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 .

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.
