About Me

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.

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??
