I was a ver unhappy patient. He removed a tooth and upon discharge I requested pain medice. He comes out of his office like a mad man and told me if I didn't leave he was going to call the police. He gave me no instructions on what to do. All he said was to eat suger free ice cream. His office manager did get me a perscription for about 1 day of pain medicine.
I think the guy collects the money and sends you home. This is no office, it's a clinic.
The funny thing is that after they pulled the tooth they asked me to sign a release giving them permission to pull the tooth.

I went there for removal of wisdom tooth - because he took my insurance & he was close to home. It's very dark & dungeon like. He is gruff and not nice and the staff are the same - Not Happy campers. I would deffinately NOT go back there.

Why do I get the feeling you left something out of your story?
I have known Dr Nicols for years and he removed all of my wisdom teeth over the years. Not only is he an excellent surgeon but he is very nice guy....

I do not go to the dentist anymore. I went to a guy in NYC. I was having several teeth removed. I always felt a little odd after waking up from anasthesia. After one visit I noticed my underwear was on backwards. I never went back again.

I did not request any pain meds and was prescribed what I needed according to my situation... Personally this post makes me feel safer about going here. He's clearly not over prescribing and adding to drug addictions..

Well I have a very different opinion of Dr. Nicols. My grandson was seen by him and had two molars extracted. He sent him home with an antibiotic and and perscription pain med. Told us how to treat it and the a phone number to be reached in case of emergency. The women in the office were very good, lots of empathy and patience with my grandson. They took his fears away by entertaining him. I would give him an A and would refer him to others. Very nice Doctor!

Had 2 wisdom teeth pulled by Dr. Nicolls and so did my husband. He is awesome and his staff are very attentitive. Loved them all. My only complaint is the wait. Both times I waited over an hour for him to take me. And same went I went back for stitches to be removed. My appt was 1:30 and he didn't take me til 2:30.
Others have complained of the wait time as well.
Other than that, I have no problems with him.

Just to claify.... Dr. Nicols didn't give me any pain medication. The reason was because the RECEPTIONIST had a stack of perscription all filled out with his signate on them.
As far as just hand out "scrips".... Getting pain medication for just 1 day doesn't make you a drug addict. It was 1 tooth being removed so getting 2 or 3 pills was more then enough.

*********
I did have to wait a long time to be seen. 1 hour as previous posters have experenced seems like the amount that I waited. i believe that it's the same all over.

I still remember it as a clinc, sorry.

I have had other teeth puler over the last 2 years and now have a new and wonderful dentist.

Please stop the lies and doctor bashing. I know Dr Nichols personally and he's not capable of being dishonest or improper. Let's stop the fake posts. Seems like addicts write nasty posts

I agree with you,Joey regarding what this person said about Dr.Nichols. I was referred to him by my insurance company with whom knows him n his orice well. I was there yesterday, he pulled a tooth n root. It was a emergency procedure as I was in alot of pain. He was awesome n caring as well s the rest of the office. The 2 lady dr who was in the room with me kept me calm n comfortable while he was working on my teeth. I was in n out in 90 mins. They were all awesome n plan on going back again to fix the other tooth. So from the sounds of her story, something is missing. Why would he call the cops?

excellent and professional, office staff are amazing. made me very comfortable and very little pain afterwards, which I was expecting a lot more due to my tooth being impacted. Yes there is a bit of a wait but what do you expect from a dr with all that experience and client base trying to accommodate and help with emergency situations.
