Patient Comments (8)
For years I suffered with debilitating sinus infections. I always assumed that they were allergy-related. It wasn't until I was referred to Dr. Nicolau that my life completely changed. She was incredibly warm and caring. CT results showed I had a deviated septum and polyps all throughout my sinuses. Dr. Nicolau performed my 3 hour surgery 18 months ago and I can honestly say my life has completely changed. Dr. Nicolau was the only doctor who truly took the time to diagnose the real issues I had.

Thank you for this survey because I felt as if I wanted to express my delight in meeting and consulting with Dr. Nicolau. I felt that she was interested in my condition and finding a solution to correct my illness. I am very eager to bring this to a close with her skills and care.

The worst experience, she was in a rush. She gave me a prescription but didn't explain why do i needed it. Sad that she didn't listen to my concerns.
in Houston, TX |
Moved to Houston and was having some serious allergy issues along with known issues concerning my ears always being clogged as well as difficult breathing through my nose. Scheduled an appointment with Dr. Nicolau and we worked through all of the issues and eventually opted to have surgery to correct my deviated septum. Dr. Nicolau and her staff were incredible and have seen me through all of my concerns. I can now breath much easier and the blockage issues with my ears are gone! Amazing Doctor!

Dr. Nicolau is quite possibly the nicest doctor I've ever seen, and she knows her stuff! She fixed my deviated septum last year, and it has made all the difference in the world. I trust her and her opinions completely. Also, the office has a great staff. They're fast, efficient, and great you by name. It's just a very friendly office.
