Ratings and Reviews
At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Was referred by primary care physician. Did not understand that Dr. Nixon doesn't actually perform the hip replacement. Had to get referral to another doctor. Seems a waste of time. Dr. Nixon seems competent enough.
In March my mother went to this facility for care and everyone was amazing. Then when I broke my metacarpal you took great care of me. Everyone was friendly and caring and Dr Nixon answers everything in full detail. All around incredible care
This was our second time seeing this doctor. Both times, he came in the door and announced \I do not know what to do for you.\" He did not take the leg pain my daughter has seriously and very much dismissed the issues she was having. We left feeling helpless. He wanted to see my daughter in another 4 weeks - for what????? $$$$$"

I was a patient at MCO under another DO who is no longer practicing. I was confident that Dr. Nixon would deliver the type of visit I had in the past. And he did, took time to listen and was honest on treatment.
Everyone was very welcoming, the precautions taken for Covid were excellent. Nurses, X-ray techs and Dr. Nixon all spent quality time with me and made me feel very comfortable. I feel my injury was addressed, and explained perfectly.
DR. Nixon is a just a wonderful Pearson and doctor. All his staff are just wonderful to deal with. Could not find any negative in any thing at his office. great place to go, in crystal lake or Huntley. could not think of going any where else.
Because he takes the time to listen to patients concerns, and is very effective in communicating the medical issues, and options available for diagnosis and ongoing treatment and care in a very reassuring manner.
I was pleased until the telephone "visit." I've been in a boot cast for eight weeks. I forgot to ask & Dr. Nixon did not discuss with me my next level of activity allowed. Do I still put the boot on for activity outside my home? Do I graduate from the boot entirely now? For a broken ankle, this kind of basic omission is unacceptable. Telephone visits are a joke. It's sad that providers can bill Medicare for these virtual visits now. Maybe they work for sore throats, psych counseling & allergies, but NOT for orthopedic care.
Dr. Nixon makes you feel like one of his family and always, always greets you with that.wonderful smile of his.. He takes the time to answer ALL the questions we ask..HE SHOULD BE GIVEN A BIG RAISE!!!!!
I have seen Dr. Nixon at least three times. Every visit was caring for my concerns. He answered all questions asked and I felt in his answers he displayed experience, competence and addressed my questions adequately. As a patient with a health issue, I first look at a doctor and assistance who demonstrates compassion. I will continue to see Dr. Nixon as needed.
I appreciate that Dr. Nixon has listened to my concerns and is willing to try a more conservative approach to treatment, rather than rushing into surgery. He has been compassionate while painting a realistic picture of all my options so I am prepared to make an informed decision.
The office is close to home..I feel Dr. Nixon makes little effort to personally relate to me as a patient. While knowledgeable and capable for treatment, he acts kind of bored during interactions. I would rate him low on the bedside manner.
I have seen Dr. Nixon with a variety of patients for nearly a decade. Not only has the quality of care of the patients been superb, but the care he has provided me throughout this process has been outstanding.
This was the first time seeing Dr. Nixon. He was very nice. Asked all the right questions. .Had good insight into the problem. Made reasonable and well thought out recommendations. He was very comfortable to talk too and was open to questions and explanations. He seemed to be genuinely interested and concerned about relieving pain.
