"In my quest to find the cause of my neck and trapezius pain, I have encountered seventeen specialists which included neurosurgeons, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, D.O’s, chiropractors and acupuncturists, none of which were able to ascertain the root cause of my pain. Upon my initial visit to Dr. Nicholas, I was thoroughly impressed with not only his professionalism but also in the effective manner he utilizes the fullest extent of his medical knowledge and training. Being a former college professor of anatomy & physiology; lifelong bodybuilder and powerlifter; and owning a successful personal training and nutrition counseling business specializing in health, fitness and rehabilitation, I’am very astute as to whether or not a doctor understands my condition and more importantly knows how to eradicate or at least reduce the pain. After I relayed the details of my injury and frustration of not being able to find a direct cause -Dr. Nicholas applied manual therapy ...
which greatly reduced the pain. And while the pain was not totally erased, he unraveled a large part of the mystery of why different muscles were spasming causing referred trigger point pain. In summation, in this day and age of doctors overcharging for extended office visits (while in actuality spending fifteen minutes or less with the patient), Dr. Nicholas has my utmost respect as he is indeed a rarity in that he takes his Hippocratic oath seriously, being an exemplary physician and a credit to the field of medicine.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
