Patient Comments (1)

El Paso, TX |
I would not recommend Dr. Nicholson. I visited her 2 times and I would never go back. Her way of explaining to patients leaves a lot to be desired. She is extremely rude and inconsiderate. If a patient has a problem, he/she goes to a Doctor for help, not to be treated like a child and be ridicule...more
