Doctor was good and thorough, answered all our questions and took time to review X-rays and options for us. Biggest negative was that there were lots of yucky toenail clippings in the middle of the floor from the previous patient. Prettygross even though the office was nice and new and otherwise clean. Overall I would recommend this doctor--quick to get in and out and easy scheduling.

My family has gone to Dr. Nichols for past Achilles problems and found him to be an excellent Dr. With a solid, reasonable approach to treatment; truly looking to get one back to as healthy, active a person as possible. Nowit's my turn to have Achilles problems so thought of Dr. Nichols immediately for treatment.

The entire staff was very personable and helpful. Dr. Nichols provided me with excellent care and I loved the fact that he explains everything about your issue before he does any type of procedure. By far he is the best doctorI've seen and I would highly recommend him. I was really nervous because I had seen another foot doctor that I didn't feel comfortable with, but Dr. Nichols made me feel very comfortable, he made me feel like I was just having a conversation with a friend. Thank you to the entire staff at DuPage Foot and Ankle.
