Dr. Nicholson is one of the very few most patient, kind and knowledgeable doctors I have ever had. He explains everything, and all of your questions, takes his time and is a fantastic physician. His P. A. Eddie is also fantastic and all he can to help you. They are the best!

I highly recommend Dr Nicholson - He exhausted all options and worked until he solved the problem with my foot, explaining each step as he went - he is professional, extremely good at what he does, and very down to earth!!
I aim to deliver the highest quality patient care. I appreciate you taking the time to write this review and value hearing about positive experiences. Thank you for sharing your feedback with me!

Dr. Nicholson did an ankle fusion on my right ankle from a dirt bike accident 9 years ago back in 2007. He did a great job and I'm still working (Aircraft Mechanic) and doing great. I owe him big time. Thanks Doc, I won't forget what you've done for me.
