everything was wonderful he's a very good doctor

August 08, 2016

Dr. Nischal is a godsend. We could not be happier with him and have already recommended him to others suffering from the same rare condition. We have traveled to Pittsburgh from San Francisco multiple times to see Dr. Nischal and will continue to do so as needed in the future because he is the only doctor to whom we felt completely comfortable entrusting our son's care.

July 13, 2016

Dr. Nischal is amazing. He is great with my child and really shows that he cares. He is very knowledgeable about my child's rare condition and can answer all of our questions. My family loves him!

July 12, 2016

Doctor and staff are very courteous and professional.

July 05, 2016

always a pleasant and productive yearly visit.

June 14, 2016

Dr. Nischal is an unusual doctor who is able to work at a world-class level medically, and yet talk personally and directly to children.

May 25, 2016

The doctor from London was very focused, confident, a world expert on my son's condition, and used humor to lighten our visit and make our son feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this physician.

May 18, 2016

Dr Nischal is a great doctor, and really shows concern and respect for my daughter and for my opinion of things. His staff is very kind and professional. I would highly recommend him to any other parent for his or her child.

May 12, 2016

Dr. Nischal treats multiple members of our family and I have extreme respect for him. He treats the whole patient and makes observations outside of just the eyes. He has even made clinical observations of family members that were not were not the patient at that given appointment. He has a great bedside manner with children but also with parents. I highly recommend him and trust the medical decisions he helps us make.
