Dr. Nickolova pushes patients through like widgets on an assembly line. She is quick to see you and get you out the door. She doesn't like when you ask questions; it seems as if she feels you are questioning her intelligence. When I asked about a medication I had researched that seemed to address the multiple issues I was dealing with, she immediately dismissed me and put me on something else that did not work at all. When I tried to tell her it wasn't working, she didn't seem to care at all.

Exact same issue as other clients. Money turned out to be the problem; was clear that this is their only objective. I was an established patient for over a year and never missed or rescheduled a single appointment. But due to a change in schedule for my job, I was thrown off and missed one. They wanted to charge a $70 missed appointment fee. I've never heard of such a thing. When I said I refused to pay such an outrageous fee, I get a letter saying they're no longer accepting me as a client. wow

Absolutely NO ONE should go to see this woman. She doesn't care the least bit about her patients, only about the money for the visits, which are incredibly short. She prescribed various meds for me which are dangerous if suddenly stopped. I called twice, and my pharmacist called once to try and get refills the week before they would be needed. No one ever bothered to call back and the scripts were never called in. I had to go a week off of them which was horrible. Stay away people!!

Avoid avoid avoid, unless you want a pill pusher. Condescending in sessions and really doesn't seem to prod and ask questions. My first appointment with her lasted all of 10 minutes. Never really had an interest in getting in depth with me at all.
