1st place: Dr. James Nichols
Ahwatukee Family Medical Center
13838 S. 46th Place #320
Dr. James Nichols took over the Ahwatukee Family Medical Center several years ago with the vision to provide excellent care and to improve and maintain the health of patients and their families.
Trained in family medicine, he started out at Tempe St. Luke’s in the emergency room before coming to Ahwatukee Foothills in 2007.
“The overall philosophy is we treat patients like we would like to be treated,” Nichols said. And being a physician-owned practice and not tied to a major medical corporation, that attention to patients allows him to focus on people and not rush them through appointments. And it isn’t just Nichols who follows “The Golden Rule.”
“It’s a whole team effort,” from the front of the office to the back Nichols said.
