Very nice office, quick check in and short wait time. Ortho PA quickly took my info and X-Ray's. Dr. Nickson came in promptly afterwards and reviewed images and scheduled additional imaging test. Very nice and knowledgeable. I am glad that I found him for my visit.

Very thorough and professional...quickly diagnosed my problem and discussed methods of addressing it. I was very comfortable with this first visit.
Dr. Nickson was very pleasant, knowledgeable, kind, and concerned. Looking forward to our follow-up appointment.
Staff is rude and disrespectful
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 to the 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 his findings 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 from the 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.
Absolutely, great experience.
Didn't really help my husband much. Told him basically anybody would know. You have plantars faciatis. Little too general and didn't help in the end. Husband felt like he wasted his time.
Very nice guy, very professional and polite.
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!
He's very professional and knowledgeable. He actually listens to his patients! Very good bedside manner and described in great detail the causes of my injury and the options to repair it. He's got himself a new patient for sure!
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 waited a 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.
Office staff very friendly and professional. The Dr. was professional and informative. Easy to talk to and relate with.
Very professional and friendly. All staff was also great.
Very polite and easy to deal with.
Except for the unexpected wait time, my overall visit was very enjoyable. Dr. Nickson was knowledgeable and showed concern for my ailments. He didn't waste any time in offering a treatment plan to enhance my quality of life. I look forward to my next visit.
Excellent bedside manner,very knowledgable. Excellent office staff.
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. Seems to really like his patients! (That might be why the wait was so long...I could hear him laughing and chatting with another patient).
He was very knowledgeable and is taking a conservative approach to try and cure my daughter's ankle. He did not leap to surgery right away.
He always has time to listen and explain. Very compassionate and I never feel that he is hurrying me.
I think they were shorthanded today as it took an hour to see me. Once I got in though the doc was great. All the equipment onsite and very competent. Looking forward to him doing my surgery in a few weeks.
Best visit I've had in a long time.
Very professional, answers all questions in detail, easy to talk to, very confident, seems to have plenty of experience and knowledge. His office is very well run with competent and efficient assistants.
wait was long but worth the wait. High tech equipment, quick fix, and long term repair program.
He couldn't have shown less concern..
I was late but they still worked me in. He gave immediate results from ankle scans and had several recommendations for treatment.
Great information and plan of action for problem!
Very professional and informative. Took the time to answer questions. Did not feel rushed at all.
Very comfortable with Dr. Nickson, really liked him alot. I'd refer him easily.
He was very informative, and very easy to talk too.
I was very impressed with their great service, and professionalism.
He was great, very informative about my diagnosis and treatment. The staff was also very friendly!
One of the best doctor visits I think I have ever had. Extremely personable, great sense of urgency, and cares about the patients needs and concerns. Also has an excellent PA that was just as amazing. Answered any and all questions I had and took excellent care of me. He recently started his own practice and he will be hugely successful!
