Ratings for Dr. Jennifer Nicholson
I don't know how she can call herself a GYN, I had stage 5 Endometriosis that was only recently diagnosed & abalated at the IWK women's health sciences center. I wish I didn't have to lose 12 years of my working & personal life trying to find answers to the extreme amount of pain I was in. What is so difficult about refering you to a more knowlegeable colleague when you are clearly in over your head.
She is wonderful. Diagnosed me right away with PCOS after years of struggling with it. I had seen many Drs prior to her who could not diagnose my condition. She takes her time to make sure you are looked after. Sad to see her leave the practice.
Seemed fine at first, but refused to acknowledge the fact I was still having severe vaginal pain 1 year after a partial hysterectomy to remove a very large fibroid and part of my uterus. I thought she would know what was causing it since she's an OBGYN but claimed she had no idea what it could possibly be, refused to investigate and got angry when I asked for a second opinion from another OB. This is NOT what you expect from someone who is supposed to know about women's reproductive health. After repeated visits to my local ER, one doctor took the time to give me a physical vaginal exam and evaluate my symptoms...seems my fibroids are back and causing the misery. How can someone call themselves an OBGYN and not know this!
Dr.Jennifer Nicholson was very knowledgeable in making sure what was going on with me was accurate. She had sent me for tests and ultrasound. Appointments were made in a timely fashion and when the results came back she made sure to book me in ASAP to discuss them with me. She is very personable and speaks to you so you can understand what's going on. NONE of this MEDICAL GARGIAN :)
Assures and re-assures until you understand. Is kind friendly and doesn't make you feel like she's trying to get you back out the door. Listens to concerns and symptoms and responds with professionalism and knowledge. Makes you feel as though this isn't just a job to her but that she actually has a passion for her work and the dedication and knowledge to be a great doctor. In today's health care system (or 'un-system') she is a rare gem. Most doctor's act as if they don't care about you or your problem, write you up a pill and slam the door behind you, Dr. Nicholson is the opposite of this. Thank you for being one of very few doctor's left who are worth going to.
