Dr Nickel is great! I can't understand the comment below as she is the only doctor in her office.
Extremely poor bedside manner, disappointed because the other's in the office are very nice
Very good staff. Dr nickels is thorough caring physician
I generally avoid going to the doctor. But since it's been a few years I decided to go in for a check up. I was nervous and uncomfortable about the idea. Dr Nickel was great. She put me at ease so I was comfortable talking to her about any concerns I had. She was non judgemental and seemed to actually care about what I had to say.
Dr Nickel is now a Bay Care Physician. Her practice has changed dramatically for the worse. You will have no input for your care and if you don't like it you will receive the "I won't be your doctor" letter that literally tells you not to call and discuss it with them because they won't speak to you about it. Her billing employee routinely overcharges, overbills, adds codes and is straight up rude and unhelpful. You will leave this office stressed and angry at the way they seem to be following Baycare's rigid protocol and not listening to what's really brought you into the office. It feels like being bullied. She acts like a Baycare employee who is not able to make her own decisions but must follow their predetermined, cookie cutter diag procedures. She has missed serious issues while worrying about hitting all the Baycare benchmarks. You should never leave a doctors office angry,upset,with elevated blood pressure and no solutions to what you came for. That is not good medical care and you are entitled to better treatment. This office will dump you with no regard to the effect it will have on your condition.
Dr. Nickel is a Great doctor who is very easy to talk with.
She is an excellent doctor and communicates well with me. She is kind and compassionate and I would highly recommend her.
I honestly think she is the best doctor I've ever seen. She genuinely makes you feel like she cares about you. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes sure you get the best care that can be provided. I love this doctor!!!!
I've been a patient of Dr. Nickel for four years now, and I'm finally at my breaking point. I can't stand this lady any longer. I only chose to keep going to her because her office was very close to where I live, which is convenient when you're sick and don't want to drive far. Dr. Nickel is super patronizing, for what reason I don't know. She's always referring me to specialists for the tiniest of problems instead of giving me counsel herself. I get the impression that she doesn't believe what I'm telling her, or doesn't think that I know what I'm talking about (uh, it's my body?) The only thing she can do right is prescribe an antibiotic if you have the flu. Anything else, you might as well not waste your breath. I leave her office more frustrated than when I'd come in! I've never had such a bad experience with a physician, ever!
I think this is the best doctor I have ever seen in my life! She takes care of me and my entire family! I would recommend her to anyone!!!!!!
Jodi Nickel is a pathetic excuse for a physician. She has her own agenda going on when you first go to her. She is not concerned with the ailment you originally come to her with. She is interested in getting to "know" you, but is not interested in your reason for seeing her in the first place. I have friends, I need a Dr. There are certain symptoms and problems that need addressed, and she seems to only care about what she can come up with on her own. As a patient I would think what is going on with us at the time would be more important than when we had our last vaccination. My problem was never addressed by her, and because I was more interested in my problem than with some of her methods, she dropped me as a patient. What has become of the oath? I will not recommend her to anyone, and I feel sorry if you are "middle class" and seeing her, she makes snap judgments on appearance etc.
Dr Nickel is a very good doctor. I have been going to her for over four years now and have never been treated anything but great by her and her staff.
Dr Nickel is the worst doctor I have ever been to. Everytime I go there turns into one big stressful event. The first time I ever went I answered her questions...she didn't believe anything I told her. She ordered tests that were unnecessary just so that I could prove her wrong. She continually pushes all kinds of vaccines etc on me every visit just so that I'll finally give in so she'll shut up. However she knows fully well that my insurance doesn't pay for any of this stuff. She always prescribes the most expensive medication and never tells you about the rebates that she is supposed to provide. Despite this, she also I correctly codes my visits for the insurance every single time. Then it takes another 6 months to get her to fix her mistake. I do not recommend anyone going to her
I was new to Florida...a client at a hair salon told me to consider Dr. Nickel from Holiday, Fl. Then my adult niece told me about her as well. I figured 2 people that didn't even know each other had good things to say about her. Dr. Nickel did my first examination to "get to know me" medically and personally. I was impressed w/ quality and time spent w/ me. At her insistence, a slight symptom I remarked about casually, alerted her immediately and she ordered a CT scan "just to be sure" something wasn't out of the ordinary. Thank God she did, because she saved my Life with that scan and quick diagnosis. Yes, it was a small malignant tumor-stage 1-kidney cancer. It was removed surgically and I am fine today. I will always listen to her advise closely. She worked w/me when my health ins. was in a transitional stage. And has always prescribed generic drugs when I've asked her to keep my costs down at the pharmacy. I like her and I will continue to use her as my Primary doctor.
She is very professional as well and well organized. Listens to you and keeps track of your medical history present and past.She is also caring and friendly. Me, my husband and my babies loveher and the nurses. She is the best doctor I have ever had.
very caring and takes time to listen to what you have to say
Dr Nickel is my Wife's Doctor and all I can say is she is the BEST! I wish that I had a Doctor like her..
Dr. Nickel takes alot of time and seems to care alot about what you have to say to her. I'm glad I found her and will recommend her to others!
She does not care about her patients. This person should not be a doctor. She is only out for the money.
Dr. Nickel is a very caring and compassionate doctor. I would certainly recommend her to my friends and family.
This doctor is uncaring and professional incompetence. When I told her the medicine she prescribed for me was not helping she said, "Oh well". the next day I received a letter from her stating she was no longer my doctor because of poor dr/patient relationship. I had spent less then 30 minutes total and only 4 appointments with her.
Dr Nickel seems to make snap judgements of a person's character that are insulting. Tests are demanded without asking if a specialist has already done them, and you are expected to allow them before leaving even when the purpose of your visit was unrelated. The wait time 3 out of 4 times has been over 45 minutes just in the outer waiting room, and then an additional 20 minutes in the exam room.
