Our visit went smoothly and we had the time to talk to the MD and ask questions about her current care and the future medical plan of care. We had more questions after we left and called - the doctor called back within an hour! Very responsive and patient with our questions and concerns.

Overall wonderful experience with both the doctor and all staff.

May 23, 2017

Dr. Nischal was wonderful! We absolutely loved him. He spent a lot of time making sure that my daughter was comfortable with him and with everything that he was doing. I never felt like we were just a number and that he was in a hurry to get on to see the next patient. We drove almost 15 hours for this appointment and it was worth it. He is very knowledgeable and caring.

Too long of a wait every visit!At least 45minutes to an hour wait!

Dr. Nischal is an amazing doctor. My daughter really likes him and he always puts her right at ease. Yesterday we were not scheduled to see him but her rheumatologist wanted her eyes to be checked before driving back to Ohio. He graciously worked us in and gave her a very thorough examination. We are very grateful for Dr. Nischal and his excellent care for my daughter.

Dr. Nischal is a wonderful doctor and has a very good relationship with his patient!! My son loves him and he always goes above and beyond to figure things out with our son's care. Would not go anywhere else!!
