My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

When I was growing up in Owego, New York, I witnessed my dad, Dr. Phil Nichols, integrate his practice with his family and social activities. In fact, his office was in our home. Throughout my entire professional career, about 37 years so far, I have tried as much as possible to achieve a seamless integration of my professional, social and family activities because I believe that an alignment of these three is important to a happy and healthy life.  

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I focus on wellness and prevention, with particular interests in the care of older individuals. I am also interested in Occupational and Aviation Medicine. I have extensive experience and training in the management of chronic pain, substance abuse and dependence. 

I enjoy providing personalized healthcare that allows me more time to really get to know my patients and for them to get to know me. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. I will work alongside my patients to maximize their functioning and enjoyment of life.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Nichols

from Thomas in NY March 14, 2020 for Keith A. Nichols, MD, FAAFP

I am grateful that Dr. Nichols is so available to our family. There have been times outside of regular office hours where our family needed him. Sometimes these issues could be handled over the phone or email, but other times a face to face is needed. He always makes us feel so comfortable, regardless of the situation. He is truly a talented physician, and we are so lucky to be a part of his… See more

from Barry in NY March 12, 2020 for Keith A. Nichols, MD, FAAFP

In 2002, I had a stroke. It was four days later before I visited Dr. Nichols. I had no idea that it was as serious as it turned out to be. Dr. Nichols would not let me home. Instead, he called an ambulance and rushed to the hospital. The nurses in the emergency room told my wife that people who have the high blood pressure that I had usually need a lot of rehabilitation or don't… See more

I will not be able to attend the open house. However, I must say that Dr. Keith Nichols, who has been my doctor for nearly 20 years, has been a true blessing in my life.
