MR.Ken Nischal is great doctor

March 01, 2016

Dr. Nischal is an amazing pediatric physician

February 17, 2016

Dr Nischal is an amazing doctor and being that my child is only 3 months old he handled her very well. Also he has a great personality and he has helped my daughters problem get better. Very thankful for him

February 10, 2016

Dr. Nischal is the only Doctor that has provided me with lasting help for my eyes. He is wonderful and I trust him with what he tells me. He connected me with Dr. Moreland to get additional help. Dr. Nischal gets the credit for pain and swelling relief. He totally listens to my concerns and cares about me receiving the best of care. I believe if I had other concerns that I wanted to share with him, he would take the time and listen and point me in the direction of a Doctor that would give me help. He has never made me feel like I asked a stupid question. I believe He was a gift from God to me!

I cannot express my gratitude to Dr. nischal on the care he provides my daughter. She is privileged and blessed to be under his watchful surveillance. My family feels he is a gift from above and we love him dearly. We don't know where you found him, but please keep him.

Dr. Nischal is one of our favorite doctors. My 4 year old daughter would not leave the office until she hunted him down for a big hug. He is amazing, honest, and easy to communicate with.
