Specialties

Dr. Scott A Nicol has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Caring and Thorough

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Nicol for 11 years. He has always addressed our concerns and never takes a shortcut to resolving any of our concerns. He is extremely thorough! We're glad he's younger than us, which means that he'll be around to care for us as we age!

I will never recommend this Pediatrician to family or friend's

This Doctor performed a circumcision for my infant son. This experience was the worst experience we have ever had. The procedure was done incorrectly and a surgeon had to step in and stop my son's bleeding. He offered no viable explanation and just said "sorry guys" and proceeded to try and suggest that we may have history of bleeding profusely in our family. He utilized the wrong size instrument and cut my son in several places. Needless to say, we could no longer trust his judgement and never returned to his office.

Five Stars

I have been amazed with Dr. Nicol. I had been going to a doctor for months who couldn't find anything wrong with me. Dr. Nicol gave me his diagnosis. I was already referred to MUSC and sure enough Dr. Nicol had nailed my diagnosis....no tests....no background of my history.....Just me telling him my symptoms. He has helped me a few different times. Great bed side manner. He is definitely concerned with medications. I don't like being on medicine. He has helped me take as little as possible. And when one medicine didn't work, he kept working with me until we found a medicine that did.

Not Impressed

I have been very disappointed with the care and concern Dr Nicol has demonstrated. His lack of follow up and his ability to write a prescription so easily was very upsetting. I am glad I do not have addiction issues as I could be in serious condition. I was looking for guidance from my doctor and he seemed not very sincere with my issues. Am looking for another one! These days interviewing a doctor is important. Good luck!
