"Superior Medicine, Diagnosis, Healing, Foot & Ankle Pain Relief...Period!"
-Dr. Richard A. Nichols


I would recommend Dr. Nichols to anyone I know. He is very skilled and also has excellent people skills. He is a Doctor who really cares about talking to and listening to his patients. — P. Izzo

Finding medical care in which you feel complete confidence and trust can sometimes be frustrating as well as discouraging. I received Dr. Nichols; name as a referral from a friend. Dr. Nichols truly cares about his patients and has your best interested at heart. He listens; takes the time to fully explain everything; he is cautiously aggressive in treatment and gets the desired results. — L. Flaherty

I want to thank Dr. Nichols for the help he has given me. I went to you in desperation after suffering under the care of another doc with severe heel pain. You weren’t even my second opinion – you were my 4th! You correctly diagnosed me and recommended I wear Z-coils 100% of the time. After 6 months of exclusively wearing them, my feet were healed (boy do they look snazzy with a dress!) and I have been able over the last year to start walking miles each week, do yoga again, and begin getting back in shape. I am even planning to run a 5K this fall. I can’t thank you enough for giving me my life back! — M. Strause
