He is a very good Doctor. Listens well and explains the options, risks and possibilities. Does not overly promise success. Appointments are on time and professional. Reguarded high by other Doctors.

I recently had a procedure done by Dr. Nickas. Twice I had concerns post-surgery. Both times, he and his staff were extremely helpful and got me into the office as quickly as I could get there. Dr. Nickas is extremely attentive, kind and helpful. He has an excellent administration staff too.
