Dr Nischal always goes above and beyond with his level of care for my child. She has a chronic eye condition and we see him regularly. He always listens to our concerns and is wonderful with my daughter. I can't imagine what we would do without him.

Dr. Nischal always takes plenty of time. He covers and reviews all health issues. Listens to anything, questions, concerns, he makes sure everything is answered and understood. I feel I always receive the best care, and am 100% confident in Dr. Nischal.
