Professional and Knowledgeable

Dr. Nichols and his staff have been nothing short of helpful and professional, both in person and on the telephone, every time I had dealings with them. Dr. Nichols is very educated in his field and has helped me greatly. I heartily recommend Dr. Nichols!

Dr. Nichols was very thorough in his exam & had already reviewed all of my medical records prior to my appointment. He was able to find & fix my problem that multiple other doctors hadn't been able to do. His staff were the most friendly & competent I've seen in a long time. During my procedure, everything was explained & I felt very comfortable & very well taken care of. It's unfortunate that some can get on review sites & bash good doctors.

Very rude doctor, with absolutely no regard for his patients. I have never had a doctor talk to me the way he did.
