it is always a pleasure during appointments with Dr. Nischal. he and his staff are always great with my daughter and are understanding that she is 17months old and not always willing to cooperate. I could not ask for better care.

We have always had excellent care from CHP. Dr. Otabi & Dr. Nishel were actually a 2nd opinion I received when I wasn't comfortable with the first doctor we saw in the South Hills (Not affliated w/ CHP). I chose them because they were so close to home & they were referred to me by our Pediatrician. I'm so relieved I came back to CHP. The care & attention we get from ALL of the staff makes a world of difference when dealing with your child's health. I felt 110% comfortable with the advice & course of action. I can't thank you enough for all you guys do.
