The doctor was really nice however her assistant seemed like she didn’t really know what she was doing and the communication between back and front office were a little off when I got upfront the girls were ready to dismiss mewhile the doc wanted me to get my blood drawn I had to ask the front desk to reassure themselves because I knew the doc wanted me to get my blood drawn but overall experience it was okay I’ll only be going back because at this point I don’t want to keep switching pcp’s.

Clearly very knowledgeable and professional. Gave me options on my treatment that I've never known about before. Would have appreciated a more friendly greeting, but I'm looking for a good doctor, not a best friend - I think I found one.I think Dr. Nikou and I will get along great.

The office is very easy to find with a lot of parking. The staff was very friendly and helpful in assisting me. The wait was kind of long but Dr. Nikou spent a good amount of time addressing my concerns and gave me good advice.
