The first time i had to wait for an hour to see the doctor. The second time i had to wait more than an hour and half after which i had to walk out. very bad experience. If you value your time i'd recommend visiting a different doctor.

The doctor is amazing and very personable. The front desk staff is also great and pleasant. The doctor covered all of my concerns and also taught me about sleep apnea and the correlation it has with a bunch of diseases. Healso has this nifty medically supervised weight loss program which is great. I will deff be coming back here !!!

Dr. Nicoleau’s front office is horrible. I missed multiple appointments with him stating that I would require referral from pcp to see him but my insurance doesn’t require me any kind of referral. This made me miss 2 appointments and whenI tried to get assistance to resolve it from my pcp. I was put on hold for forever. I hope this place cleans up its workflow

Dr. Nicoleau, MD was attentive and thoughtful in his bedside manner. He took time to listen to me describe all of my symptoms before offering an opinion and a course of action. The biggest problem here is the wait time. Ihad a 10:00AM appointment on a Saturday, and was not seen by the doctor until past 12:00PM, which I believe is not tolerable. The doctor clearly has respect for his patients while attending to them, but he must also respect their time if he is to enjoy continued success. I have a followup appointment with Dr. Nicoleau, and will happily update this description in light of a better experience.

Studies and tests were recommended to find something wrong and generate additional revenue. The wait time exceeded 45 minutes. Crediting back wait time against time spent with the doctor for billing purposes would result in patient time being valued.

I read the reviews of previous patients and choose Dr. Nicoleau to be my primary care physician the first vist I met him and talked to him for about 3 minutes ,he said I looked like someone he new.His assistant examineme and took my information concerning my visit.The second visit he waved at me never came to examination room to speak to me ,his assistant came in the room with a student to explain my results ,""that morning they called me to tell me their was a problem with my pap-smear""",so I was scared and was hoping he would speak to me and tell me what are my options, he never spoke to me at all ,his assistance tried to explain to me but I truly didn't understand what she was trying to say, but I truly believe if I would of spoke to any of his fabulous medical assistants at the desk they would of done a much better job. HAVING A NICE OFFICE DOESN'T MAKE YOU A( 5 ) STAR DOCTOR ,TAKING CARE OF YOUR PATIENTS AND SITTING DOWN WITH THEM, MAKING YOURSELF AVAILABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS, TELLING ME WHAT IS MY NEXT STEP ? HELPING ME FEEL YOU WILL HELP ME THROUGH THIS , THE WORD CANCER SCARES MOST PEOPLE SOME MESSAGES SHOULD BE ONLY DELIVERED BY YOU ,THAT'S WHAT MAKES A DOCTOR A (5 ) STAR DOCTOR, HAVING SOMEONE DELIVER A MESSAGE FOR YOU MAKES YOU A TERRIBLE DOCTOR ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE GAVE ME FALSE INFORMATION, NEXT TIME YOU SEND A MESSENGERbTO DELIVER MEDICAL INFORMATION, PLEASE MAKE SURE SHE HAS ENOUGH KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE ACTUAL PROBLEM .PS. DR NICOLEAU DID I LOOK LIKE A EX GIRLFRIEND THAT TREATED YOU BAD , WHY DIDN'T YOU TREAT ME .I NEVER BEEN TREATED LIKE THIS ,,I WILL NEVER COME BACK THEIR EVER YOU RUIN MY TRUST IN DOCTORS .I WOULD RATHER GO IN A HOLE IN THE WaLL and meet a Dr THAT'S going to help me, than go in a nice office and meet know Doctor at.all . I HAVE TEARS IN MY EYES BUY I WILL BE OKAY AND I WILL FIND A DOCTOR THAT CARES FOR ME .

The doctor was very inattentive today. I specifically mentioned to him I was going to be out of town and he sends my prescription to the same pharmacy. Only to find out when I get there he did not send itat all. The receptionist was rude as well. I felt as if the doctor forgot about me because I had to remind him about every conversation we had. Maybe he had too many patients. Maybe I should find a different Doctor.
