Centennial |
This was a followup visit after an ER visit. Dr Nichols showed me the scans that were taken and explained everything thoroughly. I felt informed and comfortable upon leaving his office.
Littleton, CO |
He does not get back with patients with test results that he orders. I have been waiting over 3 weeks for the results on. Brain MRI for an aneurysm. All his incompetent nurse can tell me is if it came back bad he would have gotten a call from someone. When asked if he did get a call, she said she didn't know. If he isn't responding to my calls how can I be sure he responded to the radiologists call!

I was very happy with the procedure, what I'm not happy with is how rude the office staff is especially his nurse. I called for recommendations of what I can take for my headaches. I can't take aspirin and was told that if I needed anything else go have a expensive trip to the emergency room. All I wanted was a call back from the doctor. I tried to schedule an appointment but not for 8 weeks what am I supposed to do until than.
