About Me

I have a keen interest in laparoscopy and the benefit it affords the patient. It is a definite passion of mine. With laparoscopic procedures such as gastrointestinal, colorectal and hernia surgery, the results are a quicker, more comfortable recovery. At Central Surgical Associates, we work hard to give you the best possible surgical experience.

Dr. Nicols is an excellent surgeon and physician. He truly cares about his patients. He is compassionate and caring. Not many doctors call to personally check on you after surgery and during your recovery. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Nicols!

Dr Nichols has consulted on my GI issues several times and has always been very compassionate and through. My youngest son ended up having Emergency Gallbladder surgery last year and Dr Nichols was awesome to him & me. Nothing like having your 15 y/o go into surgery and your right by yourself but Dr Nichols made sure I knew (face to face) he was okay and checked in on us several times that weekend. I highly recommend Dr Nichols. Good Ol’ Country Boy with a genuine compassion for his patients

Dr Nicols spent a great deal of time with me, wasn't pushy, and really helped me to understand what was going on with my body. He checked on my after my surgery multiple times. I definitely felt he cared. I felt I wasn't in competent and caring hands

Received poor results from surgery that I had in 2016..do not have good bed side matters... did not explain the procedure if the surgery before or after..called his office for problems occurring day after and no contact back with me had to go see my primary doctor who call his office saying that I need to see him. Several complications occurred and he would not consultant. Would not recommend him at all!

Dr. Nicols is an unbelievable surgeon. He made me feel immediately at ease. I have never had a doctor take so much time explaining things to me and answering all of my questions. He is very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing surgery! Again, I cannot say enough great things!

I had a surgery done on my ovaries 2 months prior to seeing Dr. Nicols.. and after that surgery, I had a nurse tell me I think you have melanoma on your stomach, get to a dermatologist asap and get it tested..well I never had time to go to one before seeing Dr Nicols and getting my gallbladder removed..he removed that mole WITHOUT my consent and NEVER got it tested.. now i have new suspicious spots growing and i have no idea whether or not to be concerned considering he never tested that spot

Horrible! Saw him today the absolute rudest Doctor I have ever encountered and being a cancer patient I see a lot of doctors! I would not recommend him to anyone!!! I was referred to him by gi Doctor for hernia repair, but he will not be doing the surgery. He had no knowledge of my cancer and did not care to listen.
