Good check up

January 24, 2018

Excellent doctor. Super rapport with our child. Very knowledgeable on the subject area - takes the time to explain diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.

January 24, 2018

We always have a good experience with Dr. Nischal. He's professional, but cares about each individual child.

January 23, 2018

Keep up the good work.

January 23, 2018

Dr. Nischal was very warm and very experienced. I am glad I came to see him all the way from Los Angeles. He was absolutely worth it and we will be seeing him again and following up about my daughter's eye.

January 19, 2018

Dr. Nischal is the best. Although there are many health care providers from where we are from, Houston, Texas, we make it a point to only have Dr. Nischal take care of my son's vision issues. I put my full trust into him and the team he works with.

January 10, 2018

What a wonderful doctor and entire team! We were very pleased with the care provided and the doctor took the time to explain everything to my daughter so that she was comfortable with her treatment plan.

January 05, 2018

wonderful experience, lovely people working in Dr. office- very kid friendly, my son felt safe and was not nervous because the staff were so in tune with kids

January 04, 2018

Dr. Nischal is an amazing doctor who has performed double eye surgery twice on my daughter. my daughter has a chronic illness with no cure and I would be scared to death and lost without Dr. Nischal. he is the best!

January 03, 2018

They said they were not backed up with the appointments and yet we were seen by the dr way after an hour of our appointment. i really hope it doesn't continue happening because it's become a routine now that every appointment takes 1hr and 30 min at least and it already takes us 45 min of travel each way.
