Wonderful!! Had colon cancer surgery. Recovery was quick and painless. Had access that had to have drain tube surgically inserted. She always went above and beyond even during my surgery. Spent 2 hrs fixing something other than just what surgery was supposed to be.

I do not recommend. With only a glance, she assumed I had a fistula and started saying I needed a seton string procedure and started talking about scheduling the procedure. I didn’t feel comfortable at all with how quick and dismissive of my concerns she was. I got a second opinion and had some additional tests done and her diagnosis was COMPLETELY WRONG. I am so glad I went with my gut and got a second opinion. Seems like she is just looking to schedule procedures to bring in money.

Two big issues. First, I was sent to her being told she’s the best. I waited very long in the waiting room then she came in for no more than 10 minutes and directed me to a different doctor. Gave no direction on anything. Second thing, cost. Prior to insurance it was $390. After insurance it was $240. Now let me remind you, this was not for anything more than an 8-10 minute consultation. I called and talked to Nichol directly voicing my concern and she said tough luck. horrible “doctor”

I have been in adult diapers and incontinent and unable to digest food since my procedure about 2 years ago. A 4 to 6 week recovery was quoted. Despite the physical work put into attempt to recover and return to work, the 30-120 minutes per day have proved to be useless. I'm very confident that I was told to be patient and continue working on recovering until the statute of limitations was up. Follow up consultations were 5 minutes at best. Irresponsible and indifferent. Odd scaring. Avoid!
