Dr. Nickens will be joining the clinic on September 5th, 2023, to provide his expertise in patient-centered healthcare.
Dr. Nickens’ journey into medicine was inspired by his personal experiences as a patient. Dealing with allergies and asthma during his formative years, he encountered various healthcare providers.

For the past six years, he has been based in Amarillo, providing clinical care through FMC.
Reflecting on his decision to return to the region, Dr. Nickens expressed his appreciation for the small-town lifestyle, the warmth of the community, and the unique charm of the Panhandle. Despite not having lived in Shamrock before, his strong ties to the surrounding areas make the town feel like home.
