Dr. Nickleach is my go to provider that I always request for my children's healthcare. I feel that she is welcoming and truly understands my child and I's needs and questions. I love that she remembers my children and the last time that she has seen them BEFORE she has to review her notes from previous visits. Our visit truly felt as a personal one-on-one experience where my child's well being was her number one priority. Dr. Nickleach also remained in the room for ample time to address EVERY single question, comment, or concern without the feeling of being rushed. She consoles my children even when it is passed nap time and they are too tired to function for their examinations. A pediatrician needs to be patient, but I give this provider 5/5 stars on patience, because even my pediatrician growing up was not this patient with children. I currently drive 35 minutes one way just for her to remain my children's pediatrician.
wonderful very thorough.
I absolutely love this doctor. she was so good with my little both times he has seen her.
Dr. Nickleich is a very caring and understanding doctor. My child had a concern, and Dr. Nickleich took her time to understand what daughter was concerned about and came to the best conclusion possible at this time. She is also very friendly and makes myself and my 10 year old daughter feel comfortable.
We always get the information we need when we see the doctor.
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.
