Dr Nicholson was terrific. Pleasant personality and answered all questions. Put me at ease immediately

Dr. Nicholson and his staff are very thorough and caring. I have been his patient for months now and always have a great experience with each visit. He never rushes his time with me and let's me ask lots of questions which shows he truly cares about his patients! I will always recommend Optim Healthcare and Dr. Nicholson. This team is the Best!

Optim is THE best . Thank you ,Dr. Nicholson, for these many years of excellent care. At least 5 surgeries.i think. I rate Optim 200% .

I have always got exceptional treatment at Optim. My visit with Dr Nicholson on Thursday gave me some welcome relief on my foot. He is a very caring physician. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.

I have been seeing members of the Optim Team since 2011. I have always had the best of care from front desk through to discharge.

Dr. Nicholson and the whole staff was so nice and professional during my vist. Will definitely use them when I need orthopedic care.

Five star. For almost a year-and-a-half kept me up-to-date with what was going on with my situation. And now toward the end of my situation everything cool with everything taken care of job well done thank you so much. it was said that I could have died. Instead with such professional people helping me along I am almost back to where I started. Thanks to all of you.

A few years ago I fell and broke both of my ankles. One needed surgery with plates and screws. Dr Nicholson was so wonderful and caring.The main resason I recommend him is I haven't had one problem since the operation and I'm wearing all my favorite heeled shoes again. Sometime I forget I ever had two broken ankles. I highly recommend Dr. Nicholson
