Location Information


Dr. Nikkel’s passion for medicine started when he was a child. As an athlete throughout his college years, sports medicine was something he was naturally drawn to. While working with a renowned physician, Dr. Lee Rice, Dr. Nikkel confirmed that sports medicine was his passion and what he wanted to pursue. He spent the past 16 years practicing in the Chicago area, but he and his family are now delighted to be living on the beautiful coast of Lake Michigan, and to being a part of this community.

96 Patient Satisfaction Reviews

The ratings displayed below are an average of all patient responses to the Clinician and Group Practice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) survey.

The CG-CAHPS survey is used by hospitals and medical practices across the country and was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Bronson Healthcare’s CG-CAHPS survey is administered by Press Ganey. Surveys are sent to randomly selected Bronson patients after they have had an appointment with a Bronson physician in an outpatient practice setting.

The comments and star ratings you see here reflect the views and opinions of patients who have completed and returned their surveys. Press Ganey independently compiles the data and forwards it to Bronson to be posted.
