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.
