Nicolas was born and raised in the Midwest (Ohio). His medical experience started as a child of a Type 1 diabetic father. Early in life, Nicolas learned how to dose insulin, take blood pressure, and give his father insulin injections. This was the precursor that later lead him into the medical field. He graduated from Wright State University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in June of 2005. He went on to finish his medical education here in the Valley at ATSU and graduated in 2010. He began his professional experience in underserved areas, specializing in Emergency Medicine and Urgent Care services. After years of practicing ‘traditional’ medicine, he became frustrated with the mentality of fixing medical problems with pills and bandaids that treat the symptoms, instead of finding and treating the underlying cause. This backwards mentality, combined with his love and skill at procedures, (self proclaimed best trigger point therapist in the valley) was the prime motivation for him to move into integrative medicine.
Nicolas is known for his exceptional bedside manner. “I listen to my patients. When you combine the simple task of listening, with medical knowledge and common sense, this is the recipe for a good provider that just can’t be taught”. He also has a tremendous love for business, the arts, music, painting, building, gardening, outdoors, sports and animals. At home, Nicolas is blessed to be surrounded with love from his wife, mother, daughter, five cats and two dogs
