I love this man. As a 29 yr old man I needed to have both hips replaced ( AVN ). DR NICK AND BILL have both done so much for me. I was soooooo afraid I would never walk again ( just my fear ) 18 yrs later never better. Thanks Dr.Nick

Dr. Nick was recommended to me by the first ortho surgeon I saw for my arthritic hip who was unable to do surgery because of his imminent retirement date. Dr. Nick answered all of my questions and I felt confident going into surgery (right hip replacement/anterior approach). Surgery at AGH, overnight stay in hospital, morning discharge. No pain medication, therapy, or visiting nurses after one week. My surgery was such a success that I played golf 4 weeks to the day from my surgery date.

I was a patient of Dr. Sotereanos. I would like to commend the professionalism and care that this practice gave to me. Dr. Sotereanos is one of the most caring doctors that I have ever had in my life. He took away my fears and I felt so comfortable with his decisions with the care he gave me. I have since moved from the area and so sad that I am too far away to see him. God bless his practice and the wonderful people that work for him.

I have had 2 total knee replacements and both went excellent. Jessica, Dr. Sotereanos scheduler is the best. She does a great job and She should be recognized! The entire staff is great. Alice and Bill are always very helpful. After the operations the nursing staff was great. Great hospital. Great experience.

Professional but yet down to earth doctor who replaced my arthritic hip. I, like some patients waited too long, and at the end the hip pain and mobility got ahead of me. Dr. Nick did a fantastic job and his approach both pre-op and post-op is first class. I was actually in and out of the hospital in the same day and came home with no restrictions. Hospital (AGH), Staff, Support, and Therapy all worked very well together. You won't find a better solution to your hip replacement than him.

I love Dr. Nick. I have been seeing him for over 10 years for a very complicated hip problem. He's kind, compassionate and cracks me up!! He's the best. Hate wait times, but for him, it's worth it.

Dr Nick is the best Dr all around . He kind and compassionate . He explains everything . He gives you options . He is always available to address your concerns . He treats you like you are a member of his family. He was my hip dr since 2002 but because of insurance he is no longer in my network . That is very upsetting.

Disturbing! After having hip replacement surgery,I am in more pain and discomfort now than I was before the surgery.There's a lot more I could say but let me end by saying it has been pure hell I would never recommend him.
