From the front desk to the amazing technician who not only took my X-Ray with clear instructions but was very professional and friendly, to Dr. Nickson who explained everything in both medical and layman terms, was also very friendly and approachable.Thank you for making my visit enjoyable even though I was scared of the unknown. I felt at ease in your care.

Shannon and Danny were so kind. My knee was x-rayed and it was determined I would try a shot. Shannon was very gentle with a shot that could be painful. Everyone there is very professional.

Dr. Nickson and his entire staff have been a welcome relief throughout my leg injury. They all embody that trust and authenticity that so many other health care interactions lack. I would recommend Next Step Ortho to anyone.

In 2013 I shattered my heal and being the weekend the ER recommended contacting Dr. Nickson ASAP the next business day. It was a blessing I was directed to him and his staff. Recently myself and family decided it was time to remove the hardware and of course we went directly to Dr. Nickson. Sure it was a difficult surgery both times but he was always kind, understanding and will shoot straight with you. Many times he knew the answers to questions before they were even asked…………Doc knows his stuff. The best part is he is also a great person as well. Meaning you get the best of both worlds so to say. He also treated my daughter due to a minor cheerleading matter as well so he is great with kids as well. I would highly recommend contacting him if ever needed. Bryan Stewart McKinney, TX

Dr. Nickson performed both of my Achilles’ tendon repairs/reconstruction. He was both caring and empathetic. He is a great communicator and is extremely personable. Being an ex-athlete, I have had numerous surgeries on my knees, shoulder and feet. I can assert with confidence that Dr. Nickson is the best orthopedic surgeon to treat me.

Donna J.
My visit was pleasant & I now know what I need to do to feel better

Kay M.
I have been going to Dr Nickson for a few years now for severe pain in my foot, which turns out to be arthritis. He is always patient and kind, giving as much information to you as possible. Matthew does a great job as PA, he is just as patient and kind as Dr Nickson. Everyone on staff is always cheerful and respectful. I love that we can see all information on the patient portal after each visit, and can schedule appts on line. I would highly recommend Dr Nickson!

I went in for a follow up on knee pain. After having a shot and 4 weeks of therapy, my knee wasn’t any better. Surgery was discussed and now it’s in the planning stages. Surgery was explained and options were discussed. I love the fact that Dr. Nickson explains everything prior to you making decisions.
