Dr Nikolic immediately made me feel at ease and also like a person not a medical condition. He explained my situation in a way that showed me understood my life and how this may affect it and was realistic and honest in a very human way.

Bedside Manner
Dr. Nikolic has been treating me for several years now. Unlike some consultants I have seen over years, he treats me as a person first, patient second. He is extremely informative and transparent with any proposed treatments and in my view, I would not be where I am today in terms of recovery if not for this man. I owe him a great deal and I’m extremely grateful for all his help over the years. Trust me when I say this, I have seen many doctors and consultants over the years and this man is one of the best !!
