She wonderful Dr. Sadly I have endometriosis. instead of just jumping into surgery she listened and really cared about what I was dealing with. Surgery that was suppose to last 4 hours at most lasted way long. When things started going back she didnt give up or quit she just kept going she even called my primary to the surgery. I remember seeing Dr Nick after surgery as she told me the endometriosis was so bad that I had to have Hysterectomy, she Held my hand. I'm so glad I Had her as my Dr.

I recently had a laparotomy that was performed by Dr. Nick. I had struggled with the idea of getting surgery to remove 2 large masses that 3 other doctors said that they couldn't remove without taking both of my ovaries out. Dr. Nick was PHENOMENAL. She was compassionate and understanding. She gave me the confidence and reassurance that I needed, since this was my first major surgery. She removed Stage 4 endometriosis and salvaged 1 of my ovaries and 1 of my tubes so that we can still have kids!

Dr. Nick performed a difficult procedure on my mother, which other physician’s would not even consider due to her health complications. Her skill and dedication to finding the best solution for my mother has drastically improved mom’s quality of life. I truly cannot recommend Dr. Nick enough.

Dr. Alpa Nick and her staff are AMAZING! Dr. Nicks was caring, compassionate, knowledgeable and reassuring during all encounters. Her team was thorough and made sure that all medications required after surgery where written and filled ahead of surgery. Her advanced recovery processes controlled pain levels effectively with minimal narcotics. Feeling BLESSED to have been referred to such an outstanding physician and practice!

I have had a great experience with Dr. Alpa Nick. She is dedicated and professional. Each time I visited her office, she never made me feel rushed. I ended up having to have an operation, and she was my surgeon. She answered every question I had and thoroughly explained everything leading up to the surgery and in my follow-up appointments. Going into surgery, it was comforting to have a feeling of trust and connection with my surgeon and her team. I would recommend Dr. Nick to anyone.
