Patient Comments (2)
in Novato, CA |
My husband was stricken with a rare autoimmune skin disease which spread rapidly over his body in 2 weeks time. We saw a dermatologist who had 'no idea' what it was. We went to urgent care but again, 'no idea' - just a prescription and 'good luck' in essence. Raging rash continued. We went to Dr. Nichols and he appropriately diagnosed and ordered confirming biopsy. We continue to see him for skin issues and have complete faith in his ethics, skills and excellence overall.

Avoid this doctor at all costs. I am still suffering, 3 years later, as a result of his inappropriate prescription for my condition and negligence in care. Unfortunately it is very difficult to sue doctors for malpractice but I certainly spent a lot of time looking into it.
