Staff was not as pleasant as in the past. Follow-up on visit was poor as I had to call back 3 times before talking with nurse and assistant.

Dr Nicholson always takes the time to find out how you are doing, not just medically but your life. We also discuss other non-heart related issues that could have an impact on your overall health. He never rushes through the exam and makes you feel like he is truly interested.

Dr. Nicholson is EXCELLENT too. He was compassionate, took the time to listen to all of my concerns, he never rushed thru my appointments with him. He sincerely cared about me and my health issues. He totally puts you at ease when talking to you. AWESOME bedside manner.

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.
