Dr. Nixon listens to his patients. I really felt he cared about my concerns and was willing to discuss ways to make me feel better about my cardiac health.

Excellent, I left feeling like all issues were explained and he ordered an echocardiogram to further support indications that I was NOT having cardiac issues. A big relief for me.

I have acute Pericarditis and Dr Nixon has treated me with kindness and compassion . This condition can become very scary when having attacks and his staff is always willing to work me in when I’m having severe pain . Could not ask for a better doctor

Go elsewhere....... Dr. Nixon was uncaring and incompetent with his service for my mom. He ordered a dangerous test for her and the hospital staff could not perform it. After a safer test was later scheduled and performed he failed to contact her about the life threatening results. This is not acceptable behavior and when some one is trusting you with their life a doctor should be caring and responsive.

Dr. Nixon is very patient and kind. He asked good questions and really listened to me. I recommend him highly. The staff were friendly and they went out of their way to schedule my appointments both in a short timetable and around my work schedule. I was glad to have a normal result, but if I ever need help from them again, I will be very confident going back to this excellent care team.
