Love Dr. Nischal! Phenomenal w/ children

February 13, 2019

Dr. Nischal is the best doctor my son has ever seen. He is an extraordinary person.

February 12, 2019

Dr. Nischal gave us an experience that I have never had before with an eye doctor- smart as a whip, quick moving yet completely thorough, incredibly knowledgable, all while making my child (who can be quiet and anxious) engaged and laughing. I can not even conceive of how Dr. Nischal could improve- he was perfect in every way!

February 12, 2019

Dr. Nischal's office & all his staff are amazing!! I'm so glad my kids are under his care!! And we love meeting the new interns he's teaching. Dr. Nischal is the BEST doctor!

amazing care and feel lucky to have dr Nichel as our daughter's doctor and advocate. he always engages our daughter and explains what is happening and involves her in her eye care. he is concerned with her total well being- emotional as well as her physical eye issues.
