I recommend Dr. Nicholson without reservation! He is an excellent doctor and person! I went to him after an abnormal mammogram. He was very patient with me and answered all of my questions with in depth knowledge and satisfaction! He explained everything so my husband and I could understand. He even allowed my good friend to attend visits and answered her questions ! I cannot say enough about Dr. Nicholson! Wonderful doctor/human being! During my biopsy at the 82nd Parkway location I inquired about Dr. Nicholson and all I heard from each person was positive/respectful feedback! He is thought very highly of as a doctor AND person! After being treated by Dr. Nicholson I can see why he is thought so much of! His nurse Garnet is exceptional! She and Dr. Nicholson make a great team! They are very personable and empathetic! I thank God for guiding me to their office!

I recently had a Lumpectomy performed by Dr Nicholson. I met with him twice before the surgery. On my first visit to him he walked in and knew my entire medical history, and I have an extensive medical background. On the second visit he told me that my cancer was malignant and then fully explained what to expect with the surgery. My visits with him after the lumpectomy were equally as positive. He is knowledable, sensitive and took the time to answer all my questions. I highly recommend him.
