I've been his patient for several years, and he has always been terrific. I had an issue and he promptly referred me to a colleague who diagnosed the issue, and she was right on with her assurances. Dr. Don then followed up with me and that showed me he has concern about my health so I hope he can always be my doctor.

I met with Dr. Nicholson a year ago for a diabetic eye exam and again with him on this visit. It was nice to have the same doctor who would know the condition of my eyes (prescription wise) and any changes since last year. He said my eyes are very close to same prescription as last time and no deterioration of the eyes since we last met.
