S. Brandon Nickle, DO


S. Brandon Nickle, DO, provides his expertise of dermatology and high quality care to Tanner Clinic’s patients at the Layton clinic (with Thursdays spent at the East Layton clinic).

Dr. Nickle began his education at Brigham Young University earning his Bachelor of Science in exercise science. He then completed medical school at Touro University, School of Osteopathic Medicine – Nevada, and went on to finish his dermatology residency at Broward General Hospital in Florida.

As a practicing dermatologist, Dr. Nickle’s top focus is his patients. The idea of providing continuous care for a patient from birth to adulthood drew Dr. Nickle to studying and practicing dermatology. The Utah native builds dynamic relationships with his patients to ensure he can successfully aid them.

Another factor that drew Dr. Nickle to dermatology was the skin itself. “You can diagnose internal diseases from manifestations of the skin,” said Dr. Nickle. “The skin is a window to the whole body … you can see a lot based on what’s happening on the outside.”

Dr. Nickle also enjoys helping his patients feel confident in their own skin. Oftentimes, the first thing people notice about others—and themselves—is one’s skin. Because of the skin’s importance and visibility to others, Dr. Nickle strives to solve his patients’ dermatologic issues and help restore their personal confidence.

Outside of his time as a dermatologist, Dr. Nickle is involved with service organizations and enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. He enjoys vacationing with family, camping and being outdoors.
