Dr. Nickerson treats her patients with respect and like what they say and are concerned about matters. We have not always experienced that with doctors. She doesn't treat them less then because they are children. I would and have recommended Dr. Nickerson to my friends who have children.

She was outstanding! Even with a mask on, the care and concern she felt was evident. She listened carefully, asked insightful questions, and took the time to explain the course of action thoroughly, making sure our questions were answered. I felt understood and heard. My 4-year-old came home and said, "that was a great doctor visit!" I agreed.

Dr. Nickerson has always been fantastic. during this pandemic she has truly shown how much she really cares. She was not only concerned with the issue at hand but the whole family's well being during this time. She is so caring and loving. She never makes you feel like you're bothering her or asking too many questions. She takes her time making sure she asks the right questions and does not rush during the appointment. She is fantastic and my family adores her.
