She is the BEST!!
Dr. Nickleach was very good.
My appointment was for 215pm my son wasn't see till five to 3pm . She diagnosed him with a sinus infection n was very quick to diagnose him . I feel he doesn't have a sinus infection either , has signs of the flu , reason I think this is because I know how he is with a sinus infection . He has a fever sneezing chills and so forth
We are always very pleased with Dr. Nickleach. She helped calm my daughter down by pretending to give her Elmo a check up too. I was very impressed by that. She is always very kind and caring towards us and makes me feel like I can ask anything. Great doctor!
She was very thorough and spoke to my daughter about her care in a positive, understandable way.
staff and doctors are all nice and kind
on time; friendly staff; dr was very caring and took time to make my 3 yr old feel comfortable; great practice overall
We really appreciate this provider's thorough approach. She actually asked us about family member's health regarding live virus vaccines. No one has ever asked before for either child. We have an immediate family member undergoing Chemo, and would never have thought that our child's vaccinations could affect her. Thank you so much Dr Nickleach!
Dr. Nickleach is phenomenal!!!
I can't say enough good things about the staff and doctors in Sarver!
The provider herself was very friendly and apologetic about being so far behind schedule
Thoughtful listener, great advice!
It is so wonderful to see a Dr that takes the time to know my son's history. She listened and took action to help with my son's asthma. I am so thankful for such a great team.
I was very please with how much the Dr. spoke about mental health and other non health issues that would affect a teen (i.e. bullying)
she is excellent. she was very patient with both of my children.
The visit was great. All of our questions were answered clearly.
overall a great experience, I called for a sick appointment in the morning and we were seen within 3 hours. Timely and efficient care. the provider listened and thoroughly assessed my child. the provider was excellent with my child.
I love Joann. I love CCP!
experience was good
The care provider was wonderful. She answered all our questions and made the visit comfortable and enjoyable.
She was very nice, friendly, and down to earth. She was also very knowledgeable and described my son's problem using easy-to-understand language.
She pretty much made my daughter feel like she was fat as she explained that she had gained too much weight. I questioned her about her weight being due to her being muscular.... She recommended a dietician. She also said that pretty much no one from this area quill make it anywhere in sports.... Right in front of my daughter. Great way to tear apart a teenagers self esteem & create an eating disorder. I do not ever want her to see either of my children again.
Dr. Nicoleach is my favorite pediatrician. she is a great Doctor.
The whole staff is always very friendly and very attentive to my child's needs. They always fit us in same day when he is sick.
my son has autism so doctors appountments can be hard. she was super with him. she took the time to make him comfortable. i am super impressed by her compassion and understanding.
Dr. Nickleach was super knowledgeable about my child's history also knowing recent issues Brielle was seen for when she was out of town, she inquired about that. It is super comforting as a parent to have a doctor that knows and cares about your childs well being. I can not say enough about her. I wish every doctor was like her, she has a great bedside manner and never makes the appointment seem rushed. The peace of mind she is able to give is priceless.
