Kind, skilled, compassionate prifessional.

Seldom does one encounter a physician who actually listens to the patient. When I found Dr. Nichols a few years ago, he was the best thing that happened to encourage a positive, healthy lifestyle for me. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Nichols and his staff.

caring, compassionate

I have recently changed doctors and am I happy with my choosing Dr. Nichols. He actually reads my chart before seeing me i.e. feed back from referral doctors, has good eye contact while talking with me and is compassionate...which show me he cares. If you need a new doctor Dr. Nichols would be a great choice.

Awesome Doc

I am NOT a lover of docs and he will tell you this. I actually tell him everytime I see him, but he takes it well, and for a doctor he is tops. He listens to me and actually talks to me as if I am a real person, imagine that, a real person, not a patient. If you want a good Doctor, this is the one.
