Dr. Nicholson's office is the most efficient medical office I have ever visited. I have been a long time patient and the customer service and concern for each patient only gets better. Dr. Nicholson is not only an outstanding physician, his medical staff are competent and patient oriented. The wait times are very short if any at all. His nurse is thorough and helpful. Dr. Nicholson does not rush through the appointment, listens thoughtfully and conducts a thorough exam. He is also very clear and concise in describing medical conditions. I am glad to be in his care.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Nicholson - one of the very best doctors I know. Dr. Nicholson was my mothers physician and he treated her with great respect and care so when I had a heart problem I would not go anywhere else but to Dr. Nicholson. He shows concern and is never too busy that he doesn't listen to you. He is the very Best. Also the nurse that he has with him is also one of the best caring nurse - she is nice, caring, & very pleasant. Great team.

I went to Dr. Nicholson after testing ordered by my Primary Care Physician revealed some unexpected heart problems. When I called and explained my issues to the office staff, they were able to get me in for an appointment within days. Wow! I wanted a Board Certified Cardiologist with privileges at the highest rated local hospital for Cardiology diagnosis/treatment treatment and Dr. Nicholson met that criteria. He’s a great communicator backed up by a nurses that also possess that same skill.
