My grandmother worked with Dr Gary Nickel who is Adams father, so when I got pregnant 13 years ago she recommended Dr Gary Nickel. Adam took over a few years later and I couldn't have been more thrilled. He delivered my daughter a year ago via C-Section and will deliver my third child in February. I'm so pleased with this family they are extremely professional and personable. I've recommended him to family as well as friends!

Seven months ago I gave birth with a beautiful and healthy baby girl named Clementine with the help of Dr. Adam. He and his staff have been very helpful to me from pregnancy until the day I gave birth. If ever I will get pregnant again and again I would keep going back to him. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family or to anyone who seeks for an OB. Thank you so much Dr. Adam Nickel! You are the best.

Dr. Nickel and his staff were truly amazing. I had some rough patches throughout my pregnancy and ended up being induced at 39 weeks. He made me feel so safe and got us through the long process of induction. The care afterwards has been wonderful. I'd recommend him for OB of Gyno.

DR. Adam Nickel is hands down one of the best Doctors ive ever had the pleasure handling my care. He has delivered 2 of my beautiful children and lead me through healthy pregnancies despite many health issues.He has a very kind gentle demeanor about him but also is very to the point and informative.He is very professional but easy to talk to, extremely charming , and funny. I felt comfort knowing it was him there during my deliveries and after care.

Dr. Nickel is very professional and personable in every appointment I've had with him. He and his staff communicate effectively together, which alleviates the possible frustration and confusion you can have as a patient at any doctor office. The nurses at Tacoma General were fantastic as well, and they worked cohesively with Dr. Nickel. Labor and delivery can be stressful and scary, but I was quickly put at ease by the L&D nurses at TG and Dr. Nickel.

No one WANTS a csection. But if you had to have one, you're in perfect hands. He's right across the hospital so he can pop in and out (read: he's always there for appointment and deliveries, and you don't feel pressured to deliver on the watch) He's friendly, funny, and nice to the husbands too.

I love Dr. Nickel! He was recommended by my family doctor and I couldn't of made a better choice. He was amazing throughout my whole pregnancy. I almost wish I was still pregnant so I can just visit them haha. He does his very best to make sure he is always available to you. The staff is also very caring and friendly. They do a great job of making you feel welcomed and safe while there. I went through some scary things while pregnant and Dr. Nickel was always there giving me the best care.
