Dr. Nischal is an absolute treasure and we have no issues traveling 4 hours round trip to see him. He is an incredible doctor, and really knows what he is talking about. I have never had a bad experience with him, and always enjoy the appointments. He always seems like such a happy fellow and never really seems to be rushed or impatient.

Dr Nischal was an excellent provider

Dr. Nischal is awesome! As a parent, he explains in detail what is going on. When pertaining to my child, he is funny and makes it a very easy visit. My son loves him :)

May 02, 2018

Dr. Nischal is our favorite Dr. at Children's Hospital. My daughter actually gets very excited to go and see him. He has always taken time with her to make sure he fully exams her eyes and discusses everything with both my husband and I.

Dr. Nischal was such a genuine man! My husband and I are so pleased with our experience with our consult!

Dr. Nischal is an amazing doctor and man. We drive 8 hours from Charlotte to see him for an appointment and would happily drive 30. We trust Dr. Nischal completely and don't have to worry about our son's eyes because of Dr. Nischal's care. Dr. Nischal's knowledge, thoroughness, kindness and ease with patients and parents is way above any doctor that we have ever seen for ourselves or any of our 3 children. We feel so fortunate to call him our son's doctor!
