What People Say About Dr. Nicholas Halikis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
After making me wait 30+ minutes he entered the exam room with another person. He did not apologize for the wait and he did not introduce the random person in the room taking notes. He didn’t ask if it was ok that there was another person in the room during my appointment. I felt very uncomfortable. He didn’t connect with me at all. I told him the level of pain I was experiencing and he brushed it off. I later found out that I had a minor fracture after I got a second opinion. It was then that I had a cast put on. He needs to care more and not minimize people’s pain. Think about how the patient feels; in pain, not an expert in medicine, vulnerable, seeking help... I felt like I was talking to a robot half the time.
