Patient Comments (1)

I had Bifemoral bypass about 20 years ago by Dr. Nicholson. This is the go to guy. He was great to work with and was no nonsense. I'm sure there are many great Vascular surgeons out there but he's my choice. The following ratings are from 20 years ago but that's how they were.
