Brought my daughter there and we were on time for out appointment but had to wait 90 min to see the doctor. We saw people who came in 30 min after us get seen before us. Staff and doctor made some half-hearted apologies but were generally rude and uncooperative. I think appointments don't mean anything at this practice.

My daughter in PA had a rash on her back. I took her to the hospital, they were clueless! I went to Dr. Nicolaides and I had a prescription in 20min! He knows everything!! He's very attentive and caring and takes the time to listen to your problem.

I live a bit far from Dr. Nicolaides but I've been to numerous doctors with my condition and no one really knew how to treat me. My friend's mom told me about Dr. Nichlaides as she goes to him for botox and other cosmetic procedures. Well she was right. He's very knowledgeable in his field and his staff is very friendly and helpful.

I went in with a rash on my back. I drove all the way from PA to see him as i was told by my mom's friend he was the best and so he was. Very knowledgeable and was very patient with me and answered all my questions. Was definitely worth the 2 1\2 hr drive. LOVE HIM!
