Dr. Roger D Nichols Jr has the following 2 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

Though Dr. Nichols did present himself with a friendly and positive bedside manner, he lacks attention to important details in his work. I went for MRI breast biopsy where he noted in his report that he inserted a marker. There was no hemorrhaging during the procedure and recovery was minimal with no hematoma, bleeding or seepage from the incision, etc. I assume, based on this, that the marker did not bleed out of my breast following the procedure. When I went for the mammogram to document the location of the marker from the biopsy, there was no marker present. The radiologist on call at the time of the mammogram tried to state that the marker could have migrated or could have come out. I asked if it migrated, then where was it and why did we not see it on the mammography images? Additionally, to come out of the incision, would there not have had to be excessive bleeding or something causing the marker to come out of the biopsy site? He agreed, that migration was not the cause of not seeing the marker and would not comment on the question of the marker coming out of the site. The issue here is that all procedures associated with this MRI biopsy will need to be repeated in order for follow on medical specialists to be able to adequately address the medical condition. This creates physical pain, wasted time, and double costs of procedures due to Dr. Nichols' negligence. I am very, very disappointed and dissatisfied. I will not return to Dr. Nichols nor would I recommend treatment for anyone at Boulder Community Hospital.
