Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Kaiser Permanente Web page. I am Nicole Briggs, OD. I am an optometrist at the La Mesa Medical Office Building and have loved working for Kaiser Permanente since 2001.
I am from Columbus, Ohio, and graduated from Ohio State University with my doctor of optometry degree in 1999. My husband and I met while in school and moved to San Diego in 1999 to get away from the harsh Ohio winters. We love to hike outdoors and love skiing during the winter. Our daughter and dog bring us much joy.
My optometry practice includes contact lenses and general optometry exams. My philosophy is to listen to the member first. I then administer the tests that are necessary to address the member's needs and concerns and gather clinical information regarding the member's vision and eye health to make sure he or she receives the best possible care.
My faith is extremely important to me, and it is because of my faith that I stay healthy in mind and spirit. As far as physical health, eating nutritiously is paramount (I have a degree in nutrition as well), so I try to incorporate healthy eating in my life and my patients' lives.
