How likely are you to recommend Dr. Nichols?

10 years ago Dr. Nichols surgically corrected my right knee after coming to the correct diagnosis which was missed by a different MD. That knee is still doing well. Saw Nichols today for a different problem with the left knee, and after he diagnosed and described the problem using models as a visual aid he concluded that the best option was not imaging or surgery, rather physical therapy. Appropriately conservative, using a 12/2013 NEJM study to back up his decision. I rarely give 5 stars.
