Dr. Laura Nicholson treated my dad in the ER at Scripps Memorial hospital for atrial fibrillation and fluid in the lungs. Her bedside manner was insensitive, inappropriate and offensive. She bluntly told my dad, who is a kidney transplant patient, that there was no way he would ever get a kidney and even if he did he would code on the table. Not only was this information incorrect but extremely damaging to my dad’s morale. Being in the ER and in his medical state, my dad was already scared, anxious and uncomfortable. Dr. Laura Nicholson not only destroyed his confidence but also caused him emotional harm. We asked for another doctor and reported this incident to the hospital. The hospital contacted her regarding our complaint and a few days later she left our family a voicemail. Her message was unapologetic, insincere, and agitated. I would not recommend this doctor under any circumstance.

  • This was the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor visit. First of all I saw the NP Amber , she made me feel like I was a bother to her . As I sat in the chair she told me to stand and pull my pants down then she took three steps back and bent over to pretend to look at the affected area, which made me feel like she didn't want to be near me. I said pretend to looks at because there was no way she could have seen the problem from that position. Then she talked with the nurse to tell he...

They inserted a trachea in the ICU where she lay in a coma like state for 50+ days, she had three seizures and the auto blood pressure cuff burst open her arm artery. This took an additional two surgeries to repair. A...
