His sincerity and kindness toward both me and my loved ones during a very terrifying time for us is something I could never thank him enough for. He made himself available to my family and loved ones during my hospitalization, and has been thorough and thoughtful through-out my recovery. When I was in the hospital I asked if my face was going to scar. Dr. Nik promised me if my face scared from all the blistering he could fix it, and told me that could be the least of my concerns. Dr. Nik kept that promise to me. It is almost eight months after I was hospitalized and I just had my 3rd Fraxel among other treatments, and my friends and I are all amazed at my progress! I couldn’t be more pleased with the results, and trust Dr. Nik completely!” — Sahala H.
  • “I will never go anywhere else for medical or cosmetic dermatology. For me, my rosacea dictated my life. I struggled all my life with this condition and no matter what I did, nothing really helped. I have been in more dermatologist’s office in my lifetime than I would like to admit and I was at the point of giving up . It wasn’t until a few years ago when I started seeing Dr. Nick that I finally received the correct diagnosis. No one ever suggested that my condition was rosacea until Dr. Nick. Furthermore, I learned not all rosacea is the same. For the first time since I was a teenager (I am in my 50’s so that’s been a long time) is my condition not only under control but my skin is absolutely beautiful and the compliments keep coming.” — Betty W.
