The comments below reflect the 20 most recent comments for this provider:


During my last visit, more time was spent talking/joking with me about the fact that I would not be taking my 2 year old trick or treating. I laughed in response to my discomfort and not knowing what else to say. I brought up a question of a small concern and an ultrasound was ordered, regardless of me communicating that if it wasn't something to be concerned about, and no possible causes were given for this concern, then I did not think an ultrasound was necessary. One was still ordered and I did not schedule the appointment.


Overall, I've been pleased with my experience with this provider. My only frustration, which occurred at this most recent visit, was the provider changing the date that was being used to calculate how far along my pregnancy is. At the prior visit, the provider indicated that we were going to calculate the progress of my pregnancy based on the due date, not on my estimation of last missed period. At this visit, he changed that method and stated that since the difference between my estimated date the the date provided during my ultrasound were less than six days apart, we'd use the date of my last missed period for estimation. My frustration was that he insisted that he was using the date of the last missed period at the previous appointment, when that was NOT what I was told. It's not a big deal, but I appreciate consistency.


I have been going there regularly during my pregnancy. There have been two occasions where I almost left because I was waiting so long to see the doctor.


He made many fat comments with an example being "maybe you'd be better off if you switched to a salad for a meal" or "your symptoms match with pcos but it's probably just your weight" and when I said that I struggled with weight loss I was told to "stop expecting miracles to happen". These comments were inappropriate and I hope he does not treat all overweight patients like this.


*Dr. Nichols is a very good dr.
