My goal is to educate adults and children regarding health maintenance and growth of their entire self and to engage in clinical and epidemiological research on the effects of spiritual training, growth, and practice on the overall health of individuals and communities. I seek to implement this education and research process through program development, student and resident training, outpatient care, mass media and community outreach.

Dr. Nic works with children, young adults, and their families coping with chronic health issues such as gastrointestinal distress, fatigue, inattention, hyperactivity, and food and environmental sensitivities. These conditions and others can be difficult to treat by conventional medicine but frequently benefit from an Integrative and Functional Medicine approach. He believes in the power of listening to each patient’s story. By using science, clinical wisdom, and innovative tools, he can often identify the underlying causes of chronic diseases. These include predisposing factors, triggers, and events that preceded the shift from health to dis-ease and can be affected by genetics, nutrition, and lifestyle behaviors. He works with patients and families to create a personalized program by prescribing safe and effective, evidence-based treatments, behavior and dietary changes to seek optimum health.
Dr. Nic is a graduate of St. George's University School of Medicine. He completed Pediatrics residency at Dayton Children's Hospital in Ohio and Clinical Fellowship in Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital in Cleveland. He is board-certified in General Pediatrics and board-eligible in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology.
