I found Dr Nikolic to be thoroughly pleasant and his explanations clear. I went into the appointment having been in a fairly despondent state of mind, and came out much more reassured. Thank you!

At my initial consultation with him, Dr Nikolic was well-briefed and decisive. He subsequently administered a spinal injection. This has gone well to date and was free of pain at the time. At the follow-up consultation I was left with a clear plan of action for the coming months.

Dr Nikolic has always given the time necessary to explain (in layman's terms) what the problems are with my back, what steps can be taken, what might work (and the probabilities) and what the real outcome could be - no punches pulled which is what I wanted. I fully understand the prognosis and what might be achievable with no false hope or platitudes. He clearly "knows his stuff" and I have far greater confidence in his realistic treatment that I have with others in the past!
