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!!

Dr. Nischal is a miracle worker. I do not normally fill out surveys but UPMC should know the good, life changing works that Dr. Nischal is responsible for. I cannot say enough good things about him. Dr. Nischal has literally changed my life. I was told my entire life that there was nothing that could be done to improve my eye sight/condition. Until I had the pleasure to meet Dr. Nischal, I was mentally prepared to become blind at some point in the not too distant future. In fact, when I started treating with Dr. Nischal, the vision in my left eye had already deteriorated to 20/200. At this last check up the vision in my left eye was 20/70. I have taken strategic steps to plan my life around the understanding that I would be blind at some point. For example, I became a lawyer so that I could still earn a living when I lost my eyesight. Dr. Nischal also is one of the most pleasant people I have had the privilege of being around and I have truly enjoyed my visits with him. To round this "comment" out, please tell him again that I said thank you and that he has made my life better.

Dr. Nischal treated me with the utmost care and kindness. He and his staff were very professional while still showing genuine concern for my comfort and wellbeing. My condition is quite unique/rare and Dr. Nischal went to great lengths to insure that I and my father understood my current condition to the extent that we were able. We both feel very confident that he will do everything in his power to lay out a course of action that will prevent my loss of vision.

Dr. Nischal is the best. He cares about my child more than I have ever experienced with any doctor before him. We drive over 9 hours to see him and will continue to do so as long as we can see him.
