    He makes you feel so at ease, kind, caring & just a terrific person. I had been to many Doctors for my problem & Dr Nichols went beyond the obvious & schedule tests to see if there was an underlying problem. My Internist just wanted to put a bandaid on the problem, so to speak. Love Dr Nichols??
