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.

It was my very first time seeing Dr. Nichols on Wednesday he immediately knew what was wrong with my aching feet for almost 2 years of suffering. Ive been to several doctors, orthopedic surgeons, specialist. I do suffer from back issues which all the doctors told me that was the cause of my aching, sore, burning, numb feet. Dr. Nichols is my HERO!!!!!!!!!!! A 10 to me is not a high enough number for him. Thank you, to all the staff and mostly Dr. Nichols.

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??
