About Me

Care Philosophy

I realized I wanted to be a surgeon at five years of age while watching my father suture wounds in the emergency room. Now I know my job not only involves physical healing but emotional and spiritual healing as well. Surgery is my life s calling.

What People Say About Dr. C Phifer Nicholson, MD
Reply
I had Bifemoral bypass about 20 years ago by Dr. Nicholson. This is the go to guy. He was great to work with and was no nonsense. I'm sure there are many great Vascular surgeons out there but he's my choice. The following ratings are from 20 years ago but that's how they were.
