I liked Dr. Nicholas. As the founder of the practice, he took the time to explain what was wrong with me, which most executives wouldn't do. People who work with him are great as well.

I waited about an hour, but I didn't mind because the wait to see a good doctor is well worth it. He sent me for X-Rays right away, which they took right there in the office in about two minutes. He genuinely seemed to care about getting my issue resolved. Dr. Nicholas knows what he's doing, and I wish I had gone to see him sooner!
