Was told by the doctor that she didn't have a lot of time for me because I booked my appointment online. I felt that I should receive the same time as someone who calls in for an appointment. in addition, I felt rushed during the appointment and felt like the physician referred me to another doctor because she didn't have time to address my concerns. I have had really great physician in the past in this practice, however, will be looking to switch to a different physician in the future.

Did not respond to my leg pain issue. Did not ask about my mood which we had talked about in January. Seemed to focus on colonoscopy which I do not need for another 5 years.

She has made a few mistakes concerning facts from my medical record and had the gall to state in my chart that I never informed her of a previous type of statin that I had been taking prior to becoming her patient. When in fact I had specifically requested it. But she was all hyped to get me on another pravastatin. I did not do well on it and quit taking it. Afterwards I researched it and it is not recommended for patients with low thyroid. She replied most of them are that way, which I concede. But to state that I never told her about it, that is too much. She gives off a quiet hostility towards me. I will be changing physicians at some point in the not too distant future. In my first meeting with her she wrote that I had been in Prison. What t f. She is not the best listener.

Dr. Nichols REALLY listened to my concerns. I have suffered from muscle spasms and cramps for several years. Previous Doctors just prescribed muscle relaxers, or told me to drink more water. She actually had some input for me, and says she suffers from leg cramps also. After my surgery (Total knee replacement) I will be visiting her to get some blood work, and find out WHY I experience them so frequently. She thought perhaps, anti histimines, or possible I needed a magnesium supplement. I really felt like she took an interest in me.

Dr Nancy Nichols is thorough and sensitive, plus she really takes the cost of care options into consideration and involves me in tradeoff decisions. I enjoy the security of having continuity of care. She also referred my husband to a doctor in the group at another location and he was a great choice. Thank you, Nancy!

Dr.Nichols is a very caring Dr. but, sometimes she doesn't pay as much attention to my comments as she should. i don't have insomnia. But, I feel she is a through Dr. And checks out everything that could cause the problem.

As expected. Dr Nichols did not tell me herself that she planned to order my maintenance medications. I found out she had completed sending them to my pharmacy. I found out from the MA. I usually order maintenance meds by 90 day mailorder. She ordered 30 day supplies. My insurance requires 90 day Rxs for maintenance meds. If she had communicated, I would have been able to tell her these things before she wasted her time doing the wrong thing. This did inconvenience me, but it will make extra work for her.

[...] Dr. Nichols was 30 minutes late. I got someone's attention regarding this, and then Dr. Nichols came right in. She explained that she had several patients who were sad about losing an important person in their lives, and did not want to leave them while they were crying. I told her I appreciated that she was compassionate and listened to them, but I would have appreciated if someone would have come into the room and explained why she was so late. Otherwise the visit was fine. She listened to me and was thorough in looking through my records and going over the current, active problems.

I felt that the doctor was a little behind schedule which as a healthcare provider myself I understand happens. This being my 1st appointment with what is to likely become my primary health care provider it would've been nice to have a bit more time to get to know each other.

I am diagnose with a rare disease and Dr. Nichols have gone above and beyond to find information and treatment related to it.

This was my 1st time to see this doctor after being Dr. [...]'s patient for 10 years. This doctor is a flake! She did ALL the talking - tells all her patients to watch something called "Ted Talks" on YouTube. She didn't even think to look down my throat and ask me to say "Ahhhh" = 1st time in my life that wasn't done in a routine checkup! She told me that she falls asleep by visualizing a childhood book with an elf on the cover!!! Did NOT inspire confidence in me at all! NEVER followed up like she said she would via My Chart = I had to interpret all my own results via comparisons with previous ones. I'm canceling my appt. for her for next September and I never want to see her again. [...]

I really didn't get an office visit as I ended up in the ER due to low heart rate. Dr. Nichols handled it very well and I was very impressed! Great dr. I can't wait for my real visit.

[...] was my initial visit to the doctor. I had another care available before. Doctor, assist were excellent considering that they knew nothing about me and we had to cover a lot of ground.
