Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Nicholls grabbed me without asking first. He also leaned back in his chair and told me, “just let me do my job” when I asked a question after he asked if I had more questions. I asked him to leave the room 5 times so I could get ready and leave because I was done working with him. He refused to leave after those 5 times until I turned my back to him. He then made clinic notes that were inconsistent with the events that occurred and refused to update them appropriately.

Because he assumed the care of the other surgeon's patientsin his office, who had just resigned, he felt that he must not show any compassion or care to me. He was very rude, did not care that I had not had any progression in healing g, and insisted that since he is leaving in March 2017, and going to Seattle, that I should find care outside the practice......even though 2 doctors still remain. Obviously he has personal conflict, and now must inflict his bad attitude in patients....JERK
