Patient Comments (4)

Dr Niccolai did orthoscopic surgery on my knee. He was reluctant to operate until we were sure it would not heal without surgery. The surgery fixed the issue and allowed me to run again. Great experience.

Doctor Niccolai was very pleasant and attentive. He asked questions, checked for pain and treated my condition. He took the time to answer all my questions and gave me helpful information. His staff was also very professional.

Has no respect or even a basic concern for his patients. The worst medical experience I have encountered in my life. Considers himself too important to be bothered. Does not communicate unless he thinks it will benefit him. Do not make the mistake of having yourself or your loved ones be abused...more
