Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nicholson "At Optim Orthopedics, we know you're not yourself when even just one part of you is hurt. Because in orthopedics, everything is connected: bones, joints, ligaments, and cartilage. We're connected too. Our doctors cover every bone in the body and we work together as a team for our patients. We call our approach - Combined Strength, and we use it to get you back to you."

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.
