I had been looking for a doctor with whom I could feel comfortable talking about both physical problems and mental/emotional issues after experiencing how closely they interact with each other. Also a doctor who could discuss the challenges of aging. As soon as I saw Dr. Nichols’ website where he writes about helping people work from their center, I thought maybe he was the right doctor for me and once I spoke to him in an introductory phone call I was ready to go ahead with setting up an appointment. Dr. Nichols makes time to talk, I never felt rushed, I felt heard, and that Dr. Nichols could see me as a whole person, not just a patient with a list of symptoms. He helped me understand my test results, affirmed decisions I’d made about treatments and also suggested other medications that could be helpful. He was warm and caring and I look forward to working with him again.
