Review of Dr. Nicholson


THE BEST. Did right knee replacement June 2014. I'll be needing one on my left very soon. He gave me injection in my left knee March 2017, it lasted until October 2018 when I had another. I wouldn't think about going to anyone else.

Review of Dr. Behar


I recently had to change podiatrists. I was given a list of nearby podiatrists who were recommended along with a wink and nod about Dr. Behar. No trouble making an appointment. I arrived on time. By the time I completed the routine paperwork I was called in. I hit it off immediately from the minute he came in. He was very thorough, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I intend to continue under his care.

Should have posted this review a long time ago. Shy of 2 years out since hip replacement. No problems. Would advise anyone in need of hip replacement to see Dr. Nicholson and get it done. Start to finish he's the man. Take it from a truck mechanic he's the best!

Review of Dr. Carrion

IDK why he chose pediatrics,his bedside manner is terrible. Has mood swings & is not approachable. He was treating my daughter for a foot injury, she was not healing.We went for 2nd follow up appt, he was really odd. Despite him telling her no activity he asked her what exercises she was doing to help herself?! Then asked her if she was taking her medicine. He didn’t prescribe medicine! He yelled at my 7 year old son. When I told him to not yell, he sent us certified letter to stop seeing us.

Review of Dr. Nicholson

- in Medford, NY |

Dr. Nicholson performed my total knee replacement in March of 2018. I am thoroughly pleased with the outcome. After having a consult with a surgeon at HSS (X-rays took longer than the actual consul), I met with Dr. Nicholson at Stony Brook Orthopedics. He spent a full half hour with me, explaining the pros and cons of having the surgery at such a ‘young’ age (51], answered all my questions, and checked his own surgical schedule for an opening that had become available. Highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Behar

- |

I’ve been going to Dr. Behar for four years. I have nothing but the highest praise for him. Dr. Behar always takes the time to look over and discuss my glucose charts, and asks me if there are any questions. He also always reminds me that he is my doctor, and to come into the office if I have need to. The staff at Stony Brook Orthopedic is also wonderful; very courteous and very professional. It is for these reasons that I always look forward to my appointments at Stony Brook Orthopedic.

Review of Dr. Nicholson

- in Centereach |

Dr.Nicholson replaced my knees nine years ago. He did an excellent job. I have had no pain. I can ride a bike, jump, dance and do anything, swim, stand, walk, and I no longer use the cane that I needed for over Fifteen years. I have recommended four people to him,whom have all had excellent reasults. My husband had also seen him. He has an excellent office attitude. He is confident but he is far from rude or arrogant. I can not say enough about this wonderful man and excellent doctor.

Review of Dr. Nicholson

- in Bellport |

I never had any surgery before meeting Dr. Nicholson. I had prior clinical experience and wanted to be sure I was making the best choice. He was highly recommended to me by several surgeons. I had a bilateral knee replacement on Dec.11. He was there with me and my family all the way, gracious and comforting. 4 weeks later I'm on my feet, performing as close to normal as it goes. I'm shocked by how fast my recovery was. In my book, he gets a 10.
