    in Sierra Madre, CA |
    My appointments with Dr. Nickowitz are accomplished very professionally, but always in a manner that is understandable to the layman. He is willing to spend the time necessary to make sure I don't leave with unanswered questions and concerns.
    in Claremont, CA |
    As Dr Nickowitz was referred by my doctor, I attempted to make the initial appt and left two separate messages but called 5 times to schedule my procedure (the receptionist never pick up, only a recordered message by "Dan") asking for a call back. No call back, I'm glad it was not an emergency. I'm taking this as a sign for me to go to another doctor.
    in Monrovia, CA |
    Dr. Nickowitz is very knowledgeable and has a calm and reassuring demeanor. His staff was amazing when setting up my hospital exam appointment and clearly and patiently explained everything that I would need to do to prepare for the test. He is very busy, so it may be a few weeks before you can get in to see him unless it is an emergency, but he is worth the wait.
