I wanted to like Dr. Nicholas. I never minded her having students shadow her, and I was ok with her running late on her clinics. She provided care for me during my pregnancy. Throughout my pregnancy, she made me feel awful about the amount of weight I gained. I gained about 50lbs during my pregnancy. I saw her postpartum because I had terrible pelivc pain and she told me, "You should really think about getting back to your pre pregnancy weight," as if that was something that had not been on my mind. As a first time mother, I felt like she was very insensitive. I felt completely unsupported! A Healthcare professional should never say that to a newly postpartum mother. For a while, she was being followed by an NP student and I felt more comfortable around her than Dr. Nicholas. That should not be the case.

Appointments are never on time (1-2 hours late). Most of the time she would be followed by students. The worst part was a baby delivery. Dr Nicholas did not show up for the scheduled induction. No did she show up for final stages of labor. Neither have I seen her for the follow up in the hospital? Selecting this doctor was a big mistake

I saw Dr. Nicholas during my first prenatal visit. She noticed something was wrong in the ultrasound and was very insensitive and rushed while she explained things to my husband & I. I felt like just a number. I had to go to the ER several weeks later and I called her to ask a question. It took her 3 days to call me back.

Dr. Nicholas saw me throughout my second pregnancy and delivered by son by C-section. She is a good doctor and cares for her patients. I had a fairly easy pregnancy but had blood pressure issues at the end and Dr. Nicholas regularly emailed me to see how I was feeling between check ups. UCLA Medical Center is frustrating and overbooked. I feel she has a higher workload than she should and would be happy to spend more time with patients if the facility allowed.

MB in Los Angeles, CA – Aug 18, 2016
I feel she doesn't take to heart the physician and patient relationship. I am just one more in the list. Doesn't really pay attention to small details that at the end are not so small. She doesn't get back to me with a prompt response or sometimes she doesn't even answer my emails. She seems to not check on my exam results, she is just assuming. I have to ask her how my results went in order for her to find out that there was something wrong. I feel rushed every time i go to see her.
