My father and I are both patients of Dr. Nikhar and I can attest to his unrivalled bedside manner and overall thoughtfullness when meeting with patients. He is extremely knowledgable and I appreciate that he explains things in layman's terms. After dealing with many uncaring doctors I can say that I truly look forward to appointments with Dr. Nikhar.
Knowledgeable but no coverage for anything urgent. My pharmacy had a glitch and my repeated refill reques fell through after 4 days. Called the office on Friday and was told that the doc is out, nothing could be done. Left with a raging migraine with no medication over the weekend. Doc still out on Monday and was told once again that nothing could be done. Migraine into 4th day, and I was told that refill request will be "presented" on Tue(not filled). Glad that my pain is taken seriously.

Dr. Nikhar saw my son on a Saturday afternoon. I originally couldn't get an appointment for two months but was told if a cancellation came up they would call me. They did but I couldn't make the new appointment. Then they called the next day which was Saturday and said Dr. Nikhar could see him that afternoon. I was very impressed. He spent a lot of time with us talking and explaining things even before he examined my son. He took his time and was very knowledgeable, warm and friendly.
