I am very pleased with the care I receive from Dr. McNichol. I recently had my husband start seeing her as well. She is very down to earth, easy to talk to, and has always provided me with exceptional care and referred me when appropriate to specialists which all have been great. She is very thorough and I would definitely recommend her and have.

If you need a functional doctor who prescribes medicine and gives you a referral she is the right person. If you are looking for someone who listens, is interested in you as a person and to build a long term relationship with I would say go look for someone else, which is what I will be doing.

Peggy is a special doctor. She is real and she cares about her patients. She cheered for me through my course of many treatments for breast cancer. She sent me to the right doctors. Peggy is a very special person to me and my family. Thanks Peggy your the best.

Dr. McNichol was my personal physician for many years. Her excellent communication skills, professionalism, and sense of humor made our time together very productive and informative, as well as enjoyable. Dr. McNichol is a great listener, an excellent diagnostician, and has the ability to lay any worries or fears to rest with sound medical information. Moving off the mainland makes it impossible for me to continue seeing Dr. McNichol; I hope I find another doctor of her caliber in Hawaii.

I have only seen Dr. McNichol once after becoming unhappy with my previous primary care doc. I have never met a doctor who is so down-to-earth and approachable. She truly took the time to listen to my concerns and I never felt rushed. And, she has a great sense of humor. Front desk staff is nice and scheduling wasn't a pain. A+!

She's been my primary doc for several years and I've always had good experiences with her. She's smart and inquisitive, which you always want in a doctor, but also has a great sense of humor and approachability.
