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.

May 02, 2016

Everything goes amazing there.

April 19, 2016

Dr. Nischal is always looking for what else he can do to improve my daughter's medical condition. At each visit he makes her feel as if she is his primary concern and will spend as much time with her as necessary.
