A very caring and professional man.I would and have recommended him to several people.

Dr. Nichols did my cataract surgery. He is thorough and knowledgeable and personally does all follow up visits. He's personable and willing to spend the time to answer questions and concerns, no matter how small.

GET A 2ND OPINION! My daughter has been a pt of this office for 10 yrs. She is now 15 & due to her prescription has always has to wear extremely thick eye glass lens and according to Nicole, the contact lens "specialist" her contact lens were the "best they could do". We never questioned this, and shame on us! She recently walked out of a new eye Dr with glasses & contact lens & immediately started reading license plates, street signs and more! She had no idea everything she was missing. SO SAD
