We drove 5oo miles each way to have Dr. Nichols do a third procedure on me. That should clue anyone in on what kind of Doctor he is. So very grateful that I landed in Dr. Nichols care in the midst a stroke. He saved my life. He showed true concern, answered all of our questions. He has done 3 procedures on me. And I will continue to see him. He is very caring, talented and cautious Doctor. Rachel his RN is just as wonderful. She works with you in every step, she never makes you feel stupid when you have a question. She works hard for Dr. Nichols and is a joy to work with. I will forever be grateful for her kindness and knowledge. There aren't enough stars for this team.

Dr. Nichols saved my life!!! He truly cares about his patients. He is professional, caring and a true class act. Something that you no longer find with many medical professionals. I do miss the attentiveness and genuine concern from his former nurse, Carol.

Dr Nichols just performed an angiogram and Embolization in the past two week’s! He got me in within a week of finding that my aneurysm had grown in size. Not to mention right before Christmas!I truly feel he cares about his patients and knows his job really well!

Phenomenal vascular neurologist who is well versed in fibromuscular dysplasia and spontaneous coronary artery dissection, as well as brain aneurysms. He is kind, direct, explains things very well, very thorough and has a good sense of humor. He did a cerebral angiogram and it was the first time I didn't get a hematoma! Thrilled with Dr. Nichols.

Rachal is rude and was arguing with me on the phone. It took 2 weeks to get an answer about my test results and Dr. Nichols didn't bother calling me back personally even after convening a conference about me. Dr. Nichols didn't seem to care that I've already seen a neurologist.

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.

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.
