I can't tell you how impressed we were with Dr Nicklas. As a healthcare consultant I am used to dealing with doctors and understand the pressure they are under. Dr N was nothing short of wonderful - patient, kind and thorough. He spent a long time with us making sure our questions were answered and (most importantly) correctly diagnosed my dad's issue in our first meeting - a drug reaction that we subsequently learned frequently goes misdiagnosed for YEARS. He is wonderful.

Today was my first time visiting Dr. Nicklas' office. He was the most thorough and attentive doctor that I have visited in my life. He asked me my medical history, was considerate of my situation, and despite his old-fashioned ways, made my experience rewarding. He clearly knows what he's doing and what he's talking about--he is very clear and concise with his medical suggestions; he trusts his patients. I will definitely recommend him and his specialty to everyone I know.
