I had a great experience with Dr Nicholson. I went to him for carpal tunnel symptoms and ended up having the release surgery in both wrists. He explained everything clearly and thoroughly and was straightforward about the tradeoffs and diagnosis. Appointments were easy to schedule with short wait times in the office. The surgery process at the Keck USC hospital was very well managed and the results have been great.
