Patient Comments (5)
Brooklyn, NY |
Obviously has no respect for his patients and their time. Waited for hours just to be told while still in the waiting room that he is recommending another doctor. Meanwhile I am still in severe pain and have not been treated yet. Very upset and disappointed. Don't waiste your time unless you have a lot to spare.
in Commack, NY |
Had my right hip replaced 7 weeks following my left hip in aug of '16 ( second surgery in sept of '16) it went easier than the first and I was again up on my feet in a day and home from hospital second day after surgery- walking unaided at less than two weeks. I cant stress enough how amazing both surgeries went with no pain and very little recovery. Id recommend having hips done asap if needed & by Dr Nicholson.I'm back playing sports and I cant remember the pain I lived with.
in Setauket, NY |
He listened to me, gave his expert information clearly and freely, then performed hip replacement flawlessly. Had a low fever a couple of days post-op when I got home and he came to the house to check up. Was back to work in less than 2-weeks and full recovery is going great!
in New York |
He has got to be the most cocky, passive aggressive, condescending Doctor I have ever met. It's quite obvious that he believes he's the best on Long Island or quite possibly in all of New York State. He seems to forget, that WE as patients are the REASON he has a practice. I have never written a review on a physician, quite frankly because I've never had an experience like this.
in NY |
Rude, full of himself, insulting, lack of ethics. Very disappointed. Never visited patient after surgery. It takes more than cutting to make a good surgeon!
