On Friday I did not know what to expect or what would be said,all I knew is that I had to get some relief for my bunion and toe.when I called I did not know what doctor I would be meeting with. Once I got all my papers filled out and my appointment time came up and it was time to go see doctor Nicholson I must say I was quite nervous not knowing what would be said or what could be done.But to my surprise he is the best ever ,Yes! best doctors I've seen in a long time with a specialty his kindness . What a great day for me . 5 🌟's Stephanie Lewis new patient. I will recommend him over and over and over again 💐💐🙂

Staff was courteous and caring. Pleasant experience under the circumstances.

I have been having a very difficult time with arthritis and I’m having a very difficult time walking and just simply getting around. I am glad that Optim Healthcare was recommended to me. Dr. Nicholson is treating me and hopefully I will have some relief in some of my most difficult areas. Thank you Dr. Nicholson for working and providing me with your assistance.

I have always received warm and pleasant visits with Doctor Nicholson and his staff. Doctor Nicholson performed an ankle surgery for me last year. Since the surgery I am healing very well and the pain has subsided.

Very pleasant and compassionate about his work.

Had foot surgery. Dr. Nicholson kept me very informed before and after surgery. Trust him explicitly

So far I am very pleased with Dr Nicholson and his staff at Optim. Dr Nicholson did an excellent job of explaining what to expect from the surgery and recovery. The staff have all been very professional, friendly and competent! I feel confident that my feet are in good hands!

Dr. Nicholson is a compassionate doctor. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. He takes time to listen and answer questions. I highly recommend him.
