Dr. Nickerson is amazing. The first time she met my daughter she was able to detect a heart condition that no other doctor had discovered in the last 4 years. She takes the time to address everything and doesn\'t make you feel rushed.

Dr. Nickerson is a wonderful pediatrician. we have been with her for almost every appointment since birth with the exception of a few months in 2017. She suggested a pediatrician for our time away that was also incredible. We really enjoy our visits to the doctors office which is a rarity and we appreciate the care and compassion we get when we are seen.
