Get to know Pediatrician Dr. Edward Atkinson Nichols, who serves patients in New Rochelle, New York.

Dr. Nichols, a board-certified pediatrician, was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. He started his family-centered private practice – Nichols Pediatrics – in New Rochelle, New York almost 40 years ago. Additionally, he is affiliated with St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center – both of which are located in New York City, New York. 

Dr. Nichols earned his medical degree from the University of Basel Faculty of Medicine in Basel, Switzerland in 1962.

Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatricians are doctors who manage the health of a child, including physical, behavioral, and mental health issues. They are trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases. 

After being inspired by questions posed by his daughters about their ancestry and having feelings about his own mortality after the death of his wife, Dr. Nichols wanted to find answers to the many questions he had about his family. In his memoir, Fade to White, he details his search for the father whom exited his life when he was just a boy, and also writes about his life, education, profession, and thoughts about being a minority in the world. “Remembering the past is a way in which we can affirm our identity and the value of our own life stories as we grow older” as stated by Dr. Nichols.
