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.

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.

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!!
