This place shouldnt be open!! The office had trash everywhere and was unsanitary..walls were dirty..it smelled of cigs and mold...the staff was unproffessional and one lady was even nasty to my child twice!! He has adhd so that's why we were there and she snapped at him for moving the chair and fidgeting around while taking vitals!! So my 9 year old and I looked at each other and hauled butt!! Disgusting, shady and crooked!!

I have to give a 2 because of the rude, ignorant, obnoxious, and unsympathetic staff!!!! Yes as a reviewer stated; The office wreaks of cigarettes. The wait is entirely too long however when you do see Dr. Nik and not his ARNP he is helpful, and kind. Doesn't spend longer than 5 minutes with you though. The office does look dirty so bring the sanitizer.Most of his patients are Medicaid & Medicare so clinic atmosphere isn't exactly professional. There aren't enough choices in Jax so u have to go

Total garbage Four hours or more patient wait time 23 people ahead of you with an appointment Office is not clean I have pictures Staff is rude, lazy, unprofessional they rarely answer the phone will pick it up and hang it up Dr Nihalni is rude, poor bedside manners, does not make eye contact, types the entire time, cuts you off spends five minutes our less. I do think he is well educated in his speciality ..but consumed greed. They take walk ins everyday although posted sign says other

Dr. Nihalani saved me lots of money. Because I had a symptom that could not be diagnosed by my local doctors, they would accuse me of being non-medication compliant. Dr. Nihalani put me on Invega sustenna which is a shot, and requires me to have a nurse administer. Because I have the nurse give me the medication, I now can prove that I take it. Finally found out after all these years and about 15k in medical bills, that it was anxiety.

I appreciate Dr.Nihalani and ARNP Kelly. They are willing to go that extra mile to make sure I am living with the quality of life I deserve.

Dirty waiting room. Long wait time. First time patients are forced to take drug tests from out of network lab. Had a $2000 bill after first visit and no call back. Dr Nik is respectful and knowledgeable. Staff are a little obnoxious and ignorant. Don't go here if you are not Ok with a clinic atmosphere. The waiting room can get scary and wreaks of cigarettes.
