO
Donna has been my health provider for about three years. She provides excellent medical care with a wide range of knowledge in all areas. Her suggestions are often out of the norm of what you would get from a regular internist and much more beneficial. She is genuinely concerned about me as a patient and person and thus develops a care plan based on this. She is available to me after hours by email. Donna has helped me so much and I know that she will continue to do so in the future.
M.J.W., Highlands Ranch, CO
My life has been greatly enhanced by seven years with Donna Nikander as my primary health care provider. Her high level of compassion and awareness is combined with outstanding abilities in conventional medicine, alternative approaches, intuitive skills and her ability to balance not only physical, but emotional, mental and spiritual elements in all phases of my care and treatment. Donna listens carefully, always offers a myriad of solutions and includes my input as we select the best approaches to any given situation. Above all, Donna knows and respects me as a unique individual, not as a number, a subject or a symptom. She is simply a great blessing in my life.
M.L., Boulder, Co
I searched for many years for answers to several health care problems and after seeing many doctors, specialists, etc I was still needing help. Still determined to achieve better health, I found Donna Nikander. Upon our first meeting, she patiently listened to me and partnered with me in exploring ways to help me. Her insights and knowledge are second to none. Donna has a wide variety of both standard medical practices as well as an incredible integrative approach that really works! I am proud to say Donna Nikander has been my medical liaison for many years now and continues to guide and advise me towards better health. Under Donna's care, I have lost over 60 lbs, am working on several important health issues, and I am blessed to have her insight and knowledge to help guide me. She has inspired me to pursue a degree in nutrition so I can hopefully help others.  Thank you so much, Donna!

After seeing literally a dozen physicians and spending a lot of money chasing alternative treatments, I was still low functioning due to complicated health issues.  I took a chance with Donna six months ago, and it paid off because I’m feeling good and enjoying life again!

I always know that no matter what health concern I have you will make time for me and my family. I have been seeing Donna for the last ten years or so, as my primary health care provider.  During that time she has not only been a caring and professional healthcare provider, but she has gone over and above to get to know me as not just a patient, but as a person.  She intuitively knows when I walk in the office exactly what is going on with me and then follows up with any tests that she feels are necessary to confirm her initial thoughts. I feel like she takes time to treat the whole me, not just the symptems I present. I appreciate Donna’s integrative and holistic approach to my healthcare and that I am always involved in the choices of treatment.  Whenever possible I opt for a more natural approach, but when medicine is necessary I am confident in Donna’s knowledge, skills and recommendations. She is always available when I need her and when I am away or can’t get to the office, I know that I can call or email and get the support that I need.  Donna is a true partner in my healthcare journey; she is committed to me and my health and most importantly she really cares.  I know that she is going to spend the time that it takes to really listen to me and understand my concerns and I always feel like I am her most important patient when I am with her. Donna’s supportive and nurturing style is exactly what I need and I never hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.  I am truly better off because Donna is in my life.

I have been a patient of Donna Nikander for nearly two years. I have gone to several different Doctors over the past several years and Donna has renewed my life with her care. She always has time for me and does not hurry me out of her office so she can see the next patient. She is very good at getting back to me when I e-mail her with a problem or need a prescription filled. She has changed my meds that I was on when I first went to her along prescribing supplements along with the prescription drugs. The plan she has for me is one she developed for my needs and not one that she would give to everyone weather they needed it or not. She is very kind and really cares about her patients. She even e-mails and sometimes calls me on the phone to see how I am doing. Donna is always concerned about how I am doing and really does care. For that I appreciate all she does for me.
A.S., Ft. Collins, CO
Donna has provided health care for me and my family for over 15 years. She provides exceptionally compassionate care, and is dedicated to her patients. She makes me feel like I am her most important patient of the day, and calmly listens to me without ever seeming rushed. She listens with her heart as well as her mind giving her an advantage over most medical practitioners. I appreciate her depth of scientific, holistic, and spiritual knowledge that she blends together in order to make a health assessment that addresses the root cause of issues instead of just symptoms. She approaches the psychological aspects of illness, acknowledging how important our mental health is to our overall health. Using creative solutions to care, she makes the treatments as easy for the patients as possible, helping us to be compliant in our own care. Donna is so committed to providing excellent care that she answers emails and returns phone calls after regular business hours and on weekends, and makes every effort to accommodate her patients’ needs. Donna is a magnificent health care provider as well as someone you will want to call your friend.
