She has a great sense of humor.Her diets are easy to follow and I enjoy every single visit with her. Excellent and detailed nutritional advice!!! I haven’t waiting long for the appointment. Wait time is average 15-20 mins. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO TRULY WANT TO CHANGE!!

She is always behind schedule and once you go in she tends to ramble on about details of her life rather than speaking about what you should / shouldn’t eat. I’ve come for a few visits and each time it’s thesame thing. An excessive amount of time in the waiting room and then an hour in her office for a small amount of guidance.

I waited 2 hours, without apologies from any staff. I would not recommend this nutritionist unless you have the whole day off work to be in the office waiting. I went for a consultation and left without any information nor theconsulter asking any questions about my lifestyle or diet.

i finally found a nutritionist/ dietitian that actually cares for her patients. Ms. Nicolaides took her time to explain to me what foods i need to be eating and which ones to avoid. Ms. Nicolaides gave me a meal based onfood i like and it has helped a lot. Words can not describe how happy and healthy i am becoming. Ms. Nicolaides has really help me. She knows her stuff. Many may complain about her wait time...but she is worth the wait. I rather have someone take their time to make sure I understand what I am doing.. This is my health we are talking about and I only have one life so I have to take care of it.

My appointnent was at 1:30 and I was not seen until 5pm. When I was finally called, I understood why. She is very detailed and thorough. She wants to get know who you are personally before she gets anything started, and I respect that.

She was a great motivational speaker and responsive to my particular case. My only criticism is that she didn't keep good track of time and so kept me waiting for 45 minutes past my appointment and arrival times.

One of the worst Drs I have ever been to. The receptionist was the nicest part of my visit. The dr was not understanding, or caring. She had an agenda to make a few bucks. I left in the middle ofmy appointment after waiting almost 2 hours. She was rude and would not let me get a word in. This is not a dr I would ever return to.
