    Dr. Nickerson and his staff have always been great to me. If it wasn't for Dr. Nickerson who knows how much longer I would have suffered with the pain and not knowing why my quality of health was going down the tube. Because of him I am no longer using a cane for short distances and a wheelchair for long distances. He started me with physical therapy where they worked with me doing aqua therapy and trigger point injections and I am doing yoga. Dr. Nickerson was my 10th doctor at UK. I have been with him since 2010. I refer many people to him because of his beside manners and his desire to help his patients achieve as much of a "normal life humanly possible". Dr. Nickerson goes above and beyond because he truly care for his patients and it shows. We need more doctors like him. His staff loves him because he treats them good too!
