Meet Holly Nichols
I'm Holly Nichols. I'm from Wichita, Kansas. I got my Bachelor's degree in Nursing from Newman University. After that, I worked in the Burn Center. That's where my love affair with skin began, and then I went to Wichita State to achieve my Master's degree and continued working with Burn Center and trauma patients at a level one trauma center, and that's what led me down the road of dermatology. I did a preceptorship with a dermatologist in Wichita. Two years later, I found myself back in dermatology. I've been at the Valley for a year now. Now, I take care of the skin that you're in before I was on the traumatic side of it.
My specialty is general dermatology. I take care of diaper rash, acne, psoriasis, eczema, full body skin checks, skin cancers, surveillance, biopsies, and simple excisions.
I came to Arizona Dermatology after being on several interviews in the Valley. The reason I found my home here was because of the atmosphere. We're all on the same team. Everybody is here for the benefit of the patients; we've all been patients. I would say dermatology patients are kind of unique in that they want to get better. Your skin is your picture to the world and so that's very important to people. I love educating patients, and in dermatology I can fulfill two needs: I like to talk, I'm a people person, and education, and they’re open to that.
