Just a general lack of connection or acknowledgment of my feelings. My husband and I both felt our input was somewhat dismissed and that pressing for more information was not welcome. Just not a good fit for our family.

Dr Nichols is great! She listens, answers questions well, and discussed options available. She asks me appropriate questions and knows my history.
