Patient Reviews
Jan 20, 2023
I have been going to Dr. Nicholson since the day my tumor was found by colonoscopy. The doctor who performed the procedure noticed the lump and called him. Evidently he was in his car heading out and turned around to come see me. Since then, he, his staff, his full team of doctors and their staff have been extremely responsive, thorough, kind and caring. In addition, my surgery went well and I was shocked when the very long incision site healed with little to no scarring. I couldn't be happier with my care and would highly recommend him, his team and the hospital.
