The most thorough doctor I have ever seen. I’ve had lifelong debilitating pain in my shoulder, spine and neck with severe migraines. He searched for the true source of pain, and used every possible avenue to relieve the pain. Truly the finest doctor I’ve ever known.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Nicholson. He listens. He explains. He cares. He rescued me from a pain management firm that had me seeing a different provider each time, via Skype none-the-less. He believes that I know my own body. I have never felt as if I'm being rushed through my appointments.

I just had my first visit with Dr. Nicholson. He was so understanding, patient. He took the time to examine me thoroughly and explain to me what is really wrong with me. I have seen other doctors that didnt even examine me tell me its in my head... Dr. Nicholson is sympathetic and told me that he will help me get through with my neck and nerve pain.... I actally have a state of mind that I am not crazy.... He is awesome doctor.***********

Dr. Nicholson is easily the most attentive caring doctor that I have ever had! After having emergency back surgery and suffering for months dealing with other doctors who seemed clueless about what I need as a patient, I finally am getting relief from the pain and am making big steps toward recovery. I can't give a high enough rating!
