Washington, DC |
Dr Nicholson is good but her office staff is extremely rude.
in Woodbridge, VA |
Was referred to Dr. Nicholson by my physician, Dr. James DeSimone, and was very fortunate to have been pointed in her direction. She's been one of the most thorough doctors I've seen for any health concern. First time I went was for the arthritis in my knee but she moved every joint in my body and started with my hands and got down to my toes. When I've seen her on other occasions, she has asked about the knee but seems to find other areas the arthritis is flaring up in my wrist or back.
