Dr. Nichols is an amazing Doctor. Every experience, visit, virtual call has been knowledgeable, professional, and caring. Every procedure the same way. He listens, cares and makes sure you are heard. It's about the patient and he wants to make sure you are treated and taken care off. He follows up and again makes sure u are okay. I wish all my Doctors had the caring and experience of Dr. Nichols. I wish Dr. Nichols was my all Doctor. Great staff and great experience all the way around.

I had a really bad experience with the Ridgeview Endoscopy Center with my colonoscopy on 2/26/20. My doctor is Dr. Nichols and he came highly recommended from a PA. I think he is a great doctor, but the post procedure process at Ridgeview Endoscopy Center is subpar. 5 minutes after vomiting post procedure I was rushed into a wheel chair to leave the center. I was told by the post procedure care provider "this is common" handed a bag to vomit in and told to leave via a wheel chair. I mentioned issues with vomiting and nausea on my procedure documentation completed before the the procedure and also told 5 care providers in the Center before and after my colonoscopy that I had arrived with a headache and nausea. 7 hours later I was in Urgent care to help with the headache and vomiting that should have been addressed before I left Ridgeview Endoscopy Center. I wouldn't have had to go to Urgent Care if Ridgeview Endoscopy Center caregivers had taken the time to listen and act.

Dr.Nichols is amazing! He is kind, compassionate, and an expert in Crohn's and Colitis. He takes time to listen and work together with his patients. The IBD nurses are also top-notch. I'm so fortunate to have found this team of providers.

For the four Nincompooops that left 1 star ratings SHAME on you show yourselves and speak you are scaring people in NEED away from comprehensive treatment. I have been dealing with Nosocomial infections and fallout from Misdiagnoses and gross negligence in prescribing from previous Dr.s. I have been through the three best Hospitals in Syracuse including the teaching university, Presbyterian and Ut Southwestern as well as Baylor in Dallas and Physicisns in my family. He is a sound practioner.
