Dr.Nichols and staff are always pleasant. They did what they could at the moment to improve my health issue and sent me home with a plan. Unfortunately my body has not responded so I will need to return.

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.
