There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr. Nikam really explained everything about my condition and what to expect in the future. I feel the doctor took extra time to make sure I understood everything. I would highly recommend Dr. Nikam to anyone needing a vascular surgeon.

The only problem I had was the waiting time to see the doctor. I waited for at least 45 mins. I understand doctors can run late and are busy. Someone could have come into the room and told us he was running late. Just sitting there for that long of a time without an explanation was not courteous to me. I was on time to see him per their request for checking in time. I am not mad just saying for future visits for the patients.
