Dr. Nicholson was personable and explained everything clearly. I felt comfortable speaking with him and his staff who are also friendly and polite. I've been looking for a good ortho since moving to GA from NY and I think I've found the right one. Highly recommend Dr. Nicholson

I saw Dr. Yolanda Scott, who is the new neck and back specialist in this practice. She was extremely friendly (great bedside manner) and very knowledgeable. She took the time to fully evaluate my recurring pain and took the most detailed history I've ever had a physician take. She was extremely familiar with my prior treatment regimen and recommended tweaks based on my lifestyle today. Overall, excellent! NOTE- When booking ORTHO through ZocDoc, make sure to specify the body part you need seen. I was originally booked with Dr. Nicholson, who is shoulder-hip-knee. The office had to call me to reschedule with a different doctor.

Quick intake (it helped a lot that I filled out paper work on ZocDoc before hand) ,quick traige and quick xrays. I felt like the doctor spent a fair amount of time with me and the staff efficiently scheduled my follow up appointments.

The dr was great but the front desk staff could use some customer service training. The receptionist was very dry and didn't even bother to apologize when she completely forgot about me. I realized, after 45 minutes, that she was calling on people to pay their copay before me. I got up and went to the window and didn't even get the chance to say anything. She immediately went and grabbed my ID and insurance card and handed it to me and told me my copay amount. Never even attempted a smile.

great staff, very professional Xray person and the coordinato ws great too. Dr. Nicholson was very patient, knowledgeable, direct, kind, and clear on potential causes and what need to be done next. I was concerned I will be "rushed" to consider surgery options and was positively surprised to see the Dr treats surgery as last resort (worst case scenario). In and out in 60 minutes, Zocdoc online check-in worked perfectly and they were ready for me!

Timely visit. While not a big issue, I did have to fill out additional documents with health information on top of much of the same information I entered on ZocDoc for submission to the Dr's office. Pleasant visit, timely follow-up planned.

Loved getting the appointment on the internet! I hate being told to get weighed the minute you walk in. It is like you are being weighed by a stranger that has hardly set eyes on you. First thing, get on those scales, which incidentally has low bearing on coming there for shoulder pain. It seems they have OCD when it comes to this. The nurse said you will be weighed. I said no thanks, she said yes you will! .... This makes you feel unhuman, should be dispensed with, so old school. Are they weighing you to see if you are ready for slaughter. That what it feels like. Ask me, don't tell me!!!!!

I'm just not a huge fan of having to be in a doctor's office for 2+ hours, especially since I have to leave work to do so. Nevertheless, I went back to Dr. Nicholson because he helped me the first time and he was even more personable the second time. Not that I really care to go back, but I will when the need arises.
