Dr. Nischal is above surveys. It is almost offensve. He is a brilliant man, a gifted physician, and literally has saved my daughter's eyesight. I cannot put what he is in any kind of objective survey. I don't know what I would do without this man in my precious angel's life. Don't bother sending surveys on him. You've got the best there is.
