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...more

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
