How likely are you to recommend Dr. Nickel?

(Select your rating)
Dr Nickel and the staff at Ventura Orthopedic are great to work with. I feel in very competent hands with them. I searched for quite some time for a surgeon to perform a complex orthopedic procedure on me. Dr. Nickel came highly recommended, and I could not be more pleased with my progress.
