I was diagnosed with Stills over 20 years ago which is when I first met Dr. Nickerson. I just recently had a flare and went to a local dr only due to where I was living at the time. I wasn't getting better so went back to Dr. Nickerson who got me back on my feet in no time. She knows her stuff, asked the right questions and listens. She follows up better than any Dr I've been too. I very highly recommend her...
