Although Dr. Nichols is an excellent practitioner, his billing office is the exact opposite. We received past due statements 1 year after we had paid our bill in full. While trying to resolve this (the billing office does not return phone calls) we were sent to collections for a mis-applied copay--which we had to find from a visit 18 months ago. No apologies. If you visit him, keep all receipts etc....you will need them to prove you paid. Very poor accounting practices.

He makes you feel so at ease, kind, caring & just a terrific person. I had been to many Doctors for my problem & Dr Nichols went beyond the obvious & schedule tests to see if there was an underlying problem. My Internist just wanted to put a bandaid on the problem, so to speak. Love Dr Nichols??
