    I would not recommend dr. nicholas. I took over two weeks to book an appointment and then when i finally saw him, he spent almost no time explaining his diagnosis that i had a torn ACL. Further, his billing practice was deceptive at best. I told them what insurance i had up front and they assured me that there would be minimal out of pocket costs for the initial visit / MRI. Two weeks later, i get a bill for $1350 which indicated my insurance had covered less than 20% of the total cost.
