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??

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Nichols' Care Philosophy

I believe in cutting edge technology merged with care and compassion. I truly believe that an informed patient is the best patient. I like to discuss the condition and the different treatment options available. I believe in exhausting conservative care before surgery should be considered in most instances.
