I saw Dr.Nicholson this past week at Upper Chesapeake Hospital. He seems like a nice guy. However, he was very vague in diagnosing my condition and providing a specific treatment. In addition, he seemed to be in a rush to see the next patient instead of answering my questions. I do not recommend him if you are truly looking to find the root if your pain.

Dr. Nicholson was great. He listened to my complaints and then with out hesitation came up with a plan to help relieve my chronic pain. Dr. Nicholson spent a lot of time with the appointment and made me feel like he cares about his patients. The staff was very nice and efficient. Everyone made me feel at ease from the time I walked into the office. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nicholson to my family and friends.

By far the best in the area, takes the time to listen and gets to know you. Front desk and medical staff have been very friendly too. He knows what he is doing and wants best for his patients.

All was great the first few visits. I had started by telling them that I'm there to buy time before being able to have the surgery. This was a 7 month period and I Well had surgery, they still wanted to see me. Well had an attack where leg went numb, sharp almost untolerable pain. I called my orto(hadn't been released from surgery) This was after I had tried to contact SPM, for over a week asking what to do. They take me down to a weeks worth of meds that were 5mg, compared to 30mg!

I just did care to much for him. i was there because the medication i was taken was not working. So he increased it. He does not listen to well either. He just looks for ways to keep you coming back. i guess that is what you learn after 12 years of college

I highly recommend Dr. Nicholson to anyone who is searching for an experienced pain specialist that understands more than just pain, but also the conditions that are contributing to the pain. He sets realistic expectations and I have never had a doctor who truly just listened first and then provided options. He got me to step outside my comfort zone and try something I held off on for years. He sets his patients at ease and truly cares. Not to mention, his staff is wonderful and are a great team
