Specialties

Dr. Alphonso E Nichols III has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Excellent Physician and Patient Care

My son, 9 yrs, ADD, Anxiety, ASD, has been seeing Dr. Nichols for a couple of years now and we couldn't be happier with him. He is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, and kind. My son looks forward to his visits and I feel grateful to have found him. Our discussions are candid and comfortable. On more than one occasion I've had to contact Dr. Nichols outside of our normal visits, and in every instance, he has made himself quickly available and has been fully engaged. There is no doubt in my mind that Dr. Nichols cares for my son and my family as a whole. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

mom and behavioral health professional

I don't know where our family would be without Dr. Nichols. He gives us such sound recommendations and is so relatable. He really likes to puzzle out the issues of our (somewhat) complicated child, and then present us with options for treatment. We have followed him to several practices and locations and would not consider another psychiatrist for our child. I have recommended him in both my professional and personal capacity.
