What People Say About Dr. Nicholai Stephens, MD
Reply
Dr. Stephens was a great provider. I went there and he explained what my issues were, some steps to rectify the issue and a plan to get better. I ended up needing surgery but the best thing about his practice is that we tried to resolve issues without needing it. He made sure all my visits were as painless as possible. Every visit he let me know what was going to happen as they checked things out. He and his staff were very responsive and I had a same day call backs. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend Dr Nicolau. I had my first ever diagnosis which required surgery. I was panicked and felt lost on what, how, when to do what. Dr Nicolau and team were great. They knew exactly what needed to be done and walked me through the process. They had patience with me and explained things thoroughly. Memorial Hermann NE is also great.
