Spring, TX |
Dr. Nichols is very up to date on his knowledge and diagnosis. His staff is very good. I trust him to direct my treatment before during and after a visit when I have need of care. He has referred me to other excellent Doctors and Surgeons. He himself is an excellent Surgeon. He relates to his patients and makes sure they understand procedures, medications and follow-up.

Dr Nichols saved my husband's life. When another ENT failed to diagnose a cancerous tumor on his vocal cord, Dr. Nichols saw a suspicious lesion, biopsied it and gave a proper diagnosis. We were sent to MD Anderson, my husband was treated and lives to tell about it. God bless this man!! We can ask for nothing more.

I have been going to Dr. Nichols for 18 yrs. He is a God sent angel. He figured out what was wrong with me and he fixed me when no-one else could. I am forever indebted to him and his lovey staff for giving me my life back. Erica Your youngest meniere's disease patient.

Dr. Nichols is a very knowledgeable balance specialist. If any of family or friends were to suffer as I have, I would most certainly refer them to him. During my last visit for balance problems he noticed that I had a sinus infection, which I was unaware of. My balance problems had reoccurred and I was able to get an appointment quickly.

I have been a patient of Dr. Nichols for 20 years and I have recommended him to everybody I know. He has always given me all the time that was needed to answer all my questions and he made sure I understood the answers. You can't beat him.

I have been seeing Dr. Nichols for a variety of ENT matters for about 15 years. He has treated me for things as back wall drip, allergies, acid reflux, hypothroidism and thyroid cancer including removal of my thyroid glands. He works very well with my other doctors when needed and when asked. He has even provided information for my sister in Phoenix who is not his patient. He is very good at explaining all of the issues and risks involved with any type of surgery.

My experience was great! Dr Nichols is so thorough and efficient. He takes care of your needs and explains everything where you can really understand.

My husband suffered from sinus problems for years. Dr. Nichols performed surgery on him and changed his life. My husband’s sinus problems are gone. We only wish he had seen Dr. Nichols years ago. Dr. Nichols is a professional in every sense of the word. He is methodical and very exact in all the steps of treatment. He clearly knows his craft. He explains things in a way that one can understand, and his bedside manner is warm and polite. His office staff was great.
in Houston, TX |
Before being referred to Dr. Nichols, I suffered nearly every fall-winter season for about 60 years from allergies that often turned into sinus infections, and frequently were accompanied by bronchitis. Following a number of tests Dr. Nichols operated on one sinus. My recovery was fast and painless, and I made it through my first fall-winter season in many years without visiting a clinic for sinus related problems. Dr. Nichols and his staff are courteous, pleasant, and professional.
in Katy, TX |
His expertise and credentials are beyond compare. In addition, he is the most punctual doctor I have ever been to. His staff runs a very tight ship, great teamwork and very professional. Doesn't get any better.
in Tomball, TX |
I was referred to Dr. Nichols by my ENT after nearly 6months of ear related issues. My ENT couldn't get the infection under control so he referred me to Dr.Nichols. After one treatment Dr. Nichols stopped the infection, said the problem was occurring because I had a significant hole in my ear drum and scheduled surgery. 3 weeks later I had tympanoplasty with mastoidectomy surgery. Though painful the surgery was a success! Dr. Nichols couldn't have been more caring. Highly recommend!!
