"I am happy to recommend Dr Nikolic as a trusted colleague."
"Dr Nikolic and I work closely together and sit on a complex spine multi disciplinary meeting. He is an excellent doctor with compassion and intelligence. He always puts the patient first. I always value his expert opinion"
"When patients come to see me, they need help and they need my network of Clinicians who are experts in their field. Serge is the epitome of not only an excellent clinician i spinal pain, but he is also deeply empathetic and warm. We regularly hold joint consultations together, for patients who are struggling both physically, but also emotionally, and I have rarely experienced this with another clinician of his calibre. In short, all the Ts and Is are crossed, he is careful, diligent, forward-thinking and puts every patient at the centre of his care. If you're a patient who's struggling to get pro-active care, Serge is your man. He's treated my Olympian patients and members of my family, and I think he's fantastic!"
"Serge is an excellent pain consultant and excels in both the complex and simple things. He and I have worked together in the NHS and in the private sector and I constantly rely on his input. He sees things laterally and offers simple solutions to complex problems. things that work! No hesitation in recommending him"
