excellent attendance by physician.

We made the best decision in coming to Dr. Nischal. He was so knowledgeable and extremely patient with our 2 month old. He was able to test our daughter for things that any doctor in Ohio we have been to have not been equipped to do so. We are blessed we found this doctor and we hope we can continue to make the trip to Pittsburgh to see him for follow up care.

The visit with Dr. Nischal was a really good experience. He was extremely knowledgable about our son's condition and explained things very well to us. He was very patient with our questions and made us feel at ease. He has a very pleasant demeanor and my son loved him. He made a difficult health issue a lot easier to deal with. We are very grateful to be under Dr. Nischal's expertise care and have access to Children's. Thank you.
