I waited over an hour, then was extremely rushed. I was constantly second guessed when telling my symptoms. I mentioned the medication I looked into which could help. The doctor had heard of the medication, but had inaccurate information aboutit and was stubborn about learning as well as rushing me very much.

I have been going to Dr. Nicknam for years. I am beyond a week or so late this year. WHY was I being looked at as a new patient? The Dr got tired of me responding "it's in my records" sohe left to go look at my previous records and came back apologizing. I understand they see hundreds of patients but shouldn't all of us matter? How are you suppose to open up with a doctor if they only look at you as a dollar sign? Horrible customer service and bedside mannerisms. And let's not forget the 45 minute wait for a 15 min meeting and that's with him leaving...

Seems to be a good Doctor, pretty good first impression. But once again I can't rate him 5 star's, do to the fact ha as many other doctors are, affraid to prescribe pain meds, even knowing the patient really needs them,and should be able to get them. I suffer from pancreatitis, angina, copd, cld, L4, L5 herniated discs, arthritis, depression, thyroid disease. And I can't even get a pain pill, what a joke! Otherwise appointment went great

The Doctor was nice and courteous; professional, listened, soft spoken and very kind. The back office MA and the Check-out staff was very nice as well, surprisingly pleasant. The check-in MA.... she should look for a new job. As the firstperson of contact, she should be more polite and welcoming.

They never answer answer their phone. They always give you an option to dial but they never, never return my call. Especially referrals, it take so long for them to fax or they never fax the referrals at all. Keep livingthem a message but no return calls on either Ext. 301 or 302. I wish I could just got another doctors. Waste of my time calling this office.

First doctor in 2 years to actually exam me! He reassured me that I did need to be there and started me on a path to health. Did not just try to push pills or blow off my concerns as "lifehappens". I am very glad I waited it out to be seen. First visit was today, seeing me again in a week. The app took a little longer then 2hrs but he's the only one in town actually examining paitent so, that is worth the wait.

I will never return. Took THREE HOURS WHEN I was early to my appointment time. They lost the stupid appointment of just pretended to, even when I showed them my online submitted paperwork and my confirmation email. Wasted a whole dayto see me for three seconds for referrals he said he would give and never gave. I hate this place and I wouldn't wish going here on my worst enemy.

My phone does not have E-mail. My wife had to call me from home, to notify me of the last minute appt.-time change. Had she not done that, I would have arrived much earlier than necessary. In the future, it willbe much better to call, and at least leave a message, instead of leaving the patient in the dark. Otherwise, it was a pleasant visit.

He was 2 hrs late for my appointment, and then i addressed my concerns with him, and he shot them down instantly, and stated he only wanted to get blood work, and then he would address concerns . As a physicianyou are suppose to be kind, compassionate, and care about people. He showed no concern , or empathy towards my concerns. Upon my inital visit i am now changing my doctor
