Was kind of thrown off when I first walked up to the desk and no one spoke or said hello or anything. Besides that it was an overall pleasant experience. I didn't have to wait long before I was called tothe back. Everyone in the back was very kind and helpful and treated me with respect. Dr. Nickson was very helpful.

The Dr greeted me politely and ask me questions concerning my knee problem. He pulled the laptop brought up my xrays and showed just where my problems are. He puposed a steroid shot in the bursitis sack.. He explained all hisfindings and he had male nurse to administer my shot in knee. He asked me if I needed anything else and I told him No. The Doctor was very kind and knowledgeable. I will recommend him to others.

Dr. Nickson and his staff were fine. I just wished places wouldn't triple book their patients and make us wait for over an hour. If we make the effort to show up on time, we can only expect the same fromthe place where we set up the appointment. Maybe I'd suggest to let patients know that the appointments are running behind? Again, the staff were polite and Dr. treated me well.

I went in for a consultation about surgery for bunions and Dr. Nickson was so knowledgeable about everything. His staff were all very kind and caring, and his office was clean, organized, and decorated with his sons' cards/artwork which I love.I felt well taken care of and feel my surgery is in good hands with him!

Even though I was confirmed via email a staff member called me and let me know that they did not have that appointment available and if I wanted to be seen I would be treated as a walk in. I waiteda very long time, as I was hearing the staff and Dr joking and chit chatting they didn't seem to care that I had a broken bone.

Took a while for the Doctor to come into the room once the nurse had checked me in. About 30 minutes. But once he got there, he was very friendly and conversational. Did not prescribe any more treatment than needed. Seemsto really like his patients! (That might be why the wait was so long...I could hear him laughing and chatting with another patient).

Also has an excellent PA that was just as amazing. Answered any and all questionsI had and took excellent care of me. He recently started his own practice and he will be hugely successful!
