Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

I was apprehensive about the surgery but Dr Nicholson did such a wonderful job of informing me and making me feel comfortable. He did a fantastic operation and I am so happy that I was able to have this done. I can see so clearly and would recommend this to anyone not to hesitate.

One day I woke up and could not see at all out of my right eye. Not knowing if it was temporary of permanent I looked at my options. I look at Evergreen Eye center and I'm delighted. I was fortunate to meet with Dr. Brice R. Nicholson, D.O. who made me feel like I was family as he navigated me though the process carefully explaining the procedures and expectations. His skill set in all areas are remarkable and his consultation leave trusting his judgement in in your best interest. Paul G

I was terrified to have the surgery on my eye, but now I would reccomend to anyone get it!! They gave me something for my anxiety before the surgery. Dr. Nicholson was very kind and patient and spoke encouragingly thruought the surgery. The staff at both the clinics I visited were very kind and professional. I am scheduled to get my other eye done in 4 days and I can't wait, my vision is so improved in the first eye its worth it.
