Incompetent

No one took any vital signs , checked the gait and vision of a pt with poor recall and inability to answer screening questions . Dr Nichols is cery focused on her own misguided perceptions instead of attending to the needs and concerns of the patient and family

My comment about Dr Carol Nichols

Kudos, to Dr Carol Nichols! I am 52 years old and have always had migraine headaches. I have seen numerous healthcare professionals concerning these debilitating headaches over the past 47 years. I give Dr Nichols credit for promptly offering a medical solution to this incapacitating illness. This is one heck of doctor!
