What People Say About Dr. Tann Nichols, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Poor personality and bad manners. As an example; he doesn't even wait for the answer to his questions if he feels you are taking too long or he already thinks he knows the answer you may give. He'll cut you right off mid-sentence and move on to the next question. For someone that got into the profession of helping humans he sure seems to have an internal dislike for them. Look elsewhere!

I am very please with the care I recieved. I was scared to death when I found out what I was facing prior to surgery but he made me feel comfortable about what was going to happen and how recovery would go and it went just like he said. Plus he did an awesome job on my incision. Ty. Dr. Nichols and Staff.
