The Urologist in town! Really cares about his patients and their health. Just a really nice guy. Can't say enough nice things about him and his staff. One of his nurses, Cynthia Valentine treats me like family.

Dr. Nickell is the best dr. I have ever had. He helped me with my neurogenic bladder issues after back surgery. He was always caring, considerate and a true friend. I recommend him to anyone who needs a great urologist.

Dr. Nickell is a very thorough, conscientious and caring physician. I would highly recommend him to family & friends. His office staff is professional and pleasant. His surgical coordinator is helpful, supportive and allayed my fears. My surgical procedure procedure went perfectly and afterwards, Dr. Nickell visited me in the hospital. Overall, I have nothing but praise for this physician and his office.

He is the most considerate, caring, well mannered doctor I have ever had to visit. He will take his time and answer all your questions. He will go out of his way to help. I had a surgery to remove a kidney stone that was last minute. He went out of his way to take care of me even though it was late on a Saturday in the evening time. Wow! Best Doctor Ever!!!

He's a superlative physician, but more than that, he is warm, friendly, understanding and an all-around great guy. One friend, to whom I recommended Dr. Nickell, has thanked me several times for doing so.

My son was experiencing some problems, so we were referred to Dr. Nickell by his pediatrician. Dr. Nickel was patient, caring and very professional. My son relaxed immediately and it was a very positive experience.
