Dr. Nickerson showed concern about our daughter's possible condition and made us feel at ease by talking about it, explaining how it possibly developed, and making sure we knew that it was normal. She made sure to communicate with us about x day results in way that we could understand. She is very understanding and you can tell that she has a passion for her job. She listens to concerns and doesn't mind taking an extra five minutes to address any issues or concerns that her patients have. She is never in a rush to just get you out of her office. She is genuine and my daughters absolutely love her as their provider.

Dr. Nickerson is amazing. She talks to my daughters and makes them feel at ease. She also explains things in a manner that both parent and child can understand. She is always concerned and willing to talk to us about any and everything. If she doesn't know an answer, she will find it and then make sure to contact us. She communicates very well whether it be face to face or through MyChart.

She is very good with kids. She talked to my daughter in a way she would understand what was going on and what she was doing. Made my 4 year old feel very comfortable. She explained to her the process and everything. Would most definitely recommend her.

The care was quick and friendly. The nurse and doctor addressed all of my concerns. my daughter even dropped her pacifier and the nurse immediately picked it up and cleaned it for me as well as helped me push my daughters stroller when she needed to be held. this is by far my favorite Pediatrics Office.

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.
