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...more
